Some more about us
Brandell Diesel started from humble beginnings as a small 3-man shop in 2013. BDI has experienced rapid growth with a reputation as being one of Calgary’s Premier Diesel specialists.
We expanded our services along the way with divisions in Hydraulic equipment and specialized tuning. What is the secret to our success? We stand firmly behind our motto, “Common sense service.” Our team of 25 always strives for perfect execution and we pride ourselves in supplying only the highest quality products.
At BDI, we think a little differently than most. We believe the most important thing in our business is our team. Without it, you will not have the best customers. Our team always strives to be the best they can and deliver for the customer.
We not only fix it when it breaks, but we also find solutions to prevent costly downtime. BDI understands the demanding industries and will keep your equipment working for you.
