Who We Are

Water X was founded in 2009 as Steinbach Hydrovac Ltd., providing service to the Winnipeg area with one single axle hydrovac. The business expanded quickly and hydrovac units and steamers were added to expand the scope of work. In 2014, sister company Water X Industrial Services was founded to offer industrial water and steam cleaning. In 2016 the Thompson location was added, giving the companies the ability to offer their services across Manitoba. Steinbach Hydrovac and Water X Industrial Services Ltd. amalgamated in 2017 to offer you a greater scope of services, all under one dynamic company.
