Please take note of our most recent update concerning COVID-19 as of March 26, 2020:
As you may know, our provincial government has released a list of essential businesses that may remain open during this time. ELV Select has taken this into careful consideration in order to decide what our next steps will be.
Once again, our top priority is to protect the health and safety of our staff and customers. Therefore, full operation of our business will be temporarily suspended until further notice.
We understand that some of our customers are still operating and we are committed to supporting you. That is why you will still be able to order parts and supplies as we will still be available to ship these parts and carry out your emergency service repairs (by appointment only).
We have implemented increased health and safety measures into our operations, as recommended by our government. This may result in slight delays in shipping times, but rest assured, we will do our utmost to continue shipping as quickly as possible.
If you have further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.
As you know our industry like many others, is facing a number of challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our government has declared a state of emergency and we are all doing our best to ‘flatten the curve’ of COVID-19.
We all find ourselves still trying to run our businesses, potentially being short staffed, with many things running through our minds. This is making it difficult to stay on task. We, at ELV Select, feel the same way and we aim to help you find solutions in these times.
Spending piles of money is the last thing we all want to do. The thought of doing any costly repairs on vital pieces of equipment we can all agree, is something we want to avoid just as much as this virus. That said, processing time is precious and hard to come by and it is now a key time to inspect ALL of your equipment to avoid downtime.
Even in unsettling times, it is important to persevere like we always have in an industry that has faced trials. By keeping things running smoothly while taking the proper precautions we can help one another through this. To ensure the safety of our employees and staff members, we too, have inspected our own current way of doing things. We have implemented a set of responsible guidelines for our staff going forward.
On-site work shall be handled as follows:
- Arrangements shall be made with the customer to ensure both parties are comfortable. If the work needs to be conducted after hours, this can be arranged. Please note that our purposes are solely based on implementing reasonable precautions to protect our employees as well as our customers.
- Work areas shall be wiped down prior to commencement of work.
- A reasonable distance shall be maintained between staff members and you, the customer (social distancing recommended).
- Work area shall be wiped down after completion of work.
*Please note that proper hygiene practices are taken very seriously by our staff members and anyone who is showing signs of illness will be advised to stay home.
As the news of the virus evolves this approach may be updated or revised.
If you require service, parts or assistance do not hesitate to contact us.
As you know, the current emergency linked to the spread of the COVID-19 virus has exceptional consequences for the normal course of economic activities, the movement of people, goods and services all over the world.
The new preventive measures imposed by the federal and provincial governments call for caution.
To help accommodate with your current policies we have decided to work outside of the regular shifts where necessary (by appointment only).
For the moment, we are not recording any delay. In any event, taking into account the particular situation and the impossibility of foreseeing the next developments in the short and medium terms, any delay or possible failure in the execution of orders or service work must be attributed to unusual circumstances.
Thank you for your understanding. We wish you and your loved ones to stay healthy.
The Team at ELV Select.
ELV Select has introduced CMB hydraulic attachments to the list of brands we carry. As you know, ELV Select distributes the product lines of SEDA and Taurus. We carry these brands to provide the best solutions to our client’s in the ELV processing and metal recycling industries.
In order to make work easy for our clients in these Industries, we needed to offer something to fill the product gap that SEDA and Taurus do not cover. Our solution was to address the need for handling and demolition tools designed for the equipment that the majority of our clients already have; excavators and loaders.
CMB designs and manufactures high quality, high-performance hydraulic attachments for the demolition and handling of waste materials. CMB also carries a line of attachments for the forestry industry.
Check out this new product line on the CMB section on our website.
This past year we opened up our business into the compressed air market. Our reason for this? Our company mission is not just to sell a product to our clients, but to sell a process in order for our customers to get the best bang for their buck. We make it our responsibility to give our professional recommendations, to build a plan of action and provide each individual client with the most efficient processes with the help of the products we so strongly believe in.
This is where Topring comes in, a brand with core values that align with ours. Their approach being, “Compressed air is an important source of energy. It is used in several applications in industry. In order to get the most out of it, it must be properly planned.” -Topring
We are currently in the process of updating our site to include our Compressed air products and services in the best way possible for your convenience. Stay tuned for updates.
September and October have been two long-awaited months for ELV Select with a large amount of prep required for two big shows. ELV Select had built two ES2 mobile drainage systems for the occasions to really give our friends in the industry, a visual of what efficient and environmentally-friendly vehicle depollution of end of life vehicles looks like.
These last two months started with co-hosting the AARDA Convention and doing a live on-site demo of the ES2 at the West Edmonton Mall, and then went on to shipping an ES2 across the US/Canadian border to join Seda USA at the ARA Convention & Exposition.
After this passed Thanksgiving long-weekend, we found it to be perfect timing to reflect on these great opportunities. We are beyond thankful for the ability to attend, not only these trade shows, but all of the other expositions that we have attended in the passed year. We are beyond grateful to be able to share our knowledge and experience with all those in the auto & metal recycling industries, as we work together for a greener tomorrow!
A big thank you to our staff, partners and clients for the continued support.
On October 10-12, 2019. ELV Select will be travelling south of the border to join their partners, Seda USA at their booth in Charlotte, North Carolina for the ARA Convention & Exposition. Along with us we will bring our ES2/MDS9 complete mobile drainage systems for you to see in person.
We hope to see you there!

We have been pretty M.I.A. when it comes to being present online lately. We are here now! We have been busy working on the Shear Baler, but alongside this labour intensive project, we had found ourselves in a frenzy with a number of tight deadlines. It was all hands on deck to conquer the next few weeks to where we are now. While the shear baler rebuild project continued outside ( with the warm weather still sticking around), the manufacturing of another ES2 commenced inside. This ES2 would be the very first to be shipped out to a trade show and demoed live on-site, right in the parking lot of the West Edmonton Mall at the AARDA Convention!
As for the Shear Baler Rebuild, a lot of ground has been covered (quite literally):
The painting of the Baling Box and Shear Head are near complete. We brought out the cranes once again, to set the shear head right side up after the repairs we did. The parking lot at ELV Select has been full for months, due to a plethora of bits and pieces of the shear baler that needed to be cleaned, fixed up and painted to look good as new. Now we can say that all of those pieces are really coming together and looking like the machine it was meant to be.
It has been a minute since we have added an update of our shear baler rebuild project, so here is an update:
Last time we posted about the squeezebox, we were in the middle of opening up the wings. We then had to take the wings off. From there the hinge pins were to be taken out and replaced.
The removal of the hinge pins turned out to be a much bigger job than anticipated. The pins needed to be cut into pieces and pushed out with a press, while some of the hinges required the entire inner pin and outer knuckles to be removed.
After much hard work, the rod was cut, pieces worked out, knuckles replaced and the first wing was back in place.
ELV Select is joining forces with AARDA (Alberta Automotive Recyclers & Dismantlers) to bring you a fun and unique tradeshow experience. The tradeshow, coming up on September 20 & 21, 2019, will be held at the West Edmonton Mall. Overnight accommodations at the Fantasyland Hotel. Here will be held the annual Canadian Auto Recyclers Meeting along with the Auto Recycling Tradeshow and a Silent Auction. A Bus will be departing from the Mall for a tour of Aldon’s
Recycled Auto & Truck Parts and Al’s Toy Barn of classic cars.
Come out to enjoy the endless experiences that the location offers, uniquely themed rooms and great food!
But wait… there is more. We will be doing an on-site demo of our ES2 mobile drainage station. We will be draining End of Life Vehicles right in the parking lot.
