A millwright for 33 years, Dave completed his four year trades apprenticeship as a millwright and machinist. As a certified trades professional, he began his career in coal-fired power stations, pulp and paper mills and petro-chemical plants. Early on, Dave had the opportunity to work on the first ever LNG plan to be built in Australia in 1988.
In 1990 he relocated to Canada and worked as a machinist in the ship-building industry and then transitioned to forestry.
Mining, the extraction of valuable minerals or other geological materials from the earth, often requires moving large mining equipment and machinery onto site to effectively and effficiently do the job.
Heating, ventilation and air conditioning are major factors when it comes to residential, commercial, and industrial construction and maintenance. HVAC units help to stabilize the heating and cooling temperature in a building. This in turn allows companies to create positive and productive working environments.
Electrical systems are a complex combination of wiring, breaker boxes, switches and other machinery. Electrical contractors are responsible for the installation and maintenance of these systems. These systems can have electrical equipment that is big, awkward and difficult to transport.
Commercial construction is one of the most dynamic construction sectors we service today. With the variety of building layouts and unique machinery to install, we consistently run into dynamic project requirements.
With commercial construction comes all sorts of equipment installation: from refrigeration units, to HVAC units, to ovens, each item requires special knowledge and industrial moving tools to safely and properly place them.
Oil and gas companies are an integral part of the Canadian economy. Today, the oil and gas sector is typically located in remote areas. In order to save on production costs, many major companies build large portions of their equipment off-site. They then transport necessary equipment in large sections to install onsite.
There are times when large marine vessels must be moved to dry dock, whether for hull construction or hull repair. The shape and the weight of most vessels make it difficult to move on dry land.
Apex & Pro-Tech can help! Our experience in moving 2,000 ton ferry hulls out of dry dock and into the water, as well as removing and placing large vessels on to dry dock, makes us an invaluable team to work with in the marine industry.
We rise to the occasion. Call us today for a quote for your project.
