Letter of Introduction
Fortis is a privately owned company with its head office in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan Canada. Fortis has grown and evolved from its parent company, Northern Strands Co. Ltd. Fortis is comprised of three major divisions – Mining, Engineering and Manufacturing delivering an integrated and all-in-one approach to solving our clients’ needs.
The expansion of the mining industry in Saskatchewan contributed to the growth and evolution of Fortis. We successfully forged relationships with a number of customers including Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan, Agrium, Mosaic, Cameco, Nyrstar, Rio Tinto, Agnico, AMC Mining and other mining service companies. Geographically, Fortis has completed projects in Saskatchewan, Alberta, British Columbia as well as international locations. Using an experienced and highly qualified workforce Fortis delivers specialized consulting and project services with the highest safety and quality standards to its customers.
Our Manufacturing Division consists of a CWB Certified Metal Fabrication department and Machine shop which is outfitted with manual and CNC machines. We have become a trusted supplier for mine shaft components; designing, manufacturing and providing recertification of these assemblies and components for many mining operations. Due to increased demand for manufactured mining products in the summer of 2012, Fortis chose to maximize our manufacturing efficiency and productivity by establishing night shifts which continues today.
In June of 2013, Fortis passed the Certification Audit conducted by QAS International. Fortis has earned the rare distinction of simultaneously being certified for three different management system standards which includes ISO 9001, ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001. We are exceedingly proud of the commitment and teamwork of our employees in achieving these standards. Fortis has a QA & ISO Compliance Department which is committed to continuous improvement of products and services provided by Fortis. Over the past several years, Fortis has gained a tremendous amount of knowledge from its experience in its collaboration with local and international mine sites and companies. Fortis believes that its determination in creating an injury-free work environment through the ISO policies and procedures is evidence of its commitment to safety.
