2019 marked the 65th anniversary of Thiessen Team & we are proud of our history.
Thiessen Equipment Ltd. was founded in 1954 by Abe J. Thiessen in B.C. Canada.
Like all new businesses the first years were difficult. The product range was small, consisting of grinding wheels and wire rope for the underground mines. Abe slept in his car when traveling and I recall he spoke with fondness towards a mining industry that even offered to pay in advance for products so he could have the cash to buy & supply them.
Abe developed and successfully patented the 'T-Dome' rock bolt that became the preferred roof support bolt for many years.
In the mid sixty's the company moved out of the family home into its Glen Drive location and hired its first employee.
For over sixty years the company grew. Customer service has and remains a keystone to its success.
The company had many milestones over the past sixty years as it followed its customers to many global locations.
What began as a small business in its founder's home grew to eight locations around the world employing 350 team members worldwide.
Looking ahead, we continue to listen to the needs of our customers through our talented and dedicated Team members, and ready to be of service to the mining industry from Langley, Elko and Big Timber for many years to come.
