About Scanada Group
The Scanada Group of Companies is a leading international suppliers of hydraulic jacking equipment and engineering services for vertical slipform and heavy-lift systems.
We house the largest fleet of hydraulic jacks in the world and offer an unparalleled level of experience and expertise, backed by a proven track record of success.
Scanada has the highest level of engineering expertise that comes only with decades of experience, employee retention,
the knowledge to manufacture and adapt equipment to specific jobs, and the on-site resource of skilled technician.
The company was founded in 1980, but several of Scanada's current employees, including its founder Thor Vikstrom, were employed by Scanada's predecessor company,
Heede International, the company that introduced hydraulic slipform systems and heavy lift climbing jacks to North and South America in the late 1940s.
Scanada's new and innovative methods for applying its equipment led to rapid growth of slipforming and jacking techniques in these markets and subsequent expansion into global markets.
