Rinaldi Welding opened in 1981 and moved to its current location in the Frank Industrial Park in the early 1990s. As their business grew, so did the size of their customer base and by 2010 they had outgrown their original building.
Community Futures Crowsnest Pass was ready to help when Rinaldi Welding built an addition which doubled the size of their operation. The expanded building allowed them to take on more work with bigger jobs and diversification into servicing the mining industry. With the extra space, they now build off-road service trucks, mechanic trucks and pump-floats.
More work also meant the company needed to hire more employees and they soon doubled their number of employees. Increasing their operation led to an increased profile and Rinaldi’s is now exporting mining products across Canada and into the U.S. Randy saw the opportunities for his business and says Community Futures was very helpful in supporting his vision.
“Through the expansion, our name got out more and we now service communities from the Arctic to Newfoundland and south into the U.S.,” says Randy.
With over 35 years, Rinaldi Welding is going strong and proud to be part of the Crowsnest Pass community, providing service across the nation.
