The History of Dortmans Bros. Barn Equip. Inc.
Dortmans Bros. originated in Strathroy, Ontario, 1980. The two brothers, John and Adrian started up their new Patz Dealership out of their parents’ garage, using the family's cucumber and babysitting money to buy their first inventory, and the business has grown from a two man operation to hosting 3 locations in Strathroy, Salford, and Jarvis, with a staff of over 35 employees. It's still very much family oriented, with more then 1/3 of the staff being related. The company has grown from working with silo unloaders and manure handling equipment, to sales and service for Dairy, Hog, Poultry and Beef. We boast that we handle all your in-barn needs. Where every sale is backed by service.
The Company started with one supplier line, and as the business grew, so did the different lines of equipment that Dortmans handled. We soon needed to move out of the parent's garage and purchased our first location in Adelaide Village in 1982, where we still host our head office today.
