In 1973 TS&M Supply
was purchased by three local Estevan businessmen,
and in 1976 took on a fourth owner. It would be
interesting to know if these four men’s dreams
and expectations for their little company came anywhere
close to the reality that TS&M Supply grew into.
Their business philosophy was simple. Complete dedication
to both product knowledge and customer service.
This is still the cornerstone for TS&M Supply’s
continuing success today.
Since 1973 TS&M
has worked as a distributor for Centron Fiberglass
products in Canada. Originally pipe was inventoried
and sold through our location in Estevan, Sask.
With the success that TS&M was having in Saskatchewan
with the Centron products and selling more pipe
into Alberta they decided to expand their operation
and open a new location in Provost, AB 1999. They
also expanded their business to Southern Alberta
in 2001 which is now located in Redcliff, AB (since
In January 1997 TS&M
Supply was sold to a larger chain of stores, and
sold once again in 1998. It is now part of the National
Oilwell Varco distribution chain of stores. Although
it is now owned by a larger chain of stores, TS&M
has maintained its local identity and is still managed
by a local group of people. Its local head office
remains in Estevan; where the whole business originated
so many years ago.
Perhaps one of the
biggest factors in setting TS&M Supply apart
from the competition is its firm belief in supporting
their community at a local level. They are very
proud of the fact that they are now, and have always
been, a very active Community Leader and supporter.
Fortunately, NOV shares this belief and has allowed
them to continue what they started so many years
Although it began
as a one store business, TS&M Supply has currently
expanded into fourteen locations; seven of which
are oilfield supply stores, and four of which are
industrial supply stores and three fiberglass pipe
locations. They now have branches in Saskatchewan,
Manitoba, Alberta & Ontario, currently employing
about 125 people. Through its evolution from a one
store business in 1973, TS&M Supply remains
a solid leader in the industry today. This can be
accredited to its local management team and utilization
of the vast resources of National Oilwell Varco.
TS&M Supply distributes
a full line of oilfield & industrial products.
It provides service, repair & technical assistance
for Centron fiberglass, bottom-hole pumps, PC pumps,
Multiplex pumps, and safety equipment. It also has
a full service shop for pumps, valves, meters, gauges,
At the end of the
day, TS&M Supply’s success can all be
traced back to the original business philosophy
that is still followed today; 100% dedication to
product knowledge and customer service!!
