COMPANY HISTORY

The firm was established in 1914, under the name of SASKATOON WELDING COMPANY, and operated as a welding repair and machine shop until the early 1940’s, when manufacturing started to play a role in its operations.  The firm was widely known as being very progressive for its time.  It obtained the second electric welder brought into Saskatchewan, the first portable electric welder in the province, and was the first to include a machine shop in its welding operations.  This progressive philosophy has been maintained in its present day operations, keeping the development of its products up to date with the times.  No competitor can offer anything in the Company’s market, that the Company cannot do just as well.

The Company has a history of steady growth and expansions are kept within the firm’s financial and managerial capabilities, always maintaining a solid financial base.  The Company presently employs approximately 50 people, illustrating its growth over the years.  The company was incorporated in 1956 to reflect its endeavors.

The Company occupies a unique position in its market place as the firm’s products, especially boilers, command a premium price due to their reputation built up over the years for quality and service.  The Company takes advantage of being a “small firm”.  Decisions can be made quickly and customer service and attention can be on a higher level than is possible from a “giant” in the industry.

The Company has successfully melded re-sale items with its manufactured products.  Customers who do not have an immediate need for the Company’s manufactured product, are able to purchase re-sale items from the Company – thus allowing the Company to establish a reputation with these customers.  When the Customer requires the Company’s manufactured product, a comfortable relationship has already been established.  The Company handles all its own sales within Saskatchewan and Alberta, and has distributors and service depots located in all major cities in Canada.

SASKATOON BOILER MFG. CO. LTD. is a locally owned, 100% Canadian company.  There are 8 shareholders in the firm, each managing their respective departments.  The firm has been largely a family firm and still carries this flavour to a certain degree.  It is one of the few remaining small independent manufacturers offering a proprietary and complicated piece of equipment under its own brand name “SASKATOON” Boilers.

“SASKATOON” Boilers are readily accepted in a wide variety of installations, ranging from oil and gas plants, manufacturing firms, hospitals and schools.  The firm’s boilers have an excellent reputation for reliability – a reputation the Company backs up with excellent service and attention.
