Why Collingwood?

We are headquartered in Collingwood, Ontario, where we have been innovating underground mining equipment solutions for over 40 years. As we continue to expand our product range and geographic footprint, we remain privately owned and consistently focused on the Company founder’s original engineered design imperatives – safety, productivity and enduring quality – and on his homeground.

The company  also has facilities in Barrie and Owen Sound, along with branch offices across Canada as well as in Mexico, Peru, Chile, South Africa and Australia.

MacLean sells its products and support services into 23 countries on six continents. They have been innovating underground mining equipment solutions for over 40 years and as they continue to expand their product range and geographic footprint, they remain proud of their Collingwood roots and future.

The company’s parade entry is part of the MacLean Mine-Mate line of utility vehicles –  a Scissor Lift – an underground multi-tasker used for the installation of a range of underground services.

Looking to the Future

We are in the process of writing the next chapters of the MacLean story, taking our hard rock expertise and custom-build approach to the fields of municipal infrastructure maintenance, hazardous materials recycling, construction, and contract manufacturing.  Our diverse and experienced engineering teams, working hand-in-hand with our international sales and product management teams, utilize leading-edge technologies to design equipment solutions that are purpose-built for the most challenging environments.

We mine solutions.
