Our History

historyOver 40 Years ago...

Bell-Camp Manufacturing was originally founded in 1962 by Stan Campbell who named the company Bell-Camp by reversing his name. The company's core business at that time was grain and feed handling equipment. The fabricating division was established in a 7,000 sq ft building on Clarke Road, just east of Hwy 19 in Ingersoll, Ontario.

Mr. Campbell passed away in 1967, and in 1973 the company was purchased by Peter Slykerman, and three other partners. Over the next 8 to 12 years these gentleman left to pursue other interests, leaving Peter as the sole owner of Bell-Camp.

The grain and feed handling business continued to be active, and a farm equipment line was added. All this was gradually phased out as demand for fabricating for the local limestone and cement plants increased. This opened the door for other opportunities to supply steel fabrications to the automotive, aggregate, power generation, steel production and other related industries. These activities continue to the present day.

We're Growing...

The facility is still located on Clarke Road, but has grown considerably. In 2002 we added a modern paint and sandblasting facility. Our latest 7,000 sq ft addition of production space was completed in August of 2007, and brings our total production space to over 40,000 sq ft.

Our Future Looks Bright!

On August 1, 2008 Bell-Camp's ownership was transferred over to Brad Stubbe, allowing Peter to spend more time with his family as he eases into retirement. We are grateful that Peter will continue to play an important role as advisor and mentor at Bell-Camp for many more years to come. Brad will continue in Peter's footsteps to ensure that the company continues to grow and prosper today and into the future.

It's an exciting time at Bell-Camp as we hit our stride at 40+ years, and continue to keep growing!
