About Canadian Barge Builders

Having always been intrigued by tugboats and heavy equipment as a youngster, the marine construction industry was the perfect fit for me as a 15-year-old starting my first job. It was later in my career that I decided to take my love for marine construction a step further and start my own company. But what I quickly discovered was that it was nearly impossible to find a quality barge for sale in my price range. That's when I decided to put my welding skills to good use and build my own barge right here on Canadian soil. This generated interest and before I knew it, I was taking bulk orders.

After consulting with an engineer and marine architect, and then Transport Canada to navigate the legal requirements for Canadian Barge Builders, we began barge production full time. A few years later and we have over 400 barges floating around Canada. Canadian Barge Builders has positioned itself with a high-quality product but with very competitive pricing. As we scale upward and continue to hire skilled craftsmen, we hope to continue serving you as Canada’s #1 barge building company!
