DFI Our History Dave Freeland Pick-Up Truck

50 Years & Counting Of Growth, Innovation & Family

DFI began as Dave Freeland Transport Ltd., a one truck oilfield transportation company, in 1969. Over the next 20 years, his business hauled oilfield materials and equipment throughout Western Canada and the Northwest Territories.

As Dave’s experience grew, he transformed the company’s focus to piling, and in 1989 we became DFI (Dave Freeland Industries). Since, DFI has evolved into – your one-stop steel piling source – largely due to building the only exclusive steel piling pipe mill in North America, and inventing a line of proprietary purpose-built piling equipment.

Over the years, we’ve grown from a small one-truck operation to a multi-national company with offices across Canada, the United States and Australia.

From day one, our focus was on delivering responsive, innovative, and reliable service wherever our customers needed us. This remains as true to us today as it was in 1969.
