Dura-Tech started in an 800 square foot building on Woodlawn road in Dartmouth in July of 1986. Both original partners Lee Johnson and Fred Kennedy are today as much an integral part of day to day operations as in the early days. Within the first year we were happy to welcome Steve Crosby on board. Steve has since established himself as our senior site supervisor. Our main sources of work during the first five years were light manufacturing, repairs of fiberglass products, boat building and boat repairs.
In 1991 Dura-Tech moved operations to a 2500 square foot facility in Burnside Industrial Park where we could expand our capabilities. There, we concentrated on custom manufacturing of tanks and marine specialty fiberglass products.
In 1995 we moved to our current location on Ross Road in Dartmouth. This 5000 square foot building has allowed us to expand our equipment and manufacturing capabilities. Our present production equipment includes a Binks Spray Booth, as well as Magnum Chopper and Gelcoat guns, and a complete woodworking section for Mould making.
In 2004 we began to concentrate efforts on expanding our aquaculture and chemical tank manufacturing operations, we have since acquired and produced a full inventory of production moulds. This expansion has allowed us to provide our products to customers throughout Canada and the United States.
We are continually improving and maintaining our systems so that we can better serve our customers, some of whom have been with us for over 20 years.
Whether you require an on-site repair or you are interested in having a fiberglass product made to suit, we have both the experience and equipment to provide top quality expert service.
