About Western Mechanical Services

First in our Industry and Region

Western Mechanical Services was the first independent testing and balancing agency in Western Canada. We were established in 1958 and reorganized in 1977.

Western Mechanical Services originally started as Western Meter Company. We were the first to build instruments and equipment for measuring mechanical systems – including the Measurell, electric rotating vane anemometer, and hydronic differential pressure meters. Eventually we were asked by consultants to use our knowledge of the instrumentation to help measure and balance systems. This led to the creation of Western Mechanical Services.
