Moving Clients Forward Since 1946
Returning from WWII, Fred Rollins recognized a void in construction and logging equipment, and he decided to do something about it. With little capital, loads of enthusiasm and a young, supportive family, he set out to establish what quickly became a staple in the logging, mining and road-building industries in BC.
With hard work and dedication, many milestones were achieved.
1947 — Rollins Machinery establishes a one-room office near Granville Island, distributing manufacturer lines that include: Insley, H&L, Ingersoll Rand, Austin Western Graders and Baldwin Lima Cranes.
