World-class design and manufacture of marine equipment
Hawboldt Industries was founded in 1906 to support the Atlantic fishery with new power equipment during the time when ships were converting from sails to engines. While the company has maintained its roots in the fishing industry, we have developed into a world-class manufacturer and exporter of engineered marine equipment for specialized line-handling and lifting applications.
The company is based in Chester, Nova Scotia, Canada, south-west of the city of Halifax. Our facility is adjacent to Highway 103, connecting the shipbuilding areas of Nova Scotia’s south shore, and providing quick access to Halifax International Airport as well as the two international container terminals in the port of Halifax.
Hawboldt employs a highly qualified and diverse staff including certified trades personnel, project managers and a well-equipped team of professional engineers specialized in mechanical and hydraulic design.
In addition to research and development, our engineering department designs products and systems to meet specific operational requirements. These design requirements range from a single piece of equipment to an entire shipset integrating deck equipment and hydraulic systems.
Since 2005, Hawboldt Industries has been a company within the Timberland Group. Along with other Timberland companies, our vision is to continue exceeding our customers’ expectations as we provide quality engineered product solutions.
