Norcan Fluid Power, western Canadaâ€™s premier fluid power company, has been providing hydraulic products and services to our customers since 1974. With seven locations, in Nisku, red Deer, Calgary, Saskatoon SK, Prince George BC, Kamloops BC, and Richmond BC, and with $7 million in inventory we are well positioned to offer our customers outstanding service.
Typically, our business is conducted in three different interconnected areas: distribution of hydraulic components; service, including in-shop repair, testing, field service, and fabrication; as well as design and engineering.
Norcan has been active in the oil patch in Alberta and Saskatchewan since the late 90â€™s, but our employees have years of experience behind them from working in Nisku and Calgary in the fluid power industry for the last 30 years.
We offer some of the best hydraulic products on the market today including Sauer â€“ Danfoss,
Atos, Parker, Olaer, ASA, MP Filtri, and Auburn Gear. These products and the factory support allows us to offer our customers the best available products and systems for their applications.
Our sales and engineering departments focus on system design and integration, working hand in hand with our customers to meet their needs. This service is backed up with engineering CAD support that provides drawings and schematics for each project or system.
As well as the actual hydraulic system design, we also specialize in the design, programming and integration of the electronic control systems using the Sauer Danfoss Plus 1 Controls. This allows us to take turn-key responsibility for the entire package.
Norcan has been involved in system design on virtually any and all oilfield equipment from service rigs to snubbing units, including catwalks, drilling rigs, vac trucks, pressure test trucks, coil tubing, cementers, and frac units. We are not limited to only mobile equipment, either. We have numerous industrial customers ranging from pipe fabrication to pipe coating, and many other industries as well.
Norcan Fluid Power has recently introduced a QA/QC program which will help improve our own internal processes as well as providing customers better documentation of the goods and services provided.
Like many companies in western Canada, our true strength begins and ends with our skilled and dedicated employees. We have approximately 200 employees in our seven locations and our primary focus is continuous training on the products and services we provide.
