Our Story

Vale Industries has 130-year-old agricultural roots near Indian Head, Saskatchewan, Canada. Vale for “valley”, the name originated when it was first used for the farm business in 1974. In the 80’s and 90’s Vale Farms became known as the home of Conserva Pak™.

Conserva Pak™ was the primary business until 2007, when John Deere purchased the intellectual property while maintaining contract manufacturing at Vale.

By 2009 business ownership evolved through the formation of Vale Solutions and the introduction of manufactured hopper cones and wheel handling equipment.

In 2014, the Halford brothers, Chris and Grant, joined forces to transform Vale Solutions into Vale Industries. This partnership saw the addition of custom equipment for the aggregate and mining sector. And, in 2020, Vale Industries expanded its agriculture line to include a 6500-bushel portable field bin – the Grain Giant™.

Vale Industries is committed to supporting the community of Indian Head and area, providing exciting employment opportunities, and contributing to the local and Saskatchewan economy.
