For 30 years, Campbell River’s T-Mar Industries has provided engineering, machining, mechanical and fabrication support to industries on the south coast. From service of existing equipment to the development and creation of entirely new products, T-Mar has provided much needed solutions to forestry, mining and hydroelectric sectors – among others – for decades.
What you may not know about us:
This month, T-Mar completed and delivered the first new grapple yarder to be built in Canada in 14 years to a logging industry client. The yarder was entirely designed in-house at T-Mar, with their engineering department producing detailed drawings, and machinists, welders, mechanics and millwrights on site bringing it to life. It is an innovative design that increases power, reduces fuel consumption and can be moved on roads unlike equipment of its kind built in the past.
T-Mar is supporting the John Hart project by providing mechanical services for rock drills and other equipment used in the excavation of the two portal entrances. With full mechanical, machining and fabrication capabilities and a large local facility, their involvement will be able to grow as the project progresses.
There are roughly 50 people working at T-Mar industries. Currently one or two people are dedicated to John Hart project-related work each week.
What makes Campbell River a great place to live and work:
Campbell River is a natural hub for a range of industrial activity on the south coast – from Courtenay north to Powell River and the Sunshine Coast. With easy access to water, highways, experienced workers and progressive industries, it’s the perfect location for an expert machining and services shop.
“Being involved in the John Hart project means sustainability and employment. It’s not so much for us – it’s for our employees. Keeping people employed makes a healthy community and having a project like this keeps the train going.”
