Introducing TM Industries Ltd.
Recently the Piper had the pleasure
of talking with Mike Mruk, the owner
of TM Industries Ltd., one of Almita’s
Located near Spruce Grove, Alberta,
TM has been business for almost
20 years. It all started with Mike
working for his stepfather who
owned a modular home factory. He
started working there while he was
still in school, then went full time.
He worked in every department
and eventually became a foreman
responsible for 20 to 25 guys. After
about five years he wanted to have
his own business. He found a partner
and they started setting up mobile
homes in Alberta, Saskatchewan,
Manitoba, and BC. Their first job was
in Pukatawagan, Manitoba where
they set up about 25 homes. Initially
he installed houses on blocks, then
he moved to screw piles. After about
two years, Mike bought out his
partner and landed a contract in Fort
McMurray for 700 homes. They put
close to 18,000 piles in the ground
over three years.
It was when Mike was in Fort
McMurray that he met Adrien
Trudeau, the owner of Almita at that
time. It wasn’t long before Adrien
had Mike convinced to go with Almita.
Today 90 to 95% of TM’s business is
modular and mobile homes, mainly
in Alberta, and Almita is their main
supplier of screw piles. TM also uses
Almita’s engineering services.
Mike operates the business with
his wife Ranedda who runs the
office. The bulk of their work is in
the summer months and he hires
additional staff as required. Mike is
very proud of his CWB certification
(Canadian Welding Bureau) and
feels it sets him apart from other
In December 2014, TM was Parkland

OF THE MONTH -
Parkland County is pleased to announce that
T.M. Industries Ltd., located in Division 1
of Parkland County is December’s Featured
Business of the Month.
T.M. Industries Ltd., in operation since 1997,
offers steel piling installation services primarily
for mobile home foundations, decks, sidewalks
and out buildings.
Mike and Ranedda Mruk who are both
longtime residents of Parkland County, started
T.M. Industries after recognizing the need for
a more permanent type of foundation that was
different from the typical wood blocking. This
proved to be a successful business decision made
by Mike and Ranedda as most mobile homes
are now placed on steel piling foundations.
Our congratulations go out to T.M. Industries
Ltd., for being one of Parkland County’s great
businesses and this month’s feature business.
