MSS Ltd. is a Northern Business for Northern Needs.


MSS is located in Hay River in the Northwest Territories in Canada and services hospitals, health centres, home care facilities, ambulance services, fire departments, industrial companies and individual clients. With this site we hope to provide information about our company services to our customers and visitors. Please feel free to leave your comments and questions about anything you see at this web site.

MSS Limited was started in 1991 by Doug Swallow and Bruce Sutherland. They both have backgrounds as nursing supervisors, nurses-in-charge in health centers and as senior managers of health institutions. They have also worked in the industrial health industry. This combined experience has given them invaluable insight into the operational concerns of health centers such as product research and pricing, the need for extended outdates on medication and transporting supplies throughout the North efficiently.

This concept has developed over time and presently MSS has 11,000 square foot warehouse space that contains over 16,000 inventory items. These items include medical, pharmaceutical, surgical, laboratory, radiology, home care, home oxygen, safety, first aid, outdoor safety, marine safety and janitorial products. MSS has developed a purchasing network of over 1000 vendors to provide these products. MSS's staff is ready to assist you.

MSS can ensure each item will get to its northern destination quickly and efficiently through our affiliation with the transportation industry.
