Over the past 18 years
Trade-Mark Industrial Inc. of
Cambridge, Ontario has defined itself
as a remarkably successful family-
owned enterprise in southwestern
Ontario specializing in industrial,
commercial and institutional
contracting. Launched in 1998 by
founder Russ Straus, it is predominantly
known as a well-established multi-
trade contractor offering services such
as millwrighting, 3D construction,
heavy rigging, electrical, piping,
fabrication, structural, transportation,
predictive services, custom machine
shop, building maintenance, electric
machine shop, sheet metal and HVAC
installations and repairs.
A MILLWRIGHT BY
trade, Russ Straus remains
at the helm as president overseeing day-to-day
operations. Prior to Trade-Mark he owned a
smaller contracting company between 1985 and
1995 in the hamlet of St. Agatha, Ontario, just west
of Kitchener. Following a decade in business the
company was sold to Sutherland-Schultz Ltd. As
part of the transaction Straus agreed to remain on
as a manager for two years but the entrepreneur-
ial spirit continued to burn inside, and so he made
the decision to once again venture out on his own
with the launch of Trade-Mark.
Russ Straus now has each of his five
children working alongside him in senior man-
agement positions, including son Dan Straus
who is Vice President, Finance.
