TS Sawmill & Lumber Handling
Ev & Ted Smith operate TS Manufacturing from the Lindsay, Ontario main office.

TS Manufacturing is proud to be a family owned & operated manufacturer devoted to the global supply of custom manufactured, quality equipment.

Company Vision
Over 50 years ago, it started with a vision.
The goal was to create a dynamic 'one-stop shop' manufacturer of quality equipment for the forest products industry. Starting small, Ted opened his first manufacturing center in Lindsay, Ontario, Canada in 1972. Finding the market for log, lumber and residual material handling to be more than the small facility could handle, he purchased an adjoining building in 1976.

As the list of satisfied customers grew, so did their need for more manufacturing space. In 1988 they completed the construction of their current location. Remaining in Lindsay, Ontario they built the plant with over 50,000 sq. ft. of fabrication space. This purpose-built facility was exactly what they needed to properly service their customers. In 2002, with an ever expanding product and customer list, it was time to grow again, adding over 15,000 sq. ft. of additional production space to the plant. Now sitting with over 65,000 sq. ft. of production capacity, TS Manufacturing had the space, product mix and experience to handle nearly any project.

Company Expansion
Throughout the expansion of the facility, TS was also busy expanding the number of industries it served.
Being located in a prime mining and aggregate area, (Ontario), the combination of location and experience made it an ideal industry to serve. Additionally, the experience in wood residue handling allowed TS to provide skilled services in the co-generation, biomass, pulp & paper and boardplant industries. The proximity of Lindsay to the 'manufacturing heartland' of Ontario - the Greater Toronto Area - put the precise and expert services of its engineering and fabrication departments in high demand.

With the growth, expansion and three sons active in the business, Ted and Ev Smith purchased the remaining shares to make it a truly family operation. Combining the active involvement of family with the commitment to detail and quality that TS is known for, the company looks forward to new global challenges and opportunities.

TS Acquires Automation & Electronics (NZ / USA)
TS Manufacturing of Ontario, Canada is pleased to announce that it has completed acquisition of majority shares in Automation & Electronics (NZ) Ltd. and its subsidiaries.

In March, 2019, TS Manufacturing completed acquisition of majority shares in Automation & Electronics (NZ) Ltd. and its subsidiaries. This acquisition strengthened the TS Controls division in North America and provides greater amalgamated support, worldwide, for the existing installed base of TS and A&E customers.

The existing A&E management teams in NZ and NC, USA remained intact. TS was pleased to announce that Brian Smith and Windsor Technology NZ remain co-shareholders, ensuring stable and consistent leadership and direction for A&E, consistent with its proven 30+ year track record. The acquisition created a deep team of over 16 PLC and software support staff, operating natively from 3 time zones. All companies remain committed to providing exceptional automation services.

Riley Smith, Sales Manager for TS Manufacturing said “This acquisition is more like a combining of like-minded professionals all dedicated to the wood products industry. It is our intent for existing vendor and customer relationships to remain unchanged with the three companies. Existing customers will now receive enhanced worldwide support from a diverse range of time zones and offices. Each company will mutually benefit from the broad and varying experience of the other two, and customers will get the most expedient and capable solutions in the wood products industry.”
