Our Company

Western Equipment is the leading supplier of Industrial, Safety & Rigging supplies to BC logging, mining, and construction industries.


Established in 1947

Since Western Equipment's beginnings, back in 1947, at a small store in Victoria, change and growth have been the mainstay and the challenge for this company and its employees. Currently operating out of six branches in BC, Canada, our company is a major supplier and consultant to the province's resource based industries. We can also boast that no other industrial distributor in BC has the depth and diversity of products to offer their customers like we do. With a full service rigging shop in all branches, we offer custom-made wire rope cable and chain assemblies made on site.

Proud to serve British Columbia businesses

Over the past fifty years, we have seen a lot of changes to industries in BC. With the trend towards single sourcing initiatives among large and medium sized companies, Western Equipment is well positioned to pursue and succeed in this continually changing business environment. We believe the future looks very bright for our company!
