“Necessity is the mother of invention!” A phrase that resonates with Redstone Truck and Marine, because with the management of a sizeable fishing fleet as well as large heavy equipment to repair, Abegweit First Nation was outsourcing all of its maintenance and repair work – until five years ago, that is!
In 2010, an existing building on Scotchfort Reserve was repurposed into a state-of-the-art boat, truck and auto repair facility to keep band owned machines and vessels in prime working condition. This is when Redstone Truck and Marine started supplying service, rather than buying it.
Since that time, our business and customer base has grown, providing employment, training and supply chain purchasing power, repositioning Redstone Truck & Marine as a significant contributor within the community and surrounding area. Most importantly, we are inspiring our youth and empowering our people.
