About The Company

The Extra Mile

Unlike some marine diesel mechanic teams, we don’t stop at the simple fixes. Our specialty is putting together the intricate pieces of a complex repair seamlessly. We’ll search for the parts you need, then do whatever it takes to complete your repair. We also offer “extras” such as rentals and 24-hour mobile services. Our true goal is to deliver the highest quality service, along with the highest quality work. We understand that pausing business for a repair is simply not an option.

From Yard Worker to Apprentice Mechanic

“Around 1988, in the clatter of engines at Port Alberni Marine Industries, I found my true calling. A childhood of tinkering with Detroit Diesel engines paved the way for an apprenticeship, starting a lifelong love for this trade. Today, as Trend Diesel thrives, I remember when my passion for the work began.”

-Andrew Reynolds, Owner


A Neighboring Reminder of the Past

“In 2000, I (Trend Diesel) worked with Marlowe Marine, which served Rail America in bustling Nanaimo. The site is still a hub of industry activity today. My workspace would shift in 2005 to just above this very yard. Until my move to 5th Street in 2010, I(Trend Diesel) had a unique perspective, overlooking the rail slips below from the bluff."

-Andrew Reynolds, Owner
