About Us

Our Story

Altex Industries Inc. was established in 2001 to provide shell and tube heat exchanger sales and service to the oil, gas, and petrochemical industries in Western Canada. We have steadily grown over the past twenty years and have expanded our product line to include air-cooled exchangers, sulphur condensers, waste-heat boilers, and Helixchangers.

Our field services division started with `four guys in a truck’ in 2003, but we can now employ over 1000 people during peak turnaround season.

Why we exist :

We love a challenge – We’re here to help you work through the stuff of nightmares!
