Black Cat Blades Ltd. began manufacturing cutting edges in Edmonton Alberta in 1968. In the following decade as machine size and horsepower increased, Black Cat invested heavily in the latest technology and equipment to produce higher quality, harder, tougher “Through Hardened” edges. Many other manufacturers during that time were clinging to the older technology, making their carbon edges thicker to compensate for the lack of toughness. That dedication to being an industry leader fueled the company’s growth and continues today. Black Cat Blades now operates multiple production facilities in Canada and China and distributes their industry leading products worldwide.
In 2003 Black Cat began to develop an offering of complementary cast wear parts to offer a broader range of parts for their distributors. Investing heavily in research and development, design, and quality assurance, the company is determined to develop a “first-tier” product offering. The range of these parts grew quickly and now includes a large variety of bucket teeth and adapters, ripper teeth, bucket lip and sidebar protection items, bull dozer end bits, half arrow shaped blades and segments, and numerous other complimentary wear parts for a broad range of applications
The entire team at Black Cat Blades Ltd. is committed to meeting or exceeding the needs of their customers by providing superior quality, service and product support. The first paragraph of the company’s culture statement defines the commitment: “Our culture is driven by the rewards of honesty, integrity, trust and high achievement with respect for each other, our assets and our environment. These values will not be compromised for profit.”
