CIMS Celebrating 30 Years

CIMS LP is proud to announce their 30th anniversary. We are excited to be celebrating three decades of service to our industrial and commercial customers throughout North America. 


 Since 1991, CIMS has consistently achieved the highest standards of safety, quality, and service for our customers. In an industry where cost and schedule over-runs are common, we deliver customer value by safely completing projects on time and on budget. Since our beginnings in the pulp and paper industry, we have diversified into construction and maintenance in oil and gaspulp and papermining and smeltingpower generation, and chemical sectors.

CEO, John McLaughlin joined the company in 1994 and as a journeyman boilermaker himself, John was keen to create and grow a dynamic company that would provide excellent employment for himself and his colleagues. The first long-term contract was won when John learned that there was an emergency at a local work site and CIMS showed up on location, ready to work.

“I am proud to be part of the growth and success of CIMS, we did this together!” said John McLaughlin.

That determination and willingness has helped grow CIMS to multiple locations across Canada, with over 1600+ employees, serving a wide variety of customers. Our success is built on the long-term relationships we have maintained with our customers and the repeat business that results.

“We have built a strong, financially sound company, that truly partners with our customers, and we all look forward to the next 30 years,” said Herb Gill, President.

We know what differentiates CIMS is our people. Our reputation and values have given us the ability to attract and retain a team with industrial construction experience and knowledge that cannot be replicated and provides our customers with the peace of mind that their equipment will be maintained or built safely and done right the first time.

COO, Patrick McGinley said, “We are so proud of all of our people at CIMS, those with tools in their hands on day one and each and every one who has joined us over the 30-year journey that brings us to today. Thank you so much.”
