About Us

Hopf Mechanical and Hydraulics is a licensed heavy duty repair shop located in Brooks, Alberta. Our staff consists of Journeyman Heavy Equipment Technicians, Journeyman Automotive Technicians, Journeyman Millwright, and Apprentice Heavy Equipment Technicians.

Because Brooks is a hub for the oil and gas industry, the majority of our work focuses on these areas; however, we also provide considerable repairs for construction, agriculture, fuel transport, and rail. Hopf Mechnical and Hydraulics is continually diversifying, and our customers are extremely loyal because of our customer service, high standard of workmanship, parts and service warranty, and fair pricing – which will never be compromised.

Hopf Mechanical and Hydraulics has been in business since 2004 and in 2010, we partnered up with Logan Industries. As of April 2015, Hopf Mechanical & Hydraulics is owned and operated locally by Brooks residents Craig Hopf and Jason Bolen.
