Serving with Efficiency

Northern Mat & Bridge is one of the largest access providers in Canada, with thousands of bridges and access mats in our inventory. Numerous product lines and individual pieces of equipment with different lifespans all have to be managed in an efficient way.

As a part of our quality guarantee, we utilize sophisticated online tracking systems that manages our entire product portfolio. This tells us where equipment is currently, where it has been and helps us plan where it will go next.

For our customers, this means we can quickly develop project packages and source all the required products. We can get operations moving quickly by coordinating all the materials and organizing transportation through our digital systems.

Making Products That Matter

Our customers care about access products that are long lasting and easy to implement. That way their operations get started faster and progress without interruption.

To enable this peace of mind, we manufacture all of our mats and bridges. We know the best path to quality is to control the process. All products are built to our stringent standards, inspected thoroughly and tested to ensure reliable use every time. By manufacturing our matting products in house, we can guarantee matting supply.

Access Mat and Portable Bridge Manufacturing 

Renewable Products

The timber used to manufacture our mats comes from the renewable forests of North America. Wood is purchased only from companies committed to replenishing trees: Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®), Sustainable Forestry Initiative Inc. (SFI®), and/or PEFC: The Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification (PEFC). We understand the importance of protecting our natural environment, and we’re committed to supporting organizations and process that ensure sustainable production.


Lasting Quality

A reputation for quality is not easily gained, but it can be easily lost. So we build each piece of equipment with extra considerations to integrity. Bolted mats with extra ply for a rigid hold, bridges that have less parts for easier maintenance and lasting strength. These are extra costs to us that deliver greater certainty to our products, and power our reputation for exceptional quality. Due to our vertical integration, we control the raw materials that go into our matting products. This ensures the highest-quality standard in the industry today.


Certified Systems

Confidence also comes through achievement. Northern Mat & Bridge runs a manufacturing process that exceeds national safety and quality standards, knowing that approved performance matters. Our design, welding and manufacturing processes conform to CSA specifications. We want our customers to feel  assured that our mats and bridges are a safe, long-lasting investment.


Custom Capable

Not every product is suitable right out of the box. Sometimes you need something custom, something designed specific to unique requirements. This could be an oversized bridge, extra-capacity mat or other systems to support operations.

By having our own manufacturing facilities, we can work with customers that require custom made mats and bridges. We often encounter projects with unique machinery or access needs, and we have the capability to meet those needs specifically.
