About Western Sales (1986) Ltd. www.westernsales.ca

Since 1947, Western Sales has developed a culture of ‘Customer Service’. The success of Western Sales is not determined by sales volume. The success of Western Sales is gauged by the minimum amount of down-time with their John Deere equipment that our valued customers experience in the critical seasons of planting and harvest. We are staffed with highly trained parts and service technicians that work together as a team to keep our customers in the field. Many changes have come and gone over the years, but one thing remains constant, Western Sales’ commitment to customer satisfaction, before and after the sale is made. We are proud to have achieved Platinum Status again, in this, our ninth year of being recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.
