Empire Welding and Machining Ltd. was founded by the Esquirol family in 1986 in the city of North Battleford, Saskatchewan and is currently headed by Joseph Esquirol. The Esquirols farmed in the area and felt that their need for mechanical repair and welding services was not being met. Empire Welding and Machining Ltd. was established to address that need. In 1993-94 the company developed a line of agricultural products, land rollers and land packers, sold under the UltraPacker brand name. A complete line of Gauge Wheels for Draper headers was introduced in 2000. Currently Empire Welding and Machining Ltd. is the premier manufacturer of Gauge Wheels for the North American agricultural after-market. Westwards Parts Services Ltd is now the exclusive Canadian and Northern USA distributor for Empire Gauge Wheels and they have experienced sales well in excess of their expectations.

For twenty years Empire Welding and Machining Ltd. in North Battleford, Saskatchewan have been the company to trust with manufacturing and fabricating. We are the leader in R & D development every step of the way. We will design the idea and walk it through to the finished product. Empire Welding and Machining have long been trusted suppliers to the oilfield, agriculture and commercial industries.
The booming oil industry spurred the development of a low-rider oil tank moving trailer in tandem and tridem configurations. Models are available for 400 BBL tanks up to 1000 BBL tanks. Word out in the patch suggests that it just might be the best tank mover in the oilfield business. After all it was designed the Empire way and built to be the best!
In 2006 Empire Welding and Machining Ltd. Established a sales channel in Australia for the UltraPacker line of land rollers and continues to develop foreign markets where there is a need for high quality well-designed products.
