Charlie and Marjorie Smith started Combine World in 1986 as a salvage operation for combines and swathers. The business was then located on their farm 15 KM south of the town of Allan, Saskatchewan. At one point in the mid 1990's they were farming 4000 acres of grain land and operating the salvage business.
By the late 90's farms were moving from a family to corporate structure. This and consolidation in farm machinery dealerships were creating a new dynamic in agriculture food production and machinery sales businesses. By 2002 Charlie was putting his entire focus on building the machinery parts business into an enterprise that would be diverse in nature and meet the needs of the farmer of the future. This needed to include selling a wide variety of new parts as well as complete machinery sales. It also meant having a staff that was able to rebuild, repair, and value add to products and sell to customers.
Combine World has grown to the point of having 25 full time staff which include journeyman welders, mechanics, and parts and equipment salespeople.
Our competitive advantage is the ability to rebuild and repair equipment more efficiently therefore keeping waste to a minimum and costs lower. Combine World also sources many of its new parts factory direct and then sells to the end user, passing on savings while eliminating distributors and resellers.
The overall philosophy of the owners and leadership at Combine World is that we need to keep in mind that people are our customers. You will never call Combine World and get an answering machine. We will do what we say we will do. Our goal is to make your dealings with us the easiest most seamless and comfortable experience you encounter in the agriculture industry.
