Our Progressive Heritage
In 1957, Ian Martin and Mary Masson connected to form a consulting engineering practice. When a building contract was abruptly cancelled in 1959, Ian and Mary responded with an entrepreneurial flexibility that still exemplifies the Ian Martin brand. They contracted out their engineers, helping to complete the Ford Motor plant in Oakville, and giving birth to the Contract Engineering industry in Canada.
Over five decades later, The Ian Martin Group continues to staff dozens of nation-building engineering projects as a family business. Throughout three generations of leadership we have not wavered in our commitment to actualize the human possibility of people connected around meaningful work.
