Tracing Back: A Century of Commitment

In 1919, a passion for precision led Herb Elfstrom, Sr. and Francis Smith to found Ideal Gear & Machine Works. Initially powering fishing vessels and steam tugboats, our scope expanded, adapting to the demands of a world at war. Over decades, as leadership evolved and embraced innovative visions, so did our commitment to quality. Today, nestled by the Fraser River, our 25,000 sq ft facility stands as a testament to a legacy built on reliability, innovation, and unparalleled craftsmanship.
