Convey-All Industries Inc. is one of North America's leading custom manufacturers of conveyor systems. Based in Winkler, Manitoba, the company exports their products to locations across North America and several countries including Mexico, Russia, Kazahkstan, Poland, Germany, Turkey, South Africa and Australia.
Convey-All was the first Canadian manufacturer to produce agricultural tube conveyors, and have since developed a diverse range of products for both the agricultural and oil & gas sectors.
Through the company's focus on customer satisfaction, providing innovative solutions, and their willingness to take on new challenges, Convey-All has proven itself to be a true contender in the global manufacturing market.
Convey-All's former VP of Sales & Marketing receives Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur of the Year award in the Manufacturing category for the Prairie Region.
Convey-All is the recipient of the P.W. Enns Business Excellence Award presented by the Winkler & District Chamber of Commerce.
Convey-All is awarded The Outstanding New Product award at Manitoba Ag Days.
Due to the company's constant growth and development, a new assembly facility of 20,000 sq ft of shop space is added to the existing Plant 7 location.
Convey-All celebrates 30 years in business.
Eastview 4, a brand new 30,000 sq ft building was completed in July. Comprised of nine bays with seven overhead cranes, this building serves as the primary SandKing assembly location as well as CST and hydraulic assembly.
Convey-All produces its first SandKing prototype, opening doors into the oil and gas industry.
In 1994, the company was asked to build a line of Drill Fill tanks for a company called StorKing. Within a couple of years, Convey-All purchased StorKing from Meridian Industries and reconstructed their design. The innovative design propelled them into a new direction, pioneering the process for placing the conveyor belting system inside the conveyor. These units are now known as Seed Tenders and have become one of Convey-All's major lines.
The company continued to see growth throughout the 1990's with only a temporary decrease due to the recession in 1990. In 1992, Convey-All signed a contract with Grandeur Houseboats to build large pontoons. Soon after, they were contacted by PMI, a major farm equipment manufacturer, to produce a line of combine platforms for the pulse market.
Although manufacturing conveyor systems remained the focal point of Convey-All's business activities, the importance of diversification and seizing new opportunities became apparent at the height of the recession. In 1991 Convey-All developed a line of outdoor wood furnaces to supplement business which is still currently in operation under the name Global Hydronics.
Convey-All moved to its current location at 130 Canada Street in Winkler. This provided the space needed to take on more custom and repair work and continue to manufacture their expanding conveyor lines.
After two years of doing custom welding work for a number of Winkler-based manufacturers, the opportunity arose to take over another small business which manufactured conveyors. Within the next couple of years the company experienced significant growth. Now with an expanded line of conveyors retailing across Western Canada, Convey-All's facilities were in need of expansion.
After 12 years of farming near Winkler and another 10 years working as a welder, Bob Toews opens a small custom welding shop under the name Commercial Welding.
