We're very proud of all the hard-working employees at Timberland Supply that have helped make us the #1-rated outdoor power equipment store in Alberta.
Our mechanics are highly trained and have years of experience working in the power equipment industry. There aren't too many problems that they haven't seen, and that means that your equipment will be repaired faster, saving you time and money.
Also, at Timberland all our sales staff are non-commissioned. You can shop at our store with complete confidence knowing that the recommendations that we offer, are based strictly on providing you with the best products and solutions to meet your particular needs and wants.
Below you'll find short bios and pictures of all Timberland Supply staff members to help you get to know us better.
