Heavy equipment service center, Cummins Western Canada, has embarked on building a new facility in Sparwood.  The new building will be located on Sparwood Drive, next to PJB Cranes, and across from their current location.

Construction is being performed by Scott Builders Inc., of Calgary—initial ground work and footings are being installed.

Cummins Western Canada in Sparwood is a field-service branch with a total of 29 employees. The branch is responsible for commissioning and servicing the high-horsepower diesel engines that power large equipment—primarily haul trucks—at all five of the coal mines owned by Teck in the Elk Valley.

To meet the growing demands of the Elk Valley mining industry, the company has had plans to expand the branch in Sparwood for the last couple of years. With the expansion underway, the new facility will be a complete parts support and service depot for Western Canada Cummins in the Elk Valley.
