Integrity Heavy Repair ( IHR ) was and is the desire of Brendan “Tex” Nardi and Eric Montpetit who together have over 30 years experience as Truck & Coach, Automotive and Heavy Equipment Technicians.

Both of us had envisioned starting up our own repair shop within the Sault Ste Marie & surrounding area. We have finally been able to achieve our initial goal and set up shop just outside the Soo.

Our goal is to offer top quality service to our customers’ rolling stock, deliver impeccable care to those units and to put our customers needs FIRST. Above all else we will deliver these with the upmost honesty & integrity we can deliver. Our individual upbringings lead us down remarkably similar thought processes when it comes to customer care and doing right by our clients. We strongly believe that a man’s handshake is his word, honesty is the best policy and to walk everyday with integrity. We want to bring that back to our industry!

A little background on INTEGRITY HEAVY REPAIR’s founders:


Brendan Nardi

Brendan, or TEX if you wish, was raised on a cattle farm in behind Bruce Mines, ON in Dunn’s Valley. Early on he knew that he wanted to twist wrenches for a living and set forth on that dream. He began working as an apprentice mechanic in Burlington Ontario in 1999 and since that time, has become a licensed 310T technician and was awarded 100% on his Certificate of Qualifications ( One of three in Canada that year ). He has worked for and managed a variety of truck and heavy equipment repair shops and dealerships along the way. He has amassed numerous certificates in the automobile, truck & coach and heavy equipment repair realm. Now, he has set his sights on creating a shop that EVERYONE can be proud of.


Eric Montpetit

Eric grew up in a similar environment, in the small town of Wharncliffe, ON. His love of anything mechanical and the very nature of the automotive sector called to him at an early age. Always wrenching, tearing apart, rebuilding and bringing life back into anything broken or worn out, he has always focused on perfection, cleanliness and determination to get the job done. He finally found his calling and began his Truck and Coach Apprenticeship in 2015.  Being the very mechanically inclined individual that he is, along with a vast array of mechanical knowledge and coupled with a desire to succeed, he has excelled in this field greatly. Eric is a well-rounded technician with a variety of mechanical experience with an equaled drive to provide customer and personal satisfaction. A dream to have a shop, that is CUSTOMER driven and to provide a good legacy is what encompasses Eric.
