In April of 2015 Fortis received a failed balderson hitch for scoop tram attachment from Agrium Potash mine. We were tasked with fabricating a replacement balderson hitch for scoop tram. Not only did we deliver the fabricated and machined part on time, but we included a custom engineering design betterment which will improve reliability and reduce life cycle costs. We then followed up to ensure all was well after shipping the product back to site. This is what Agrium had to say when we followed up with them, "We just put one on yesterday and we did not even need butter to slide it into place. It was perfect!" What a great testimonial from Agrium on the excellent work our machine shop and welding shop competed!
Here is a picture of the balderson hitch Fortis fabricated:
