We Are Proud to offer Top Quality Drill Bits and Excellent Service!

Mike Hunter established Macbernal Recycling Systems Ltd. in 1979.   His father, Bernie Hunter, who is the Senior Sales Representative, has been involved in the oil industry for the past 50 years and has brought extensive experience and knowledge to the business. 

Mike's sister Karen, the office manager, has been actively employed with Macbernal for the past 7 years.  The staff also includes 4 sales agents, 2 shop assistants and a receptionist. Macbernal also has 5 stock point agents who also assist with sales.

Initially operated  basically out of a garage, in 1983 Macbernal moved into a shop in Leduc, Alberta to accommodate more inventory.  In order to serve customers better in 1985 he moved the business to Nisku, Alberta to a building with again more space.  Due to the rapid growth of this once small business, in 1998, Mike built a spacious building in the heart of Nisku which can properly accommodate the inventory and staff.  The rest as they say is history as Macbernal continues to grow at a comfortable rate and we are proud to offer top quality drill bits and excellent service!
