HOUSTON — Vulcan Industrial is adding a location in Western Alberta, Canada to support growth in the region. The facility, which will be fully operational March 1, 2023, will serve as a warehouse and support centre for Vulcanhigh-performance hydraulic fracturing fluid ends as well as valves, seats, plungers and other consumable field components.

It will support service activities that include light maintenance, repairs and modification. The expansion comes as a result of consistent business growth in the region.

Vulcan’s engineered products support several industries including defense, aerospace, high specification bolting, and energy. The company’s recent uptick of business in Western Canada has been within the upstream oil and gas sector, where the company specializes in innovations that improve the economics of hydraulic fracturing fleets—providing components with advanced engineering, superior service and in-house material science to help units run longer, better and more economically.

“Supply chains play a critical role in helping keep both fleet opex and operator breakeven as efficient as possible,” said Simon Lawrie, President, Vulcan Industrial. “By staging these mission-critical pieces of hydraulic fracturing hardware, consumables and service personnel near concentrated hydraulic fracturing activity in Alberta and British Columbia, we’re helping fleets add more value and create efficiencies across the energy supply chain. Customer response to this continued investment in the region has already been overwhelmingly positive.”


Vulcan’s new facility will be located at 9521 78th Ave #102 in Clairmont, just southwest of Clairmont Lake.
