    DMS recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies

    Dependable Mechanical Systems Inc. provides mechanical and electrical contracting services for the industrial, commercial and institutional (ICI) construction sectors in Ontario. Headquartered in Vaughan, the company operates from a state-of-the art 25,000-square-foot facility. In addition, the company has an Ontario East Regional office in Belleville, which services the Eastern region from Kingston to Ottawa.

    The company embraces a wide range of projects, including infrastructure, transit, education and health care/long-term facilities. Notable projects include the Metrolinx Go East Regional Bus facility, Air Canada’s new flight training facility, the Union Pearson Express platform and waiting lounge, and it is currently finishing the Hangar Six Facility at the Canadian Forces Base in Trenton.

    Although the company is only 14 years old, notes Rajesh Ahuja, company president and founder, repeat business from existing clients and an influx of new clients has boosted revenues considerably.

    DMS has also successfully completed several designbuild, LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) and energy retrofit projects in the ICI sector. In terms of its strategy for growth, DMS is expanding its activity in the public-private partnership (P3) market.

    From its inception in 2002, DMS decided to focus its services on large infrastructure and institutional construction projects, says Ahuja. “We chose this strategy based on several factors,” he notes, “including the sector’s inherent economic stability and financial security. As well, in recessionary or slow economic times, multiple levels of government often provide a financial boost through infrastructure programs.”

    “As we have grown we have been able to maintain our quality service offerings and stay within budget by developing and matching our internal infrastructure resources, including our human, technological and logistics resources to meet the everchanging needs of the ICI sector,” says Ahuja.

    A large number of employees have been with DMS for more than eight years, he says, citing a high level of employee engagement, which includes rigorous and continuous in-house training.

    “Our entire business operates on our indigenously developed, cloud-based web portal to manage every aspect of our construction project, even though the site may be miles or cities away from our office. Through this technology, we are able to manage every aspect of the project on a real-time basis.”

    Further, says Ahuja, the company’s collaborative team approach with clients and general contractors means clients can be assured their projects will run smoothly and that they will achieve the best value for their money.

    As a mechanical engineer, Ahuja has an extensive background in design, construction and maintenance, as well as sitting on the other side of the table with contractors. He therefore understands both clients’ and contractors’expectations. He chose the name “Dependable” for his business very deliberately. “My goal and that of my team is to have a company brand
    that is synonymous with quality, reliability and peace of mind for our clients.” B.C.
