Our Story

Located in the centre of North America, Empire Machinery & Tools Ltd. serves customers across Canada and the United States. Winnipeg is a central trucking hub and with our negotiated discounts, our customers enjoy the lowest freight rates available, whether shipping from our warehouse or direct from a factory.

Originally a division of Empire Sheet Metal Mfg. Co. Ltd., one of Canada’s oldest manufacturers of HVAC fittings and custom sheet metal products at the time, Empire’s first machinery catalogue was published in 1987. We built our new building at our current location and moved in December 2006.

Empire proudly distributes quality Canadian, U.S. and European sheet metal and metal fabricating equipment across North America. Empire is the exclusive distributor for several lines of equipment, offering our customers very competitive prices. Empire offers a full range of machinery service, installation and training with our in-house technicians. Used equipment is thoroughly checked, reconditioned and tested in our shop and is covered by Empire’s 30 Day Used Equipment Warranty.
