Josh started his career in the oil and gas industry as a completions technician where he served in various service roles such as slickline, wireline, and completions tools. Josh started on his path of entrepreneurship in 2014 by founding completions tool provider, RISE Thru Tubing, where he still serves as President. In 2017, Josh purchased his first rental mats and serviced the Grande Prairie area with them until selling in 2020. Intrigued by the access mat business, Josh sought an opportunity to enter the access mat market post COVID which brought him to the purchase of Bluejay Industries. Josh now resides with his family on their farm east of Red Deer where they have a small cow calf operation.
