History

Prairie Hydraulic Equipment Ltd. was incorporated in Calgary, Alberta on July 11, 1978.  The company is a hydraulic sales, service, design and manufacturing facility, as well as a builder and supplier of highway snow blowers, snow plows, and sand/salt/liquid application equipment for the North American highway maintenance industry.  With almost 30 years of industrial service, Prairie Hydraulic Equipment Ltd. has expanded from its original single-bay facility to two facilities totaling 28,000 square feet.

In the first year, Prairie Hydraulic Equipment Ltd. started as a three-man operation, selling and repairing hydraulic tools and concrete cutting/coring equipment to the commercial construction industry.  In the late 1970′s and early 1980′s, the concrete cutting and coring section of the business was sold, allowing the partners to focus and develop the hydraulic and servicing end of the business.

In the early 1980′s, Prairie Hydraulic Equipment Ltd. was approached by Parks Canada and The City of Lethbridge, Alberta to customize the hydraulic systems for their snow plows and sanding systems.  It was a great success, and from that time Prairie Hydraulic Equipment Ltd. has continued to specialize in the customization, design, maintenance, and manufacturing of controls and hydraulic systems for the highway maintenance industry. We further expanded our products and services to offer full turnkey snow and ice solutions to our broad client base. For over 20 years, Prairie Hydraulic Equipment Ltd. has established itself as a leader in the highway maintenance industry.
