WRT Equipment Ltd. traces its history back to 1968 when a group of inventors in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, produced the world's first Rotary Thresh Combine. Originally called "Western Roto Thresh" the company continued to focus on the production of grain harvesting combines until 1978.
The success of the rotary thresh combine drew attention from the large agricultural implement manufacturers. As these manufacturers began to produce their own versions of the rotary thresh combine, it became apparent that the company would not be able to compete with large scale manufacturers and the company shifted its focus to serving the road building industry.
The company spent a number of years developing both a product line and providing solutions to the road building industry and in 1981, the name of the company was changed to WRT Equipment Ltd. As the capabilities of the company expanded, the mining industry also became a major market for both custom fabrication and equipment.
Under new ownership since 2006, WRT is committed to developing working relationships with customers, providing solutions to help their business succeed and reach production goals. WRT's focus on providing solutions and quality-built equipment providing a long service life, blended with excellent service, is WRT's foundation.
