TS Manufacturing

Lindsay's TS Manufacturing began in 1973 when Ted Smith's older brother Tom wanted to strike out on his own and use their combined talents and energy to build their own manufacturing plant to build equipment for the burgeoning forestry industry in Ontario.
Today, the company boasts a 65,000-square-foot facility in Lindsay, and a workforce of approximately 75 to 80 highly-skilled employees, offering a startling array of equipment and machinery for every significant aspect of the lumber industry - exporting more than three quarters of their production to the United States and even further afield.
