Surrey, BC — One hundred years ago, H.E. Dendoff established his blacksmith and welding shop. Catering to the Vancouver Island farmers and logging companies, business grew beyond the horse-drawn carriage to include machine shop services and the production of leaf and coil springs.

Over the years, Dendoff has served many different industries; bearing witness to the changes in products and technology that have seen many businesses rise and fall. The need for springs has been constant throughout these years. With time, demands for tighter tolerances, a world-recognized quality control system, specialized spring steels, technology improvements, and design and engineering services increased. Dendoff Springs addressed these challenges and incorporated change into the culture of the company.

A fixture in the False Creek area of Vancouver, B.C., since 1929, Dendoff Springs relocated operations to nearby Surrey in 1994, where it remains today. The company continues to manufacture a wide array of shapes and sizes of springs; from the tiniest of coil compression springs used in electronic components to the massive locomotive suspension leaf springs. Produced from alloy steels and more specialized stainless, inconel and music wires, Dendoff’s products serve an extensive range of diverse industries that require springs.
