The North Star Family

A family-owned and operated business, North Star Technical Inc. was founded by Anthony “Tony” Pinelli, P. Eng., in 1986. Tony established a tradition of quality workmanship, which is now carried on by his sons, who have ambitious plans to continue to grow the business through ongoing training and development opportunities for staff, the addition of new equipment, and the expansion of the company’s physical plant.

North Star Technical Inc.’s facility is located in the industrial heart of Hamilton and services customers across Canada and the United States.

North Star’s reputation has been built on high-quality work and exceptional customer service.

We have developed our own quality management system, which has led to ISO certification and CWB facility certifications.

North Star’s skilled employees share the values that were established early on. We consider our employees to be members of our extended family, and most haveserved the company and its customers for well over a decade.

Our team is ready at all times to satisfy our customers’ most demanding and time-sensitive needs.
