IMM Enters into its 65th Anniversary

IMM has officially entered into its 65th Anniversary year! Wow, where has the time gone?

While our 65th Anniversary year started off on unknown territory due to COVID-19, we are going to focus on the many tremendous years we have had so far. 

Industrial Machine & Mfg. Inc. was incorporated on June 1st, 1956. The former owner of IMM (from 1956-1976) was a machinist by trade. When Industrial Machine & Mfg. Inc. came up for sale in 1976, Perry Foster purchased it. Industrial Machine and Manufacturing – known as IMM – was the largest machine shop of its kind in the province. It had 25 employees and could put 200 hours a day on a project in a 20,000 square foot facility. IMM supplied many of the potash mines and other light industrial clients in the province. 

Over the years, IMM had saw a few changes and in 1997, the business was sold once again, in the family to Tom Foster who currently owns the company today.

IMM has changed drastically since its days as a 25-person shop. It now has 104 employees and has diversified, regularly shipping products to the Middle East, Europe, and the Asia-Pacific region. The company operates 60,000 square feet of facilities, and recently purchased an 80,000 square foot building and is planning its move into this new facility.

IMM have recently become signatories of the Indigenous Engagement Charter, they are an equal opportunity employer, and they stand for diversity and inclusivity. They are a multi-award winning company and are continuously striving towards their safety, quality and productivity standards.

So what's in the future for IMM? Increased growth, increased diversity and inclusivity, and continuous increased measures towards our safety, quality and productivity standards.
