Colonial Garage Industrial Services

Colonial Garage was established in 1926 by Gordon Elton as a service and gas station. Over the decades, we started to focus on the expansion of additional service-based operations. We added our industrial fleet body shop in 1945, followed by a machine shop in 1951. In 1963, a radiator manufacturing and fabrication shop was opened in St. John’s.
