Friday 21 Jun 2024

DC Equipment has announced the opening of its new manufacturing facility in Prince George, marking the return of Madill equipment production to British Columbia.

The first machines to be produced at this facility will be the Madill 3000B Log Loaders, heralding a new chapter in Madill’s rich history and strong heritage in BC.

“We are excited to bring Madill manufacturing back to its roots in British Columbia,” said Dale Ewers, Owner and Managing Director of DC Equipment. “This is more than just a strategic move for us; it’s about preserving and continuing the legacy of Madill, which has been a cornerstone of the logging industry for over a century.”

Economic Impact

The establishment of the new facility in Prince George is set to have a significant positive impact on the local economy, creating numerous employment opportunities and fostering job growth within the community. “Our commitment to local manufacturing is also a commitment to the local economy,” Ewers emphasised. “We are creating jobs in which we hope contribute to the economic development of the region. It’s a win-win for everyone involved.”

A Strategic Move for Global Markets

DC Equipment’s expansion into British Columbia is part of a broader strategic initiative to enable manufacturing at a local level whilst catering for global demand. DC Equipment now have facilities in South America, North America, and Oceania which ensures that the company can meet the growing demand for high-quality logging equipment worldwide while maintaining strong production capabilities at home.

“This new facility positions us perfectly to serve our global markets more efficiently,” noted Ewers. “By manufacturing locally, we can ensure faster delivery times and maintain the high standards of quality and innovation that our customers expect from Madill and DC Equipment.”
