Default Shand Industries

I just noticed a post on FB about Shand Industries, Winnipeg. It said they manufactured composite motors and may have been bought by Canaroc. Do we have any history on this company?

Never heard of them but still have a few Canaroc motors.
I think all their motors were composite.

Canaroc has been out of business for many years.

Yes, I'm familiar with Canaroc, which was still in business when I got into rocketry. I'm asking about Shand Industries.

Could it perhaps be the name of a "holding company?" I'm thinking of the company name--which I can't recall at the moment (I think it's "RM...something")--that has been on the printed receipts/invoices--which came in the parcels--of online orders I've made to Quest Aerospace. The company apparently owns both Aerotech and Quest (both of their names and logos are associated with the "RM..." name), and maybe Shand Industries is the same way with respect to Canaroc (or whoever bought *them*, years ago)?

Just a wild rear and kick in the dark here--could Shand Industries maybe be a Canadian company that produces composite solid rocket propellant, perhaps primarily for Canadian (and NATO) military rocket munitions such as their CRV7 (the Canadian-made https://www.google.com/search?sxsrf...HWuVCDYQ4dUDCAs , composite propellant-powered variant of the [double-base propellant-powered, see: http://www.designation-systems.net/...in-rockets.html ] Hydra 70 [MK 66] FFAR--Folding-Fin Aerial Rocket)? (The Chinese "Sky" brand model rocket motors and kits [Apogee Rockets carries Sky model rocket kits, launch pads, and launch controllers, see: https://www.apogeerockets.com/index...7&skill_level=0 ] are a "secondary product line" for the parent company [its name isn't Sky], whose primary products [I forget which] are cloud-seeding rockets or military rocket munitions.)

I can't add much other than that Shand Industries sold a B2 motor (and failed to deliver an order to someone who ordered some of the engines through an ad in The Leader-Post [Regina, Saskatchewan] in October of 1977).

I just sent an email to the Canadian Rocketry Assn to see if they can point me toward a Canadian rocketry historian.
