“What I value the most is that they can get the parts and get us going quickly. Sometimes there is an issue with a particular part. But we’re never down more than a day with ELRUS. That is really important to us.”

Doug F, Doug Folden Trucking Ltd, Melfort, SK Nov/18

“What I value most about dealing with ELRUS is that I get what I ask for. There is no run around. If I have a problem, or I am not sure what I am looking for, the guys help me out with that too.”

Dave M, S.W. Weeks Construction Ltd, New Glasgow, NS Nov/18

“I can get what I need when I need it. That’s why I keep coming back to ELRUS. They are the main people to call for parts.”

Troy G, J.E. Nash Enterprises Ltd, Slave Lake, AB Nov/18

“What I value about ELRUS is the amount of knowledge that the team has, and the service quality. They can help us out of any bind any time. Not many other crushing suppliers can do that, and walk you through a problem even over the phone. That is rare.”

Mike M, Kilgore Companies, Salt Lake City, UT Nov/18

“What I value the most is no breakdowns. We have a lot less breakdowns because of how well the ELRUS equipment is built.”

What I value the most from ELRUS is the ease of communications with Jim. I never feel like I’m lost in the dark wondering about my order.”

Jorden, Goodnight Construction Inc, Monroe, WA Nov/18

“What I value about ELRUS is the relationships. Jared and the other sales guys are great to work with. Something else I value about ELRUS is that I live in a small town between Prince Albert and Saskatoon, and I can get to ELRUS fairly quickly if I need to get parts. Sometimes we order parts in the morning and they arrive in the afternoon.”

Kevin P, Snake Lake Construction, Prince Albert, SK Oct/18

“What I value about ELRUS is their staff’s knowledge, and their ability to give us the knowledge. For example, when we’ve been running our equipment wrong, giving us tips and helping us out. A lot of the equipment we have here is one time equipment so we don’t have the knowledge internally about it.”

Todd M, Leduc, AB Oct/18

“What I value the most was getting the order correct and the knowledge of the ELRUS staff. I chose ELRUS because of the availability and price.”

Rick W, Rrox Aggregates Ltd, Sherwood Park, AB Oct/18

Jay D, Dufferin Aggregate-Mill Creek, Mill Creek, ON Sep/18

Slade G, Van-Isle Aggregate, Nanaimo, BC Sep/18

“The tower leaked water when it rained and it leaked into the control van. Brent with ELRUS came out to do a repair to a seal where the leak was. What I value the most from this experience was working with Curt at ELRUS, who I dealt with for this purchase. He made everything simple.”

What I value the most is the good friendly service. I have dealt with Mike quite a bit too over the years, and there is always service with a smile.”

Geoff W, Coast Aggregates Ltd, Squamish, BC Aug/18

“The longevity and durability of the conveyors has me choose ELRUS. It all starts with customer service. If that isn’t there, then you don’t care about what you are purchasing. It is a cut throat industry. We have used ELRUS products for many years. We have an awesome relationship with ELRUS. If I have an issue, it is dealt with. They give me an answer right away. In this day and age, customer service is so important. ELRUS definitely tries hard. Their people put in 100% effort.”

Joe P, APS Aggregate Services Inc, Kitchener, ON Aug/18

“I like the ELRUS equipment. I appreciate the fact that they are family owned, not a multinational. ELRUS equipment is made in Canada. Overall we’ve had good experiences with ELRUS over the years. The main reason we buy ELRUS is the long term relationship we’ve had with them. That was the biggest determining factor.”

Lloyd G, Butler Bros Supplies Ltd, Duncan, BC Aug/18

“We’ve known about ELRUS in the industry, by reputation. We decided to try a different line of parts than what we getting before. We did get better quality parts from ELRUS, and for us the service is also very valuable. Better parts means better wear and tear for our equipment and less down time.”

Shane B, Wheeler Rock Products, Wapato, WA Aug/18

“ELRUS has treated me well over the years. I value the reliable equipment, and the people are great, they treat me well and we have a good relationship. And in terms of pricing, we used to buy belts from other sources, but then we checked out ELRUS and they are actually cheaper with ELRUS.”

Lyle W, Venture Construction Inc, Martensville, SK Jun/18

“What I value is that ELRUS gets a good job done for a fair price. If the work varies from their original quote, they call and ask us about it. And if something isn’t right, they will come back and make it right. I have been dealing with ELRUS for 10 years in Alberta, and in Ontario since the late eighties, so I know how consistent they are. We just bought a jaw screen and a tower van from ELRUS.”

Gary G, Aecon Transportation West Ltd, Calgary, AB Jun/18

Morley L, Swayze Concrete Ltd, Weyburn, SK Apr/18

Dean B, Associated Aggregates Inc, Falun, AB Mar/18

“The communication with the ELRUS people is what I value, especially if you run into an issue. Right now, we are in rebuild mode. We went to their competition and got prices.

Warren D, Steep Rock Ltd, Medicine Hat, AB Feb/18

Mike R, Formation Capital Corporation, Salmon, ID Feb/18

“The experience of the ELRUS staff is what I value the most. If they have a new guy, they will pair him up with someone that has experience. If they don’t know something, they know where to go to ask. They even flew a guy out of Calgary to do a job for us.”

Lloyd G, Butler Bros Supplies Ltd, Duncan, BC Feb/18

“What I value the most from ELRUS is that they are willing to make things right. If something goes wrong, or they send the wrong part, they don’t hesitate to make it right. And quickly too.”

Jody B, Lafarge-Central Agg, Abbotsford, BC Feb/18

“What I value the most about ELRUS is the relationships with their staff. And when I ask for a quote, it is as honest as it can be. They put forth a great effort to match or better other quotes that I get. What Kurt and Kyle do is they try to get me the best price possible that works for me and for them. And I respect that too. Other companies only look at their bottom line but ELRUS understands. For most of what we need, ELRUS does give us the best rate. Most of our parts we get from ELRUS. I also consider the service and shipping factors in the price of things, and ELRUS really shines there. Between Kurt and Kyle, they are doing an excellent job.”

Joe P, Aggregate Processing Services, Kitchener, ON Jan/18

“Their customer service is what I value the most about ELRUS. They are always helpful and friendly and they do all that they can to get us what we need. I enjoy dealing with them.”

Page C, Martin Marietta, Colorado Springs, CO Jan/18

“What I value the most with ELRUS is that the equipment I have leased is very high quality. I hope I can buy an ELRUS crusher. I like the conveyors and the jaw, the cone, I really liked the tower too. I like the way things plug in real quick, and the fuel tank on the gen set. I don’t think you can buy a stronger crusher than ELRUS. I think ELRUS equipment is a whole lot stronger than the competition. I’m impressed with how much the ELRUS crusher puts out.”

Don S, Harold Sorensen Trucking, Toledo, WA Jan/18

“What I value the most from my experience with ELRUS is their honesty. Everything has been good with ELRUS. We’ve never had any issues with them.”

John M, Orca Sand & Gravel Ltd, Port McNeill, BC Jan/18

Gregor B, Westhills Aggregates Ltd, Penticton, BC Jan/18

“Good management there, and their people seem to really treat the little guy the same as they treat the big guy. We notice the difference with others. We order lots of parts from ELRUS and they have always been top notch in dealing with us. We bought half the crusher from ELRUS. We have their tower, jaw and cone, and we get parts and service from them. Their equipment has been really good for us.”

Dale S, Nemadar Ranch Ltd, High Prairie, AB Jan/18

Kevin M, Baymag Inc, Exshaw, AB Dec/17

“ELRUS employees are helpful and have a lot of technical knowledge.”

Brad W, Walker Sand & Gravel, Canon City, CO Dec/17

Paul S, West Central Contracting Ltd, Hinton, AB Dec/17

“ELRUS has a good product and I really like Ron, he is straight shooter. If they can have a good product, and deliver on it and not oversell it, then I’m happy.”

Mark O, Mill Creek Sand & Gravel, Redwater, AB Nov/17

“ELRUS has been around a long time. I value their knowledge of the crushing industry. They have good products and they are hooked up with all top notch equipment brands. Ron at ELRUS sold me the jaw that is double the size of my old one, so my production has probably gone up by 1/3 or 1/2.”

Albert L, Ruel Concrete, Peace River, AB Nov/17

“The people at ELRUS and their service is what I value. Even if their pricing is a little out, and I mention it, they will straighten it out. They get stuff for me in a timely manner.

Ron F, Sigfusson Northern, Lundar, MB Nov/17

“Kevin’s knowledge, and all the ELRUS tech’s knowledge is valuable to me. They know their own products really well and the ones they represent, in the way a dealer should.”

Mike S, CEMEX, Vancouver, WA Oct/17

Jeff C, R.W. Tomlinson Limited, Ottawa, ON Oct/17

Wayne A, LTL Contracting Ltd, Shuniah, ON Sep/17

“What I value the most from the experience with ELRUS is that we got a machine that performed the way they promised it would. We were just calculating the a difference the ELRUS cone crusher has made in productivity recently and we are up about 10% in production.”

Andrew R, R.W. Tomlinson Limited, Ottawa, ON Sep/17

“With the new ELRUS equipment, we have increased our production by 25% and our downtime has really been almost nothing. We are doing a lot of work with that cone – it is doing the work of two cones.”

Brian W, Wood’s Crushing and Hauling Inc, Sandpoint, ID Sep/17

“I value the general knowledge in the company. ELRUS people know a lot about equipment and parts. And if the person I talk to doesn’t know, there is someone in the company they can call and get the information. That’s what I mean by getting the support that we need.”

Lloyd G, Butler Bros Supplies Ltd, Duncan, BC Aug/17

Robert F, B.R. Fulton Construction Ltd, Horton, ON Jul/17

“What I value about ELRUS is the fact that you can call them and ask them about the basics for repairing something. They will help you if you need it. We are a long ways away from them and we do almost all our own repairs. But they will give us help on the phone if we need it. The only times we need their help with repairs is if it is because of an electronics issue, or a hydraulic failure.”

Andy, Ray – Ann Transport Ltd, Powerview-Pine Falls, MB Jul/17

“The ELRUS personnel were extremely helpful.”

Hugh H, Cee-Jay Projects Ltd, Kelowna, BC Jul/17

Joey W, Werbicki Bros. Hauling Ltd, The Pas, MB Jun/17

“We haven’t had down time. Production levels have been exceeded. I am very satisfied with the ELRUS product. The model I have now is quite a bit bigger than the previous one so in that sense, it is to be expected that productivity has increased. I can’t really say a percentage but it is exceeding production levels and I’m really happy with it.”

Joey W, Werbicki Bros. Hauling Ltd, The Pas, MB Jun/17

“What I value the most from ELRUS is their competitiveness and the knowledge of their staff.”

Lee, C & B Stirling Enterprises, Grandview, MB Jun/17

“I value the service, just how quick and thorough ELRUS is to get us what we need. We are part of the mining industry, so when something goes wrong, we need parts and service immediately, as fast as possible. ELRUS has a way to find or make a part for us quickly. We can get the equipment cheaper but then we would have to order parts off shore, and that just doesn’t work in our industry.”

Ed K, Kode Contracting Ltd, Prince George, BC May/17

“I value the good quality products and good people to work with, and they build good equipment. I would buy another ELRUS piece of equipment when I need one.”

John Z, Otter Creek Resources Ltd, Sechelt, BC May/17

“We bought this cone originally a long time ago. Roly, the Founder of ELRUS, set us up with a spread in the 80s. We had the chassis and purchased a new cone. ELRUS bought it from us in June of last year. ELRUS modified it and we bought it back in December. Our relationship with ELRUS goes back 40 years. We’ve never had reason to go anywhere else.”

Terry M, Lawrence Meier Trucking Ltd, Dunmore, AB May/17

“What I value with ELRUS is their willingness to accommodate me by getting things for us quickly. They are very professional, and Mark went out of his way to get me a part I needed after hours.”

Jeremy W, Rrox Aggregates Ltd, Sherwood Park, AB May/17

“The staff at ELRUS are honest, and they have lots of experience. It means a lot when you can call a guy in the middle of the night. Brent will have an answer, he won’t leave you hanging. He has never failed to help me out.”

Art M, Pidherney’s Inc, Rocky Mountain House, AB May/17

“I would say ELRUS equipment has brought our productivity up by 50%. We value the personal relationships with the people at ELRUS. You can go in and sit down and talk to them on a one to one basis, ask questions and get ideas. We can’t really do that with any of our other suppliers. It’s not the same.”

Wayne R, Canada Building Materials, St. Mary’s, ON Apr/17

“I’m thinking because of this training by ELRUS, we have improved 50-100 tonnes per hour during operating hours. I’d have to go and check the numbers, but that’s what I am thinking it has been for us.”

Bevin, Iron Ore Company of Canada, Labrador City, NL May/17

“With ELRUS, every piece of equipment we have bought has arrived 2 weeks before the due date. And we have bought a lot of ELRUS equipment. We have three screens, a hopper and a cone. They’ve gotten all our business in the last 3 years and it’s because of the Saskatoon branch. I have never once gone there and they didn’t have the parts that I needed. They are a good bunch of guys.”

Grant M., K. McIntosh and Sons, Outlook, SK Apr/17

“What I value the most is the durability of the ELRUS machine.”

Mario T, Alvin Caldwell Sand and Gravel, New Liskeard, ON Apr/17

Rick B, Pioneer Construction Ltd, Copper Cliff, ON Apr/17

“ELRUS equipment works the way it is supposed to. It is dependable, lasts a long time, is user friendly and maintenance friendly. We have less down time which is very important. Their staff are definitely very helpful. I was on the phone with Kurt today in fact. They give us excellent support.”

Brent M, Canada Building Materials, St. Mary’s, ON Apr/17

“We bought a new cone from them 6 years ago, and that is a bearing cone or a bushing cone which I prefer. ELRUS is the best, so that’s why we order everything now from ELRUS.”

Derrick G, Zenith Paving Ltd. Brandon, MB Apr/17

“What I value the most is ELRUS’ ability and openness to work with us, and to get us what we need.”

Ron M, Martin Bros. Crushing Ltd, Listowel, ON Apr/17

“Mike and Dawson at ELRUS are always so helpful. If I have a problem, Mike will come out here or have someone else come out – even if it is just consulting. The parts department I can call on the weekend and they will answer the phone. That’s pretty good service.”

Sven L, Fraser Valley Aggregates, Surrey, BC Mar/17

“I value ELRUS customer service. Customer experience is essential. The guys are easy to work with and knowledgeable, and I have asked pretty ridiculous questions and they answer those questions. If they don’t have the answers they get them. Pricing is next, and the quality of their equipment and parts.”

Joe P, Aggregate Processing Services, Kitchener, ON Mar/17

“We went from old garbage equipment that would do 900 tonnes a day to our shiny white current ELRUS plant which does 500 tonnes an hour. That specific cone plant doubled production from 220 per hour to 350 – 450 tonnes per hour. I value the product quality and the quality of the ELRUS sales people.”

John C, Flesherton Concrete, Flesherton, ON Mar/17

“Greg Y gets a 7 out of 5! He is excellent. I have a ton of ELRUS equipment. I just bought another screen deck from them.”

John C, Flesherton Concrete, Flesherton, ON Mar/17

“ELRUS has good service, the equipment is good and I like everybody there. Mike and Dawson both been very helpful and are really great to work with. Purchasing this second conveyor was 100% because of how good the first one has been for us. The equipment is reliable. The parts department I can call on the weekend and they will answer the phone. That’s pretty good service.”

Sven L, Fraser Valley Aggregates, Surrey, BC Mar/17

“ELRUS equipment is built for the province of Saskatchewan for the type of equipment we run and the type of material we crush. We crush river rock, and the different applications we have, ELRUS understands. Their service is good and they understand Saskatchewan contractors. The other outfits don’t. That’s the reason ELRUS has got the market in this province.”

Shawn M, Bernt Gilbertson Enterprises, Richards Landing, ON Mar/17

“The relationships are what I value at ELRUS. They help me out a lot and have a lot of knowledge. They answer questions over the phone and they are not afraid to share their knowledge.”

Jack V, County of St. Paul No. 19, St, Paul, AB Mar/17

“What I value the most about ELRUS is the parts and the people, but it is the service that really makes me happy. They get the right parts on time. My crusher is super old and not easy to get parts for. I am impressed how they have been able to get stuff, even out of the US for me quickly.”

Tyrell H, Jake-Jay Construction Ltd, Revelstoke, BC Mar/17

“We have definitely had more crushing time and less down time. I’d say it has been a 70% increase in productivity with the feeder screen plant from ELRUS.”

Kent N, Valley Rock Construction, Birtle, MB Mar/17

“I would say our productivity has increased by 40% with the ELRUS jaw crusher. We weren’t really crushing in the past, so our sorting process is a lot quicker now because we are putting it through the crusher.”

William B, Budget Environmental Disposal, Hamilton, ON Mar/17

“Parts availability is very important to us, and the good staff and prompt service at ELRUS is what we value.”

Merritt S, Wheatland Aggregates Ltd, Lafleche, SK Feb/17

“For us, down time is very costly so I appreciate the fact that you can depend upon ELRUS to do what they can as quick as they can.”

Gwen S, W.D. Smith Gravel Services, Grovedale, AB Feb/17

“I value the ability to have direct communication and also, ELRUS’ willingness to share their experience and knowledge. We are 500 miles north of Edmonton, and we would have been down a lot longer with that equipment if it wasn’t for ELRUS helping with the repair over the phone.”

John, Unity Sand and Gravel Ltd, La Crête, AB Feb/17

“This screen plant was what we needed. It’s been working fine for us.”

Greg B, Vihar Construction Ltd, Smithers, BC Dec/16

“ELRUS equipment is better than what we had. It’s not wearing out, and maintenance is low. I value the professionalism of ELRUS.”

Glenn S, 644735 Ontario Ltd (Snow Bros), Erin, ON Nov/16

“I’ve been in this business for 20 years, and ELRUS’ equipment is heavier built, better built, and more thought through. When you’re buying equipment, it is better not to buy the cheaper one because it will cost you more over the long run with maintenance costs. ELRUS will run for years.”

Demetrius T, Geransky Brothers Construction, Martensville, SK Nov/16

“ELRUS knows my equipment and what I’m expecting of them. We have a good relationship. They will resolve the issues 99% of the time. They’re very good about that.”

Noel, Kode Contracting Ltd, Prince George, BC Nov/16

“ELRUS is the biggest crushing equipment company and they have the best quality.”

Doug F, Doug Folden Trucking Ltd, Melfort, SK Nov/16

“I value the personal touch and good availability of parts. ELRUS has been excellent to deal with over the years.”

Bill H, Holt Transport, Irma, AB Nov/16

“ELRUS equipment has increased our productivity. We have more uptime, less downtime and more tons at the end of the day. I’d say it has increased our tonnage by at least 10%. I value the learning we gain from ELRUS. There is always something new and improved coming along, and we like to have top of the line technology and leading edge equipment.”

Adam T, The Sarjeant Co. LTD, Barrie, ON Oct/16

“The ability to work with the people at ELRUS is what I value. They won’t give away my secrets to other companies. Knowing that gives me peace of mind.”

Zach R, R.F. Klein & Sons Ltd, Prince George, BC Oct/16

“I value the parts, the knowledge, the service and the availability of the parts at ELRUS. I told the owner of their competitor why I was unhappy with them because his staff let me down. I have no problem going to ELRUS for Sandvik parts. I even have approval from Sandvik headquarters to deal with ELRUS Ontario. I am going where the service and the availability is.”

Richard G, Tli Cho Landtran Transport Ltd, Yellowknife, NT Oct/16

“ELRUS makes good equipment.”

Brody, Grimshaw Gravel Sales, Grimshaw, AB Sep/16

“We bought the cone plant from ELRUS, and the computer on it is second to none in productivity. It gains you 15 years of knowledge because you can get it in specs. I run it mostly on automatic and I know you can get a little bit more production if you go out of automatic. But they have a really good system with that computer. ELRUS is sometimes a bit higher priced but the service we get is also second to none. Also, ELRUS equipment holds its value better because it’s made better.”

Grant M, K.McIntosh and Sons, Outlook, SK Sep/16

“We are a growing company. We now have four complete crushers, and almost all our equipment is ELRUS now. We were loyal to their competitor but since we started buying ELRUS equipment in 2013, I think we’ve spent over $2 million, and we’ve got more big purchases coming up. We’ve noticed a difference between ELRUS and their competitor. When ELRUS says they are going to do something, they have it done when they say so.”

Grant M, K.McIntosh and Sons, Outlook, SK Sep/16

“ELRUS is quick, knowledgeable, and they have provided us with excellent service. They have saved us from having down time, and that is really important to us.”

Martin B, Dufferin Aggregates, division of Holcim, Cambridge, ON Sep/16

“We are migrating to more spec and technical work, and ELRUS has been very helpful to us with the most recent job. We are seeing a lot of opportunity on the horizon with the Dam project. There will be a lot of roads for that project. So lots of building and infrastructure projects are going to put a lot of people to work in BC.”

Russ Y, Pine River Holdings Ltd, Chetwynd, BC Sep/16

“ELRUS is quick, knowledgeable, and they have provided us with excellent service. They have saved us from having down time, and that is really important to us.”

Martin B, Dufferin Aggregates, division of Holcim, Cambridge, ON Sep/16

“The new ELRUS equipment has definitely increased our productivity. I would say it has improved our crushing time by 20%. What I value the most about ELRUS is their service, and their knowledge and accessibility. I base a lot on quality of service because time is money in this industry. If you need repairs done, and they get done quickly, that means a lot.”

Paul S, West Central Contracting Ltd, Hinton, AB Aug/16

“What I value the most is the regional sales representative, Russ, who comes to see us. He comes by regularly and talks to us. That is ELRUS’ biggest strong point as far as I’m concerned. We are so far from a big city, and resources, so if someone comes to us with resources, it means a lot.”

Shane, Allen Rock Products, Cove, Utah Aug/16

“More than anything I value their knowledge. If I take some old part in there that no one has seen in twenty years, the guys at ELRUS have seen it before. They’ve seen a lot of parts in their time and they know their stuff.”

Rob, Kerridge Concrete Ltd, Calgary, AB Aug/16

“The ELRUS conveyor has vastly improved our productivity! Because we are a feedlot, and before the conveyor, we were working from 8:00-5:00 with three feed trucks. Now with the ELRUS conveyor, we can do the job from 8:00-3:00 with one truck. It has made a huge difference for us.”

Matt M, Buffalo Plains Cattle Company, Moose Jaw, SK Jul/16

“What I value the most is the fit and finishing of the plant. It is much better than the equipment we have bought from other companies. A lot of thought has been put into how parts can be replaced, and it is much easier for my staff to work on.”

Larry W, Westcan Bulk Transport Ltd, Edmonton, AB Jul/16

“Well I do deal with other suppliers but from my vantage point, ELRUS is the best. When we first started this plant, the boss bought cheaper equipment, and over the years we have replaced most of it with ELRUS. Now we are about 90% ELRUS because it lasts longer. ELRUS is way better quality equipment, way easier to work on and it’s more operator-friendly. It is easier to maintain and it’s built for the long run.”

Demetrius T, Geransky Brothers Construction, Martensville, SK Jul/16

“What I value most about ELRUS is that when you call, there is never a dead end. There is always someone there who can help you with a problem. There’s no head-scratching. There’s always someone who will have an idea about how to solve your problem, or who knows someone to call.”

Leon S, Westlake Paving & Agg. Ltd, Kelowna, BC Jul/16

“I think ELRUS is one of the best suppliers on the market. I value being able to get the ELRUS equipment fairly quickly.”

Trent S, Silver Eagle Excavation, Biggar, SK Jun/16

“I value knowing the parts are available, and the parts are good quality. And the people at ELRUS are good: Lloyd, Troy, and George in Calgary too. They are all good guys.”

Ken F, Hopkins Construction (Lacombe) Ltd, Lacombe, AB Jun/16

“Accessibility – ELRUS is in a good location. I value the quality workmanship done by Thor. Another thing is that ELRUS staff go out of their way to be friends.”

Ted P, Tedlon Services Ltd, Thompson, MB Jun/16

“I value that ELRUS is a family run company, they are personable and have good equipment. We have had good experiences with them over the years.”

Ryan B, Ken Beatty Construction, Erickson, MB Jun/16

“I value ELRUS’ communication, their service and their parts availability. Their parts inventory is the biggest thing. We can do most of the service work ourselves but without parts we are screwed. That is where ELRUS really shines. If Saskatoon doesn’t have the parts, Calgary or Edmonton will. It is only a day away in that case. Other companies can sell equipment but they cannot sell the parts.”

Lyle W, Venture Construction Inc, Martensville, SK May/16

“I think what I value most can best be described as good solid and honest business relationship. ELRUS is a good supplier and they are committed to the business and the relationships. They have also hired very well and have retained their people for a long time. I think their people are the most significant asset they have – they are committed and have a lot of experience.”

Rick K, Kode Contracting Ltd, Prince George, BC May/16

“The level of professionalism has been good. ELRUS has kept their word. There has been a steady continuity of service. Once we got the business relationship and terms setup, they have been consistent. That is valuable to us.”

Lakeram R, Rosebel Gold Mines N.V., Suriname, SA May/16

“We recently had some problems with some screens and the salesperson at ELRUS went above and beyond for us to make it right. Hats off to Mike, he is doing a great job of leading the Surrey group. He is establishing a foundation for them to grow. He is decisive and his staff have a clear direction on building relationships with customers.”

Colin Herbert, Mainland Sand & Gravel ULC, Surrey, BC May/16

“I value the equipment we purchased from ELRUS. It is a good unit, it is low maintenance. We have purchased the best. The Feeder Screen is a good quality machine. We actually flew down to Calgary to look at it while it was being built. We looked at all the equipment they were building and ours is not that big but we have had no problems with it.”

Clarence M, Community Government of Wekweeti, NT Apr/16

“ELRUS parts are good – they don’t cut corners. We are happy with their product and their service. It is the quality of product that we value the most.”

Lenny K, Eagle Rock Construction Ltd, Vernon, BC Apr/16

“ELRUS’ equipment has increased our productivity. Their equipment is easier to run and requires less maintenance. The relationship and the support from ELRUS is valuable.”

Lee W, Joe Kerr Limited, Wingham, ON Mar/16

“If we have any problems, ELRUS has come out and given us a hand. We have some new staff this year, so ELRUS is going to send out a Tech to help teach our new guys. It is better having ELRUS teach our new guys than our older staff doing it. We want them to learn it right.”

Larry Z, County of St. Paul No. 19, AB Mar/16

“We went from a three month rental to a six month rental and ELRUS was understanding and helpful to make it happen.”

Dave R, Priestly Demolition, King City, ON Feb/16

“ELRUS is professional and they delivered what they committed to. We have bought two big pieces in the last few years and it was what we expected. For the Control Tower, we have had no problems. After the bid we had to ask a lot of questions and Marshall answered them right away. We wanted delivery so they sent out a mechanic to address it and didn’t charge us for it. That was very helpful.”

Romeo T, City of Calgary, Feb/16

“As a purchaser, I really like the ELRUS sales staff. They are not pushy or arrogant, they are just regular guys. If I need something, Dawson is here. He returns my calls and I really get the impression that he values his customers. To me, that goes a long way.”

Rick O, Jack Cewe Ltd, Coquitlam, BC Feb/16

“I would agree that I purchased the best equipment on the market. In this situation, having sourced the Control Van from ELRUS, we got what we needed and we absolutely got what we wanted. I value the quality and features of the equipment from ELRUS. Regarding the Trailer, the tower is great. We were looking for the ability to upsize our capability. We wanted the ability to add more conveyors, so we needed more buttons and boxes to hook into. This ELRUS Control Van is great as it gives us the freedom to add more belts as our needs require.”

Frank S, City of Calgary, Feb/16

“The guys at ELRUS and the relationship with the employees is what we value. What I have noticed over their competitors is their training. We just bought a new Tower and ELRUS will work with us if our payment is a week late and we tell them about it. If you are honest with them, there is no issue. That is really helpful for a smaller operator like us.”

Darryl W, Blue Star Construction Ltd, Brandon, MB Jan/16

“It is the commitment to the customer that we value. ELRUS is committed to getting the parts to us in a timely manner and at a competitive price.”

Allan S, Russell Redi Mix Concrete, Russell, MB Jan/16

“I have dealt with ELRUS for 30 years and my father dealt with them 10 years before that. I was comfortable to show them what I needed and they obliged with the design I needed. ELRUS is a family owned operation and they are also a Canadian company. We buy local, then we buy North American. If enough of us do it, it will make a difference.”

Lloyd G, Butler Bros Supplies LTD, Duncan, BC Jan/16

“Yes, ELRUS’ equipment certainly has increased our productivity. We got a quote for getting material crushed and one company quoted between $800K and $1,000K. They would have to bring in equipment and leave it here for the summer. We ended up buying the equipment from ELRUS for $300K, it did the job and we still own the equipment. It is a great thing. Ron with ELRUS was very professional. In fact every time we asked Ron a question, he would get back to us. Initially, he would call by phone and if I wasn’t available, he would follow-up by email immediately. The equipment design Ron put together met our requirements.”

Judal D, Community Government of Gameti, Gameti, NT Jan/16

“ELRUS gives us exceptional service for the most part. Kurt does a good job on getting us parts – that means a lot to us. He can find the parts and if that means we have to drive, it is not a problem.”

Blaine B, Aggregate Processing Services, Kitchener, ON Dec/15

“Overall, we are very happy with ELRUS. Since Jared has taken over, it has been more ‘hands on’ and I have to say that I like that a lot. He is local, he has a strong knowledge and understanding and he seems to be able to get a lot done.”

R McIntosh, McIntosh Crushing & Aggregate, Montmartre, SK Dec/15

“ELRUS has been great – I only have good things to say about them. We had been dealing with them for 4 or 5 years previously. ELRUS is a company that comes back with solutions. If we are needing a part, they will take the parts off a new piece of equipment to keep us going. They are good to work with and they don’t nickle and dime us.”

Ross A, Buffalo Gravel Corp, Grande Prairie, AB Nov/15

“I value the working relationship and the equipment with ELRUS.”

Lenny G, Lafarge Canada Inc, Ft. McMurray, AB Nov/15

“So far, the service from ELRUS has been good. The fact that we were ‘opening the door’ to another manufacturer and group of guys to deal with was important. It just gives us another option and as a producer, that is a good thing.”

Denis O, Oldcastle Materials,
Grand Junction, CO Sep/15

“I value the communication from ELRUS, which has been good.”

Danny K, Oldcastle Materials,

Cory P, Burnco Rock Products Ltd,

“We have had a good experience with ELRUS both on parts and equipment.”

Nick O, Nova Construction Ltd,

C Young, Robert E. Young Construction,
Selwyn, ON June/15

“I think that ELRUS has a nice package to offer as a whole. I think location has a lot to do it with it for us and the equipment they have. We have tended to be buying more equipment and parts from them recently and I think that has something to do with what the company is stocking.”

M Black, Tri-City Materials,
Petersburg, ON May/15

“ELRUS Aggregates’ honesty is what I value the most. Ron is enjoyable to do business with.”

M Banner, Rickard Excavation,
Fort McMurray, AB May/15

“ELRUS offers great support and good equipment. They put together a nice package for us. ELRUS is a company that is not full of BS. They are truthful and do not over claim their equipment’s product ability. In fact, they told me to pull back when my expectations became too optimistic and I appreciated that. Other suppliers will tell me that their machines can produce amazingly, but it doesn’t seem doable. The crushing industry has so many variables that impact production.”

D Fortner, BBE Hydro Constuctors LP,
Keeyask, MB Apr/15

“I value ELRUS’ parts availability as they will do a lot for us. They did what we asked and we were going within a day. That was good service. I think that we have at least 70% of his equipment from ELRUS – jaws, cones, screen decks, you name it. ELRUS equipment is easy to work with and on.”

C Fay, Potzus Ltd,

“I appreciate the productivity that I get from our MS612 Screen Deck. I can pump a lot of product through it and the screens are easy to change. I don’t need a small person on site to get in between the screens like I would on a 3 deck screen plant. What I value the most about ELRUS Aggregates is their customer service and equipment reliability.”
