I was raised on a family
farm in Southwestern Ontario. As loyal Supertest customers we
were loaned a Canada Vulcanizer and Equipment visible pump by our Supertest Farm Agent.
Around 1960 that hand operated pump was removed and we were given a small electric 'Gas-
boy ' pump. I still have this pump, freshly painted Supertest Orange with a brand new decal.
I still run into our Supertest Farm Agent and have all but picked his attic clean. My sister
worked for Supertest Head Office in London in their later years and somehow I acquired her
job application form; I suppose she must have made an extra copy. And I remember cheering
for Miss Supertest, the company owned hydroplane as she raced on the Detroit River.
Is it any wonder I feel a close relationship to this company? Today, February 20, 2001 as I
launch this site, I hope that it will bring back memories to all who visit. I hope too that these
same visitors will take the time to share their memories with me, and I will pass them on.
I have a small collection of Supertest memorabilia, and an unexplainable urge to research and
document the company's history. Starting today, and hopefully each month I will add a new
aspect of Supertest history, called a "MONTHLY FEATURE". Please join in!
I invite you to bookmark this site and stop back often. I plan to share my collection and
research with you, but that would make a pretty small website. Instead, I have invited several
other Supertest collectors, past employees, and enthusiasts to help me out and share their
knowledge and photos.
I will gladly give credit to all contributors.
