Who is a proud family-owned Canadian manufacturer and service centre of public safety/utility vehicles located in Vars, Ontario?  Battleshield Industries Limited!  Luc Thibault founded Battleshield in 2012 as a specialized parts, mobile service, and equipment supplier and refurbisher of fire apparatus.  As a firefighter himself and as the company president, Luc knows you depend on your equipment to save lives!  That is why you can depend on Battleshield for all your new and used equipment, truck repairs, custom projects, and annual pump testing.

In 2016, due to a high demand from our loyal clients, we began designing and building our own line of fire trucks and rescue units.  The following year, we expanded into upfitting enforcement vehicles with such items as weapon mounts, keyboard mounts, rollout trays, K9 cages to name a few.

In 2020, Battleshield invested in high technology machinery which gave us the opportunity to form metal in-house using a CNC laser cutting machine and CNC press brake.  This new equipment allows us to build our own fire truck bodies as well as supply hospitals with sanitary mounts, pick-up truck enclosed metal boxes, etc.  We are also open to the public.

As a result of our rapid growth, we expanded to a second facility where a new division was created to better service the utility box industry. This division specializes in rescue body, hazmat body, water works, service body, law enforcement, command centres, etc.

We are a fast-growing company with 40 full-time employees and 3 locations.  The success of Battleshield is the results of key knowledge of the industries, strategic locations, a bilingual staff with years of experience in the field with the ability to offer a 24/7 service to Eastern Ontario, Western Québec, the Maritimes and now serving the USA.

Battleshield is always up to a new challenge to engineer any innovative product.
