Trinity Power Rentals Story

Our Story – Delivering Power Assurance

From its inception, Trinity Power Rentals has been more than just an order desk and delivery service. In fact, we do not see ourselves as a rental company at all – we believe we’re in the business of delivering power assurance.

Our beginnings in the film industry taught us all we needed to know about complex projects with unreasonable deadlines; providing turnkey solutions and supporting people working under intense pressure.

In 2003, we began to shift our core focus to the industrial and commercial sectors. In addition to film and event projects, we are now fully immersed in providing solutions for oil & gas, mining and construction industries. And, in 2008, to help manage this growing demand, we opened a second Trinity Power branch in Edmonton A.B.

At the same time we established an infrastructure to support these new sectors, our initial film and event markets grew in unison. In 2010, our services were utilized in an event of grand proportion and significance. We take great pride in the contribution our company made at Vancouver Winter Olympics.

Our company has been built on a legacy of customer service and doing things right. A multi-generational family business, Trinity Power Rentals was designed to be a concept-to-completion solutions provider. Our founding partners understood that when you’re delivering 1000s of watts of temporary power, you’ve got to get it right, without fail – or projects fail and lives are at risk.

Founding partner Ross Johnston passed on his unwavering beliefs of thoughtfulness, customer support, integrity, and follow-through to his son Todd. Now the President of Trinity Power, Todd understands that the key to delivering excellence in all aspects of the business is the Trinity Power team. According to Todd:

Todd Johnston“We are a work hard, play hard group, who knows that this is not a 9-5 industry. Our team believes that responsiveness is one of our key success drivers and every team member is committed to doing whatever it takes to get the job delivered right. Everyone really cares about getting the job out quickly and properly. It’s not unusual to find one of our journeymen electricians in the shop after hours, customizing a large piece of equipment for delivery the next morning; supported voluntarily by other team members, even if they are just there for moral support and making sure that he has had dinner. It is easy to do a great job for your clients when your team is on board with the overall vision.”
