History of the Owners and Staff
AISM is a locally owned and operated business located in Ft McMurray, AB. It is a family business owned by Dale and Barbara Connell. Their 2 sons David and Scott have been involved in the growth of the business since it opened in 2000. Dale managed the business for many years but is now semi-retired. Barbara is still running the office for now.

We used to be located on MacAlpine Cresent but chose to invest in some real estate of our own and moved to the new Kuusamo complex located on MacKenzie Blvd. David is now the operations manager and also fills the roll of estimator and runs the shop.

Scott has taken on a supervisory role of managing the jobs, making sure billing and paperwork is complete for each job and making sure the safety aspects of the job are being done and documented.

There are many projects we have done over the years. This is just some of the work we have done. Dale, David and Scott have won apprenticeship awards and passed their finals with top mark awards. Combined there is over 80 years of experience in the industry from fabrication, design and installation. We have competed an uncountable quantity of custom shop fabrication projects from ductwork, custom tools, SS hoods and counters to repairing of boats, engine blocks, transmission housing and much, much more.
