FTLComm - Tisdale - November 3, 1999  

The 1999 Achievement for Business Excellence (ABEX) in the category of Physical Environment has been won by Tisdale's Northern Steel Industries.

This is an important recognition in Saskatchewan's business community especially since Northern Steel Industries wan an ABEX for job creation in 1997.

This year's award is for a business that demonstrates excellence in developing programs, products or services offering improvement for environmental purposes. The company's superior above ground storage tanks are environmentally friendly and in addition a real cost saver for companies using these specially designed containers. Northern Steel Industries work with double walled and completely clad tanks are also enormously successful and remarkable in the industry.
We have chosen to show off a standard product from Northern Steel Industries their portable skid tank used in bush road clearing and Northern construction. These really sturdy units are designed to be towed behind a cat in the worst of conditions and include tool boxes and support storage right on the skid unit.

Winning the ABEX award is a major accomplishment by this innovative and environmentally conscious company.

The new series of double walled fire tolerant tanks and the recognition by both Canadian and US government agencies of the extra-ordinary high quality workmanship and practical design continue to encourage Northern Steel Industries to continue to push the envelop of development and to product cost efficient and durable practical products.
