About Dave


Dave has a long history in the industrial electrical equipment field. Early on he worked as an apprentice electrician for a drilling contractor and this hands on experience has served him well throughout in his career. After spending 14 years with Babco/Toshi selling electric motors, switchgear and VFD'S Dave eventually made a move to become more involved with management. In 1986 he started and managed a successful branch office for what was then called Crossman Machinery Co. LTD, a Vancouver based supplier of power transmission products and electric motors. This eventually led to the ownership and name change for Crossman Automation Inc. with a renewed commitment to providing outstanding customer support.
