Our company values of People, Professional, and Passion come directly from the way our founders, Lorne and Tina ran their business and live their lives. Recognized by the Leduc-Nisku Rotary Club with an integrity award, all of us at Mixcor are proud to be part of the legacy that they started more than 45 years ago.
Lorne and Tina Mix founded our company in 1969 and built it "Strong from the Ground Up". On May 5, 2016 they were presented with a Capital Region Rotary Integrity Award.
Lorne and Tina Mix have been living Rotary's motto, "Service Above Self", for many years and have left a legacy of contributing to and supporting their community in countless ways.
Lorne was born and raised in Leduc and Tina, born and raised in Dewberry, Alberta, moved to Leduc 50 years ago to pursue a career in nursing. Lorne and Tina were married in February 1969 and decided to start Lorne Mix Trucking shortly after. In addition to working with the business, Tina also worked at the Leduc Hospital as a registered nurse.

People, Professional, Passion
Through the years, Lorne and Tina have managed to balance business, community, and a hectic family life. This still continues with several volunteer commitments and the enthusiastic support of their four grandchildren's sporting and cultural pursuits. Time is split between volunteering, faming, travel and gardening. They carve out as much time as possible to spend with family and friends, and are looking forward to to spending as much time as possible at Lake Koocanusa on their houseboat this summer and a trip to Maui this December.
Lorne and Tina Mix have always lived Rotary's FourWay Test every day; ensuring that their work and their volunteer activities are the truth, are fair to all concerned, build goodwill and better friendships and are beneficial to all concerned. Lorne and Tina Mix have made our community and our world a better place!
