Our History

Before True North, founders Blair Hanel, Darren Sharpe and Gordon Gibson formed the core of an in-house automation team for a multinational oil and gas exploration company. During this period they sought different methods of streamlining projects and lowering costs. They became adept at evaluating automation from an end user's perspective. They continually developed solutions that were better than the last.

True North Automation is based on the idea of employing the best minds in the field who consistently deliver nothing short of excellence. This dedication to clients and staff alike has resulted in lengthy and successful business relationships with major western Canadian oil and gas producers. Fueled by the momentum of its vendor-neutral, people-focused model, True North is poised to double in size.
