Job Description

Abbotsford plant (3065 Sumas Mountain Road, Abbotsford, B.C., V3G 2L4) is seeking an individual to join our core shift maintenance team:



  • Overhaul/installation of mechanical and electrical equipment on a predictive/preventative and breakdown basis
  • Troubleshooting electrical and mechanical systems

  • Proficiency with burning and non-pressure welding is essential to be effective on your shift.

  • As we modernize our plant in stages (on-going), a greater proportion of the workload will focus on AC Vector drives, equipment laser alignment, trouble-shooting of PLC controlled mechanical equipment, etc.


  • The successful applicant will be a certified maintenance Millwright (preferred candidates will be dual-ticketed Electrician/Millwrights). 
  • This is a 12-hour shift role (7 shifts in a 2-week pay period, double time paid for hours in excess of 40 hours/week).   The wage rate for single trade journeymen is $33.13/hr. and we compensate dual-ticketed journeymen with an additional $2.00/hr. premium plus shift premiums ($0.45/hr.).  Note: the extra hours generated by 12-hour shifts result in an additional 10% income (approx.) compared to a standard 40-hour workweek. 

Apart from a non-contributory benefit package (B.C. M.S.P., dental, extended, life insurance, etc.), there is a non-contributory Group R.R.S.P. with 8.0% company funding.
