The LeTourneau Inc. company was founded by R. G. LeTourneau in California, USA in the 1920s


R.G. LeTourneau started off as an earthmoving contractor. He then went on to design and build his own machines.

Before WWII, they supplied attachments for Caterpillar machines, but then started to compete building their own designs. They were a pioneer of Diesel-electric drive chains for large machinery.

LeTourneau bought the Titan dump truck line off General Motors in 1984.

The company went on to produce some of the largest Wheeled Loaders ever build with the range topping LeTourneau L-2350, introduced in October 2000. The loader is fitted with a 53 cu yd bucket. The machine weighs 270 tons.

LeTourneau was taken over by Rowan Companies in 1994. The last giant dump trucks were shipped in 1996. In 2006, the corporate name was changed to LeTourneau Technologies. In 2011, Joy Global purchased LeTourneau Technologies, and is based in Longview, Texas.[1]
