About Us

Who we are

Locally owned and operated in Thunder Bay, Central Canada Equipment opened its doors over 45 years ago as a Tree Farmer Equipment dealership. A group of Vulcan Equipment Managers along with Shuniah Forest Products started the business in 1978.

 In 1991 Central Canada Industries Inc. was formed taking on some of the main product lines held by the former equipment dealership. Its core products included hydraulic hose and couplings, lifting and rigging, traction chain, pneumatics, fleet oil and greases.

In 1993 they opened their first auto parts stores, selling aftermarket auto parts. Since then, the Group of Companies expanded and now have 17 branches in 15 locations from Thunder Bay, Ontario to Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.

Central Canada Industries Inc. now operates under Unlimited Parts (Winnipeg, MB), Central Canada Lubricants and Truck and Diesel Hydraulics. Its sister company Auto Parts Central operates in 12 locations from Thunder Bay to Moose Jaw.

Central Canada Industries built its business in forestry and the pulp mill industry. Today it works in the mining and construction industry as well.

The key to its strength is the customer service it provides to all industries with staff that have a wealth of knowledge in the business and providing a broad range of products and services.
