Company Profile

The History of Balzer's Canada Inc.

BCI was founded in 1937 by C.H. Balzer. The Balzer family has been keenly involved in the operation of the business, and C.H.'s grandson, Ron, currently sits as President and CEO.


During the 1970's, BCI diversified into the industrial field, completing work on water treatment plants, sewage treatment plants and thermal generating plants. During the 1980's BCI expanded into a new office and fabrication shop, which was comprised of over 15,000 square feet situated on three acres of property east of Regina, SK.


In the 1990's BCI started a maintenance divison, and opened a branch office in Alberta providing construction and maintenance services across the prairie provinces. Since the turn of the millenium, BCI has undergone a large expansion and the Saskatchewan office and fabrication facilities now consist of 70,500 square feet situated on twenty-three acres.
