When Les Ellery moved to Canada in 1970 he already had a solid background in machining including years of training, machining and management experience with large multi-national firms such as Tata and British Steel. His career had taken him to India, England and Germany where his machining skills, problem solving abilities and work ethic helped him to advance quickly.

When Les moved his young family to Canada his plan was to continue building his career in manufacturing but the opportunities to do so weren't what he was hoping for. His skills made it easy to find work but he found himself too often at the mercy of layoffs and the wages he earned weren't enough to give his family the opportunities he wanted for them. Eventually Les decided that the only way to get ahead would be to work for himself so together with his wife (Patience), they scraped together what they could and took a chance on
building their own future.

When Les Ellery started Ellery Machining in 1978 his only goals were to generate a steady income and to provide for his family. The original shop occupied a small corner of a warehouse in Cloverdale, British Columbia. Les had a drill press, a manual lathe and alot of faith that things would work out.

Today the company goes by the name Ellery "Manufacturing" with its production facility (20,000 Square Feet) and offices located in the Port Kells industrial area of Surrey, British Columbia. The business employs 25 fulltime employees including Les' sons (Paul, Dave & Nick), his eldest daughter (Anne) and one of his many grandchildren (Spencer).

The company's current focus is on providing custom machining, fabrication and project management services for major industrial customers and leading edge engineering firms. Ellery Manufacturing is proud to produce high quality work for a wide variety of industries including oil and gas, liquid natural gas, energy (wind, solar and hydro), mining, forestry, construction, marine, defense & aerospace.

At the age of 86 Les still came to work a couple times each week to visit. He passed away in March 2018, just a few days before the 40th anniversay of the company he loved. The Ellery family is extremely proud of what Les and Patience built and they continue to grow their legacy with Paul Ellery now managing day to day operations.

Ellery Manufacturing is pleased to be celebrating its 40th year in business and is proud to be a long time active member of the Canadian industrial community.
