Graduating from the General Machinist Program in 1986 out of Windsor Ontario, Jim began his journey in the trades as a first year apprentice while quickly advancing to Computer Numerical Control Machinist (CNC) and in 1991 he became a Certified Journeyman Machinist. He became shop foreman in 1998 while then extending his education into engineering, this is the time when Jim began working with other startup companies, ranging from building water bottling machinery to plastic injection moulds. In 2001, Jim made the move from Windsor, Ontario to Port Moody, BC.

 Jim’s knowledge base and experience also includes hydrogen fuel cell development, underwater vehicles & exploration systems, alternate fuels, 3D scanner creation and Carbon Fibre.

In 2008, Anderson Prototypes was created and now home to five CNC machines and several manual machines. He employs his 30+ years’ experience and creative machining methods to produce high quality and unique products. Jim works closely with clients to design and produce custom-made prototype parts, fabrications, assemblies and small machinery, as well as small batch production to serve a wide range of clients and industries.
