Meet the supplier: Nightcrawler 4x4

Tracey Halladay, co-owner of NIghtcrawler 4x4, appreciates her customers and loves her job.


Nightcrawler 4x4 Inc. is owned and operated by Tracey Halladay and her husband Darren. They have been operating in Elkford for just over 15 year and expanded to a second industrial/heavy duty location in November of 2012. Nightcrawler 4x4 offers full automotive repairs and service as well as industrial and fleet/contractor repairs for the mining industry.

Kootenay Business sat down with Tracey to find out a little more about the woman behind the company.

Where did you grow up?

I have lived in Elkford since 1980 and consider this my home town. I was born in Fort Frances, Ontario, and moved here when I was 13.

What kind of workplace challenge brings out the best in you?

We have recently purchased a computerized plasma cutting table for steel and aluminum design. I enjoy the creative aspect of putting together something to cut and seeing the finished result.

What do you love most about your job?

Dealing with the customers who have supported us for the past 15 years.

What was your first job and what did you learn from it?

My first real job other than babysitting was data entry into a computer for an accounting firm. It taught me to always recheck my work.

If your city were a person, what would you say is its dominant characteristic?

Unfortunately, I think my city has a bit of a split personality disorder.

If you could be a super hero, what would be your super power?

To make people be able to settle their differences of opinion without arguing, fighting or wars. There is a much better way to get a point across and people will never agree about everything.
