A History in Bulk Material Handling
Nordstrong has been providing bulk material handling solutions since 1909 when the Canadian rights to the Strong-Scott Manufacturing name were sold. Strong Scott Mfg. Co. evolved into Sullivan Strong Scott, then in 1998 a change of ownership resulted in a name change to Strongco Engineered Systems.
In 1950, recently immigrated Steve Seniuk founded Seniuk’s Blacksmithing in Winnipeg, Manitoba which became SS Manufacturing Ltd. in 1952.
The first product line of “P” series underbody hydraulic truck hoists (used mainly under farm truck bodies) began manufacturing in 1966. Design and manufacture of bulk material handling equipment, including bucket elevators, drag conveyors, and other material handling products for the commercial grain industries started in the mid-1970s.
Wanting to relate more closely to the “Nordic” trade name and help identify products in the marketplace, SS Manufacturing Ltd. changed its name to Nord-Sen Metal Industries Ltd. The company continued to grow into the early 1980s, adding administrative staff, engineering personnel, and skilled trades people. In Canada, the company became one of the largest suppliers of bulk material handling equipment, including bucket elevators, drag conveyors, belt conveyors, railcar movers, and other associated equipment.
Nord-Sen joined Canerector in 2003, joining their other companies that focus on different facets of steel production design, fabrication, and erection.
Strongco and Nord-Sen merged in 2009 to become Nordstrong. Today, Nordstrong stretches across North America, employing hundreds and customizing bulk material handling equipment for some of the continent’s largest companies.
