Quality Policy

West Fraser Electro/Mechanical Ltd. provides products and services which meet or exceed the customers’ specified requirements, the Company’s engineering standards, and, when required, the regulatory authorities.

To achieve the quality policy, it is the objective of West Fraser Electro/Mechanical Ltd. to establish and maintain an effective and efficient quality process, determine and monitor internal and external issues relevant to its quality policy, planned and developed in conjunction with other management functions and in conformance with the corporate objectives.


In 1986, an ambitious and talented Prince George engineer, Garry Toop, established West Fraser Electro/Mechanical Ltd. (WFEM) with a goal of providing top-quality technical services to organizations that rely on large rotational motors to keep their operations running. He earned a well-deserved reputation for reliability and quality work. West Fraser was the first EASA and ISO certified motor rebuild facility in the province of British Columbia. In 2001, a group of WFEM employees bought the company and expanded the service offerings and client range. 

West Fraser is now a leading provider of large motor sales and services throughout British Columbia and beyond.

Now, the company boasts more than 30 highly-skilled employees, clients from all major resource and production industries, a distribution partnership with global motor-manufacturing powerhouse, GE, and a commitment to continued excellence in training and customer service. West Fraser is poised to become North America’s company of choice in the electro-mechanical services industry.
