About Us

A Decade-long Legacy

Founded in 1911 by Samuel Madill, Madill has stamped an iconic mark in history as a distinguished name in the forestry industry.

With a history that spans over a century, Madill's legacy of excellence and innovation has left an impact across many countries’ forestry operations.

Recently, this storied legacy entered a new phase as DC Equipment proudly acquired the brand from the Nicholson Group of British Columbia, where it had thrived for the past 12 years.


A Respected Heritage

Madill's story is one of evolution and perseverance, adapting through various ownership structures to maintain its position as a global leader in cable logging.

Synonymous with durable and reliable cable logging equipment across the world, particularly in North America, the Madill brand has showcased its reliability and performance to generations of loggers.

The brand's journey through diverse hands, from competing manufacturing giants to international investment groups, has only solidified its stature.


A Passionate Vision

Steering Madill's future with passion and innovation, Dale Ewers, founder of DC Equipment, sees a bright future with opportunity for the Madill brand. With a logging connection spanning four decades; experience, relationships and knowledge will provide the foundation for the next chapter of Madill.

Dale's vision aligns Madill's durability, performance, and longevity with DC Equipment's vision for continuous improvement and commitment to safety and productivity.


The Journey Ahead

Madill's journey under DC Equipment's guardianship promises to honor its rich heritage. The essence of Madill will remain intact, preserving its history, heritage, and the loyalty of its dedicated customer base.

While the core Madill products will continue to excel in steep slope terrain, Dale envisions synergies with DC Equipment's technological advancements to enrich the brand's offerings for a more integrated logging solution for contractors.
