Mearl's Machine Works - Kelowna

One of our apprentices was hired on as a Machinist apprentice and was interested in the Millwright trade as well. We promised him once he earned his Machinist ticket that we would sign him up for Millwright. He's going to be dual ticketed before the age of 25 and has the whole future ahead of him.

We've been hearing about Mearl's and their successes in the apprenticeship system for a long time now. We were very happy to have the opportunity to visit them and chat with their owner, Mike Hall, who begun his career with the company as an apprentice at the age of 17.

Mearl's Machine Works has been locally owned and operated in Kelowna, BC since 1976. In addition to a large scale general machine shop, Mearl's offers full services in pumps, air compressors, drill rigs/supplies, bearings/power transmission products, fabrication/welding, and millwrighting services.
