Cubex over 50 years
In 1972 Cubex Ltd was founded as an equipment dealership in Winnipeg Manitoba. From inception our focus has been to provide innovative, market-leading equipment solutions to our customer base. As a family owned business, Cubex believes the key to long-term success is building quality relationships with our suppliers, employees and customers.
In the beginning Kitch Wilson Sr. was running operations from a small 1 room warehouse on Wall Street in Winnipeg. At the time Cubex was focused on selling Street Sweepers and Refuse Vehicles to the municipal market. Shortly thereafter Schramm High Pressure Compressors, Mobile Rotary Drill Rigs and TRW Mission Air Percussion Drilling Equipment were added to the product line; our entry point to the mining and water well industries. As air percussion drilling technology became more widely accepted, Cubex Ltd was able to expand business in the oil field as well where the technology became industry standard.
During the 1980s Bill Wilson joined the ownership group and Cubex purchased the Surface and Underground Drill Rig Business from TRW Mission. At that time Cubex moved the underground manufacturing business to Winnipeg. Over the next 30+ years we built a dealer network who expanded our sales reach throughout Africa, Australia, North America, South America and Asia. In 2014 Cubex sold the manufacturing business to Sandvik who are still operating out of the facility in Winnipeg.
Throughout all of this, Cubex continued to provide innovative equipment solutions to the municipal markets in Canada. We extended our expertise into roadbuilding & maintenance, underground infrastructure maintenance, and of course continued to focus on street sweeping and refuse handling equipment. In the 1990’s we opened a branch in Quebec allowing us to expand our presence into Eastern Canada; and in the mid-2000s we partnered with the Alamo Group who are, and continue to be, leading innovators in the street sweeping, mowing, and vacuum truck industries. The sale of the manufacturing division allowed us to strengthen our municipal supply business and expand into new markets within Canada. We currently have 5 full-service branches with locations in the provinces of British Columbia, Alberta, Manitoba, Ontario and Quebec.
In its 50th year Cubex is still family owned and continues to operate on the same principles it was founded. As we evolved we have never lost focus on bringing the highest quality equipment solutions to industry. Cubex is thankful to our high quality suppliers, to our team members, and to our customer base; each of which has been integral to 50 years of success. We truly look forward to building on these relationships for the next 50+ years.
