Family first, second and third: A Flaman Tech Direct Guide

It’s no secret that farming in Canada is a family business. Well, the Flamans take that to a whole new level. What began more than 60 years ago in Southey, Saskatchewan by Frank Flaman has blossomed into a western Canadian staple where farmers, truckers and the construction industry alike are able to find what they need, when they need it and feel like they’re working with family in the process. It’s the Flaman way.

“People together. Doing what’s right. Making a difference.”

The company motto is often heard and discussed throughout the day at any of their Prairie-wide locations. The crew at Flaman believe in these three values and work hard to ensure that the mantra always rings true, not hollow. With over 400 staff on hand ready to serve, customers can rest assured Flaman brings a winning attitude to help you achieve your goals no matter how small or large. People value company culture and if you want to know what the company culture at Flaman is like, just ask any one of their 20-plus employees who have all served for more than 25 years. With an average employee age of 44, Flaman is a young, dynamic farm company ready to roll up its sleeves to serve you better.

What you want, when you need it

From agriculture and trailers to grain systems, parts and rentals, Flaman has something for everyone. On the farm side, Flaman offers grain handling, storage and drying solutions as well as implements, pumps and more. Flaman keeps up with the latest products on the market and is stocked from Alberta to Manitoba to meet your farm needs. Flaman has a longstanding relationship with farmers for one simple reason – they are also farmers and understand that the unique challenges of ag occur 365 days of the year.

Rentals 

While many jobs in agriculture or construction require a unique piece of machinery, trailer or other tool, it often does not make financial sense to buy, but rent. This is an area where Flaman has worked hard for the last 20-plus years to bring options to customers. Whether a trailer to haul a load for the day or a post pounder for a week, you’re in good hands with Flaman rentals. 

Future focus

As new generations begin the transition into the family farming operation, discussions about the future arise. Flaman works lock-step with all generations to ensure farm families guarantee generational success. That means a phased approach in yard site development including automated grain handling and storage solutions.

Flaman philanthropy

Remember when we said it’s a family affair? Well, the Flaman family goes well beyond a surname. Blessed with a loyal customer base, Flaman knew a philanthropic element was needed to put their money where their mouth was, so they began the Frank J. Flaman Foundation in 2005. There was simply one goal in mind: give back to those unable to help themselves, specifically children. To that end, the Foundation has partnered with more than 15 unique organizations all designed to help kids in Canada and abroad with everything from a safe place to play and clean drinking water to proper eye care and improving literacy. 

To date, the Foundation has given more than $10 million to the various charities.
