Walter Siggelkow has over 30 years’ experience in mining and is the president of Hard-Line. Walter is a highly respected, smart, and motivating individual who is devoted to improving mine safety. Through his great passion for safety, he turned a start-up into a 70+ person multinational operation. Walter began his career as an underground heavy equipment mechanic. A serious back injury occurred and he could no longer work underground. This gave him the chance to indulge his interest in electronics and he enrolled in electronics engineering at Cambrian College. For a couple years, he took on the important role of General Manager at an electrical systems company. He then decided to direct his effort and first-hand knowledge into a company of his own.
