Our Founder: Terrence R. Coyle, Sr.


TRC Hydraulics was founded in 1986 by Terrence R. Coyle, a business leader and entrepreneur dedicated to the social and economic development of Atlantic Canada.

He was dedicated to the continued growth of the company. From the day the company began, he instilled in all TRC employees that the company’s core value was service – a value that is no less important today even though Terrence passed away in 2009. His wife and business partner, Jacqueline, also played an active role in the company until her passing in 2013.

Terrence and Jacqueline were married in 1958 and their legacies live on among their four children: Terry, the current President and CEO of TRC Hydraulics and TRC Manufacturing; Ruth; Barbara; and Sandra; as well as in their numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Terrence was an accomplished business leader and citizen, having served with the Royal Canadian Navy in Korea during the Korean War. After settling in Moncton, he opened the area’s first hydraulic repair company in 1966, a company he eventually sold. In 1986, he was once again drawn to the hydraulics business and began TRC Hydraulics, headquartered today in Dieppe, New Brunswick, Canada, and employing 100 people. TRC Hydraulics is the parent company of TRC Manufacturing.

Terrence’s other accomplishments and awards include:

  • Companion of the Université de Moncton’s Order of Regents (1995)
  • Named one of Atlantic Canada’s Top 50 CEOs by Atlantic Business Magazine (2000)
  • Recipient of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal (2002)
  • Active community volunteer and sponsor of local sport teams

“My father’s fingerprints are on everything we do,” says son Terry Coyle, President and CEO of TRC Hydraulics and TRC Manufacturing. “We remain a family-owned business and are fully committed to providing our clients with outstanding, hands-on service – a trait that my father instilled in all of us. Whether a client needs repairs, maintenance or custom design and manufacturing – something that doesn’t even exist yet – we’re there for them every step of the way from concept to production and maintenance.”

“Today, TRC does business all over the world,” Terry says. “My father would be very proud that his legacy is strong and continues to positively impact our community and – most importantly – the clients who make it all possible.”
