Hardened Concave Upgrades for Rotary Combines
Tucked away in Sunnybrook, Alberta is a company built on a reputation as being among the world's most trusted combine parts manufacturers. Since opening their doors in 1979, Sunnybrook Welding has helped countless farmers remain competitive in their respective markets.
Gerald Foster, president of Sunnybrook Welding, credits the company's success to their commitment to innovation.
Innovative, Reversible, Modular concave Fabrication
"Undoubtedly, our strength lies in our ability to come up with innovative designs for threshing and separating. From concept to field trial, we are committed to helping our customers. As a team, we are always looking for incremental improvements that will allow our customers to yield the most profitable crops," Foster said.
The long-time industry veteran also credits his team for Sunnybrook Welding's achievements.
we are your farm team
"As a team, we're always looking for ways to improve," stated Foster. "We are not a complacent group that is satisfied by what we have achieved. From senior management to our manufacturers, we genuinely love what we do. Several of our team members, including myself, have worked in other businesses in the agriculture industry, so we understand the challenges and opportunities facing our customers."
Regarding the remainder of 2014, Foster expects markets to be competitive, but feels his company is well positioned to meet the challenges of the new milenium, thanks to its strong product mix.
global leadership In hardened Combine component technology
"We are one of Canada's most innovative combine parts manufacturers," Foster asserted proudly. "We can offer one of the largest selections of implement accessories and unique designs available on the planet. Looking ahead, we will continue to expand our product lines and introduce new designs based on the needs of our customers and the combine harvester industry."
Following decades of service to the agriculture industry, the Sunnybrook Welding team takes very seriously the vital role they play in their customers' profitability.
your profitablility is our business
"The livelihood of farmers across Western Canada is reliant on them being able to harvest with equipment that works. We understand the concave and cylinder are the heart of the combine. With this in mind, we offer a panorama of parts that are tested and proven to perform consistently and efficiently for all types of crops. Whether you're working with a John Deere, Case IH, New Holland, Massey or Gleaner harvester, we have you covered."
In addition to maintaining the right product mix, Foster believes strong customer service sets Sunnybrook Welding apart from their competition.
Customer focused - results driven
"Since day one, we have built our business on providing top-notch customer service. We are well aware our clients can purchase product from whomever they choose, therefore having knowledgeable, consciencious customer service is essential to our business focus. As a company, we are continually listening to our client partners and adjusting our processes so customers can achieve maximum harvest yields and increase profitablility. I credit the company's founder, Audun Njarheim, for setting the bar high. He was a strong believer in product quality, innovation and going above and beyond."
In the coming years, Foster feels the greatest challenge facing Sunnybrook Welding will be an aging workforce.
answering the challenge for a new generation of producers
"We are fortunate that a majority of our team members have been with us for over 10 years. However, we are fully aware that it will be a difficult to replace workers as they make their way into retirement. As an industry, we will be challenged to encourage young folks to learn more about agriculture and the many potential opportunities afforded to them. It's important to find the next generation of workers that are equally as passionate as today's workforce."
As a long-time member of the Agricultural Manufacturers of Canada (AMC), Foster and his team are appreciative of the organization's efforts.
Combine component Upgrades for the global Agricultural industry
"The AMC has always taken care of regulatory and industry issues that affect us. They are a great conduit for the sharing of ideas and concerns as it relates to our industry. There is a small comfort in knowing that we have a united voice on behalf of the agricultural industry as a whole. Having industry partners like the AMC allows us to focus on the core aspects of our business.
For producers and equipment dealers in Western Canada that are looking to source a new supplier, Foster encourages them to reach out to Sunnybrook Welding's sales team.

Sunnybrook concaves are tough as nails
Sunnybrook concaves are tough as nails and quick to change out when they do catch a rock or two. I wouldn’t waste combining time using a factory concave unless I really had to.
