Saskatchewan is a prairie and boreal province in west-central Canada, the only province without natural borders. It has a total area of 651,900 square kilometres, nearly 10 percent of which is fresh water, composed mostly of rivers, reservoirs, and the province’s 100,000 lakes. Saskatchewan is bordered on the west by Alberta, on the north by the Northwest Territories, on the east by Manitoba, to the northeast by Nunavut, and on the south by the American states of Montana and North Dakota. It is here that Industrial Scaffold has operations in Saskatoon and Esterhazy.
The town is situated between two scenic valleys: the Qu’Appelle River Valley that extends 260 km east to west from its confluence with the Assiniboine River in western Manitoba to Lake Diefenbaker in south central Saskatchewan, and the Kaposvar Valley that skirts in the town’s north end then winds through the town’s 9 hole golf course and flows south-east along an abandoned rail line to join with the Qu’Appelle River Valley near the neighbouring village of Tantallon. Esterhazy is less than a five-hour drive from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan’s largest centre and less than a three-hour drive from the province’s capital city of Regina. They mines outside of Esterhazy have a combined production capacity of 4.2 million tonnes per year – still the largest potash mine in the world. This satellite office now services the potash mines of southeastern Saskatchewan for their scaffolding and environmental containment requirements.
Saskatchewan’s largest city is a four season destination and has gained a reputation as a great place to both live and visit. A young vibrant and entrepreneurial demographic is energizing the city with exciting new things to see and do. Well supported by a history of know-how and innovation, Saskatoon celebrates throughout the year its rich culture, through a continuous line-up of festivals, events, performing arts, and a fine selection of crafts and fine arts. It is here that Industrial Scaffold provides scaffolding to several industries (oil and gas, energy, construction, etc.).
