Nutana Machine Ltd. is an integrated manufacturer and a solution provider serving many industries with potash as the main focus.
The Nutana neighbourhood, which is Saskatoon’s oldest and founded in 1883, was the location of the original shop when the company was established in 1946. The current facility on 3.25 acres in North Industrial Saskatoon has been expanded to 37,000 square feet and is stocked with state-of-the-art fabrication, machining, and engineering technologies.
Three generations of the Galbraith family management have been successful in attracting superior, long-term talent in order to best serve their customers. Welders, fabricators, machinists, mechanics, estimators, project managers, and professional engineers all work as a tight-knit team to deliver quality products on time and on budget.
Continuing education and training is a cornerstone of the company’s operations along with participation in the apprenticeship system. Commitment in practicing diversity and inclusion in its hiring practices, and financial support for many Aboriginal events and causes will continue in the future.
The broad experience of the company’s many long-term employees and the resulting positive deliverables has enabled its customers to develop a high degree of confidence in the company’s ability to deliver mission-critical complex projects on very tight schedules.
Sample projects include:
– Engineering and manufacturing of 1500 TPH mobile bridge conveyors. Twenty systems are currently operating with the longest 10-bridge system approaching 500 feet long.
– Flotation machines 200 cubic metres each; 25,000 production man hours including 3D modeling of the project to verify customer details and produce shop drawings. This API 650 project required cold temperature steel, chrome carbide overlay plate, and 100 per cent radiography.
-Potash thickener fabrication. Components shipped to New Mexico for erection.

The company’s interpretation of quality means that “we demand project success for our customer”. It has developed the practice of doing an internal critical review of customer drawings. Many times this has meant suggesting alternate details or materials for customer approval to improve the final product or reduce cost.
This dedication to shipping quality and best value is evident by the highly valued long-term customer relationships that Nutana Machine has maintained over decades.
