ITB Impact Stories

Dumur Industries

Dumur Industries of White City, Saskatchewan shows how the Industrial and Technological Benefits (ITB) Policy can help small businesses grow in the defence sector. In 1987, Dumur began as a sheet metal firm, making ventilation and cabinet systems for the food preparation sector. These days, supplying parts, vehicle components, and systems for the defence sector forms the majority of its business.

Lately, Dumur has been manufacturing 150 armoured protection systems for the new Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) Kerax vehicles. These systems are part of a contract awarded to Mack Defense in 2015 for the Medium Support Vehicle System (MSVS) Project.

This is not the first time Dumur has leveraged the ITB Policy and the former Industrial and Regional Benefits (IRB) Policy to work with defence contractors. Dumur also makes refueller and water pods for Daimler AG's Armoured Heavy Support Vehicle System (AHSVS). In addition, it has built 1100 parts for General Dynamics Land Systems-Canada’s various Light Armoured Vehicle (LAV) systems.

Through its ongoing success, Dumur has expanded multiple times. It now employs 130 people and exports to over a dozen countries. In June 2018, Dumur acquired Dellcom Aerospace Inc. of Concord, Ontario, which specializes in making small to mid-sized airframe components and engineering services.
