Message from the CEO

As we turn the page on what was another challenging year in 2021, Northern Mat & Bridge remains committed to continue to respect and uphold the same core values and principles we have held since our early days.  NMB has a long-held and well-earned reputation for its unwavering focus on health and safety, high-quality products, and best-in-class service.

From just a few team members in one province starting in 1999, our company has grown exponentially to include hundreds of dedicated professionals throughout Canada. We are extremely proud of where we have come from, where we are today and where we are going tomorrow.  Driven by a passion at all levels of our organization to service our customers’ needs in a safe, responsive, and reliable fashion, we are united in our mission to safely deliver the most cost-effective site access solutions. Our commitment to continuous improvement ensures we are embracing industry best practices, and we strongly believe in conducting business with the highest level of integrity and ethics.

The protection of the environment has always been a cornerstone of our business – its what our products are designed for. We continue our practice of environmental stewardship by working with wood suppliers that are actively engaged in re-forestation initiatives. Our primary wood suppliers are committed to sustainable forest management and re-forestation by planting three-and-a-half seedlings for every tree harvested. This practice will ensure the preservation of this renewable resource for generations to come.

Our practice of consultation and engagement with Indigenous Canadians has and will continue to produce meaningful business relationships for the mutual benefit of all.

Our goal continues to be simply the best at what we do.

We strive to supply premium products and create quality customer experiences in concert with being an employer of choice.   The safety, growth and development of our team members is a foundation of our business and the resulting success throughout our history is a testament to this.   Our future will be no different as we have created a culture of excellence, allowing us to attract and retain the very best industry professionals. Our employees are our greatest asset and our development of a challenging, yet supportive workplace facilitates our people to nurture and grow their talents. We welcome you to explore becoming a valued member of our team.

Thank you for visiting with us.
