Brooks Industrial Metals Throughout The Years

Passed down and operated to the family’s 3rd generation today, we continue to grow as the business is one of Alberta’s most prominent one-stop metal distributors. 

Originated in 1966

Brooks Industrial Metals Ltd originated in 1966 by Joe Duenk. Of Dutch descent, Joe began as a single employee in his small radiator repair business. He also kept a steel scrap pile where he would buy and sell scrap metals within the community of Brooks.

Guided by Tradition, Driven by Innovation

Under the leadership of John Duenk and his son Justin, Brooks Industrial Metals has expanded its offerings, providing a range of services from metal distribution to custom fabrication solutions. Our approach combines traditional values with modern innovation, ensuring every project is handled professionally and carefully.

Fast forward to 2017, John’s son Justin joined the company full-time after getting his BBA in business management and supply chain management.
