About Cutting Edge Aluminium

Quality, integrity and strength, without compromise

The incredible beauty of the west coast waters bring unique challenges to marine vessels and crews. We deliver proven solutions and products that are built for our environment. Located in Campbell River, our busy shop delivers the highest quality products, made with care and the user in mind.

Originally from Australia, owner Leon Brolsma has worked in the welding and marine metal fabrication industry since 1998. After completing an intensive 4 year apprenticeship building vessels from 50 – 100 feet, Leon traveled the globe, working on nearly every continent. He then settled in Campbell River on Vancouver Island and saw a gap in the aluminium boat building industry. Leon decided to launch Cutting Edge Aluminium to provide innovative solutions for the recreational and commercial fishing, aquaculture, water taxi and tourism industries.

Cutting Edge is proudly associated with the following companies:


Badinotti Net Services Canada Ltd. was first introduced to Leon's company Cutting Edge when we required a retrofit on one of our vessels the Gforce 2. We quickly recognized that the workmanship, solutions and professional approach to the project from Cutting Edge was at a high level of competency. As a result, Leon and his company are now Badinotti's first choice for our fabrication and design requirements for projects as well as repairs and maintenance work. Kevin Onclin, CEO, Badinotti Net Services Canada


I have never in my 50 years seen such quality work and fabricating - that man can weld! Without a doubt his work looks great when he's done. Leon is easy to talk to and when he has a problem, he calls immediately. I highly recommend him for all your welding and fabrication needs, you won't be disappointed. Dean Horatchka, Harbour Charters LTD
