Founded in 1978 by Bill Arishenkoff, Bill’s Heavy Duty was in South Slocan at the Playmor Junction up until 2018. Over the years, the company has earned a reputation for integrity and professionalism.

Richard bought into the company in 2009 and in 2014 took over ownership and operations completely. Eva Hernandez joined Richard and two of their three sons to help operate and grow the company in 2017. December 2018, the company relocated to its current 30,000 square foot facility near the airport in Castlegar.
