DBA is a family business that was built up over several decades by Archie and Shirley Cardinal, and then run for a number of years by their daughter Tina. The firm’s current management team includes Cydney Pedersen, Archie and Shirley’s granddaughter, who represents a third generation at the helm.
Wags have on occasion suggested that “DBA” stands for “Designed By Archie”. Although it’s true that Archie continues to consult on system configurations, the “DBA” in “DBA Silencing” is actually an acoustic acronym related to decibels and the relative loudness of sounds as perceived by the human ear.
DBA provides exhaust, air intake, and coolant components for the following industries: mining, logging, and marine. Many of the parts we offer are standard items, but we also solve problems for our customers by developing and manufacturing customized solutions.
