Meet The Team

Dave McKinnon


Dave’s roots go back to the mid 80’s when he joined one of the oldest custom metal finishing companies in Western Canada. Tasked with managing their single powder coating line, he quickly grew it into a state of the art production facility that occupied a 28,000 square foot plant. With his industry experience and connections in the finishing industry, he brings invaluable experience and knowledge to Aegis Industrial Finishing Ltd. When planning Aegis, his prior experience and contacts proved invaluable in ensuring the layout and flow of our plant would best serve our customers.

When Dave is not walking the floor to greet the employees and see what new and exciting products are moving through the plant, he can be found outside of the shop visiting with our established customer base and reaching out to potential clients who could benefit from the services that Aegis provides.
