About Tiger Machining Inc.

Your trusted partner for precision solutions and unwavering commitment to excellence.

Our History

A Legacy of Growth: From Joe to Grozdanic Family Ownership!

In 1990, Joe's Engine & Compressor Maintenance Inc. was established, providing parts and service to the natural gas industry. Starting with one service truck and an apprentice on his acreage-based shop, owner Joe Basse expanded the offerings with the addition of Tiger Machining in 1995, complementing the mechanical services.

On June 1st, 2004, Joe's Engine & Compressor Maintenance Inc. merged with Tiger Machining Inc., forming a streamlined single company. As of December 31, 2009, the company solely operates as Tiger Machining Inc.

In 2022, Tiger Machining witnessed a significant milestone as ownership transitioned to the Grozdanic family. Abaz Grozdanic, who started as an employee two decades ago, took the reins and decided to carry forward the business legacy from Joe Basse. Since its establishment, Tiger Machining has evolved into a powerhouse, boasting a dedicated team of 18 professionals and two field machining trucks operating from our Sherwood Park location. Occupying 27,000 sq. feet of cutting-edge facilities, we continue to thrive, efficiently cleaning, inspecting, and rebuilding reciprocating compressors and accessories to meet OEM standards. Our commitment to precision and excellence remains unwavering as we usher in a new era under the Grozdanic family's leadership.
