We’re proud of what we do, and who we do it for.

Wood and Fibre

From the ground to our desks. Wood is one of the most versatile resources on our planet that can be transformed into many different uses. Ideal Gear’s experience has allowed us to assist with new product design from start to the finish.

This industry requires an immense amount of heavy lifting, movement, and transporting of materials. The machinery used can span from mobile cranes to conveyor belts. We pride ourselves on understanding the requirement of each one of these machines within the process. When it comes time for repair and maintenance, our keen eye will help you find new efficiencies that could have been previously missed.
