Core Services

We do a lot more than design and build custom, large-scale solutions for industry – we work closely with our customers and provide “above and beyond” services that allow us to deliver projects on time, on budget and on spec, at a fair and competitive price. These services include:

  • Fabrication
  • Machining
  • Manufacturing
  • Project planning and costing

24/7 customer care

Our support team is available around the clock to help you solve problems, or – better yet – prevent them in the first place.

Promac has a great reputation. I have dealt with them for quite a few years and I found that they have been very good to work with. They are fair with their pricing and they deliver on time and on budget. The follow up service has also been very good.

Collaborative process

Why we’re the ultimate OEIM

Everyone is familiar with OEMs but Promac is really more of an OEIM — or Original Equipment Improvement Manufacturer. We take great pride in taking things apart and improving on the original design of almost anything from thumb-sized screws to massive logging booms. We reverse engineer equipment when drawings are no longer available and then work closely with client, engineering and fabrication team to produce something that is often a huge improvement over the original.

Customer care

You’ll work closely with our team

Our engineers and designers don’t just work for our clients – they work closely with them to ensure that we provide the best possible solution, whether it’s a repair, a re-design, a custom build or a process improvement. From start to finish, our customers help ensure that new parts and equipment are designed functionally, built efficiently and, once installed, used properly. This exceptional ability to engineer customized solutions contributes to the strong, long-lasting relationships we have with our customers.

Technology innovation

We’re building a world-class group

We’re extremely proud of our diverse, highly skilled team, which includes innovative engineers and designers constantly focused how to make our products better and build them faster. We’ve committed to investing in cutting-edge technology – for example, we’re the first in the industry to use 3D scanning to create sawmill and pulp mill parts. We’re the only company that can design, engineer, machine and fabricate virtually anything in-house, providing a complete range of services to all our customers.

Catalyst Paper | Powell River

Re-imagined and re-built rotary feeder

The Promac Engineering recently worked with Catalyst team at the Powell River Mill to redesign and rebuild a critical rotary feeder. In the process of re-machining the part back to new, our team reverse engineered the plans, noting and fixing several design flaws that were accelerating the wear. The end result is a better rotary feeder that worked right the first time and will last significantly longer.
