Starting out in the oil and gas field, in 2005 Dave saw industrial rail sector services begin to evolve and recognized a demand for supplying manpower for loading services. As Petro-Traxx Inc. began to grow, so did the need to provide switching services and mechanical services for railcar movers. In 2015, Dave co-founded Ultra-Traxx Inc., to provide ultrasonic rail testing.  In 2019 Petro-Traxx became the authorized Shuttlewagon dealer for Western Canada.
