Here is some history about our local Business Falcon Enterprises.
Falcon Enterprises is an oilfield service rig company that was started by Detlef back in 1988. Detlef bought their first rig in 1988 from Ritchie Brothers Auction. It was an old 1968 rig! They were able to sell it years later, it is now all the way down in Arkansas. Jan, still being a teenager graduating in 1994, went to school for three years at Brandon & Winnipeg but during the summer would always come back to help his Dad on the rigs. With the oil crash in 1999 Jan just ran a tank truck for a bit, then it fired back up and he has been working on the rigs ever since. In 2000 he got his first rig, then got a second one from Alberta and in 2007 was when they built Rig 5, their first rig built from scratch. In 2010 Jan was managing the company and his dad Detlef came to help here and there. Falcon Enterprises moved from Detlef and Ursula’s house into the old vet clinic in 2012, adding an addition for themselves the following year. Jan now owns 6 rigs as well as many other pieces of equipment that are available for rental to do odd jobs. These include a telehandler, light tower, ground heater, air seeder and a skid steer with multiple attachments for jobs like stump grinding and post hole digging. Falcon Enterprises is located behind the Pembina co-op lumber yard, you will see their beautiful pump jack out front as well as the sign. They can be contacted at 204-522-5098 or email@example.com for rental inquiries!
