CanTorque founder Colin Livingston was captivated by racing from the first time that he saw it at age 10. As he only experienced racing through television it seemed like a fantasy.  Over the years Colin transformed that fantasy into a reality experiencing all facets of racing from driver to crew, sponsor, broadcaster and even team owner.

In 2017 we were a small startup company; CanTorque worked with us to specify and supply our company with the torquing systems required.  Our company’s bolting program started in the right direction by meeting both our customer’s as well as our internal bolting requirements.

Colin and his team are extremely knowledgeable and are always available to help with our bolting and tool repair requirements. We have called CanTorque on short notice and they always have exceeded our expectations.

CanTorque’s tools have outperformed other tools I have used in the past. Their service department is second to none-if they can’t fix something in the time we require they have always supplied us with loaner tools at no charge to us.

I recommend CanTorque without hesitation.

We have dealt with Colin Livingston since his early days in the bolting industry and have found him to be knowledgeable, reliable, and honest.

CanTorque has been a significant supplier of hydraulic wrenches, impact wrenches, reamers, and impact sockets to our company from the day that we met.

Colin and Can Torque have been invaluable to the continuing success of my company’s Steel Fabrication Operations. Colin’s suggestions have greatly improved our work product and procedures.

We are presently using their hydraulic wrench systems at our Syncrude and Suncor sites. Their systems have not only saved us time and money but we have found them to be more accurate, consistent and efficient than our previous system.

Without hesitation, I recommend Colin Livingston and CanTorque Inc. Their products and services have been outstanding in the past, and I have no doubt that they will continue to be in the future.

CanTorque Inc. has been our company’s bolting tool supplier for several years. During that time, Colin Livingston and his staff have given us excellent service.

They have been able to support our field operations with large amounts of equipment with short notice. CanTorque’s tools have outperformed their competitor’s tools time and time again.

Their tools are fast and reliable that are easy to maintain and have lower-than-expected repair requirements. We highly recommend CanTorque as a company as well as its tools to all potential users.

I want to express my sincere thanks for the expedient service I received during our recent plant shutdown. Before purchasing our Hydraulic Wrench I asked: what service do you provide in the event something goes wrong with our equipment?

Without hesitation you explained to me that CanTorque will provide complimentary loaner equipment should ours fail for any reason, at any time.

During the early stage of our shutdown, we experienced an issue with our pump motor. Fearing that we would not be able to complete our shutdown on schedule I remembered your bold offer of support at the time of purchase.

I did not hesitate to call CanTorque. After listening to me explain the issue you responded that you would immediately package up a unit for shipping to us and requested that we send ours to you to have it checked out.

Surely enough the loner unit arrived the next clay for us to use until you repaired my unit.

Our unit was repaired and returned very quickly, all at no charge.

I appreciate the service and the fact that your words matched your actions.

I look forward to working with your company in the future.

I want to take this opportunity to express our satisfaction with CanTorque and Colin Livingston. We began dealing with CanTorque on a refinery construction project at the Shell Scottford refinery in 2002 and have worked exclusively with them ever since. Colin made multiple trips to site over 10 months to deal directly with the workers and supervisors in the field, conduct periodic maintenance and conduct refresher courses for all workers. The tools that CanTorque supplied were the most user-friendly hydraulic wrenches we’ve used.

We had up to 8 systems running on-site for the majority of the construction phase with little or no downtime. CanTorque’s hands-on service was a great benefit to ensure that the tools were being used safely and efficiently and that our department stayed on schedule. Due to the fact that this was such a large project, Colin’s on site assistance throughout the term of our rental and specifically in assisting us in demobilizing was a great help. I would highly recommend CanTorque’s products and services.
