TNTD was founded in 2012
True North owner and president Ken V. started his illustrious career in the United Kingdom. Working at Cummins Inc., Ken perfected his trade, quickly earning the nickname “The Diesel Doctor”. Able to diagnose issues by listening to the sound of an engine, Ken travelled around the globe as a Cummins Certified Field Technician, repairing engines in over 20 different countries. Ken spent many years with Cummins Western Canada, often fixing 400-tonne haul trucks in the oil, gas and mine industries. Coming in from the cold, Ken held the title of shop foreman, providing hands-on experience to all those ready to work hard and learn the trade. Forever the family man, opening True North Truck & Diesel with his sons in 2012 was not just the highlight of his career, but a natural progression cultivated over 40 years in the industry. Passing down his expertise and preparing the 3rd generation of Heavy Duty Technicians in his family, it’s clear that Diesel pumps through Ken's veins.

"These guys are great! You won't find a more professional and honest repair shop in Edmonton. And it goes without saying that Ken is arguably the most respected and knowledgeable Cummins mechanic in western Canada. He is literally a walking encyclopedia of Cummins engines. We find their rates are fair, especially given this level of expertise. They understand that downtime means lost revenue and they have gone way beyond the call of duty in getting us back on the road ASAP. Many thanks to the whole team at True North."
"Awesome shop, had crazy problems with a 2012 Pete ISX 550 deleted, ran horrible, the engine was getting air into the fuel system, the team there was able to do their magic in finding this ghost, many people and shops tried, but had no success, but thanks to Ken and his team at True North the problem was fixed. I cannot thank you guys enough for your great service. (The CUMMINS specialists!) Keep up the great work! Darren"
