When Dave Brooks first opened the doors to Red Dragon Machine September of 2001 in Powell River, B.C., he wasn't sure he was doing the right thing. Two major machining shops that Dave had worked at previously had already closed down in recent months, but when companies that still required those services approached Dave asking him what his next moves were, knowing what kind of skilled background he had, they knew he would be the perfect guy to get something started.

Already having plenty of space to build a shop on his home property, the plan to get a business going appeared meant to be. And so, 14 years later, with the business as strong as ever, Dave quickly came to realize he made the right call to make the move to Powell River and create Red Dragon Machine.
