In the 1960′s, Al Harris, then a farm equipment dealer, saw the need for a specialized agricultural parts service in Western Canada. Although a number of quality “short-line” manufacturers were represented in the Canadian West, they were unable to provide adequate parts service, an important factor in providing service to agriculture.
In 1970, Al started a service for Alberta dealers, and in February of 1973, Westward Parts Services Ltd. was incorporated as a separate business. A Regina warehouse was opened in February of 1974. Westward Parts soon expanded to serve Manitoba and British Columbia dealers, and then Eastern Canadian dealers and distributors. Although Al has passed away, Westward Parts remains a 100% Canadian owned private corporation.
Late in 1992, Westward Parts acquired most of the inventory and assets of City Machinery Limited, a large Winnipeg industrial distributor. Westward Parts is now supplying bearings, power transmission products, tools, components, and general industrial supplies to a large number of industrial and commercial customers.
Since its establishment, Westward Parts has grown steadily and can now supply the largest selection of “all makes parts and power transmission products” in Canada. Westward Parts is Western Canada’s leading agricultural distributor, supplying almost all the region’s farm equipment dealers, and other farm parts retailers. Westward Parts continues to provide an authorized original parts distribution service for several quality farm equipment manufacturers.
Westward Parts also manufacturers and distributes accessories, attachments and small equipment, and supplies specialized items to Original Equipment Manufacturers. Westward Parts growth has been accomplished by aggressively pursuing manufacturers, the world over, that can supply us with top quality products at competitive prices. Westward Parts has enjoyed long continuous relationships with its suppliers.
With our warehouses in Red Deer, Alberta; Regina, Saskatchewan; and Winnipeg, Manitoba, Westward Parts is equipped to provide effective service at competitive prices to all customers. Westward Parts’ objective has always been efficient service to Canadian farmers and acreage owners.
