Aecon opens Western Canadian headquarters in Calgary

 Aecon Group Inc. announced the establishment of its Aecon West Headquarters in Calgary, Alberta.

"This new headquarters anchors Aecon's presence in Western Canada," said John M. Beck, Aecon's Chairman and CEO, who was joined by Calgary Deputy Mayor Brian Pincott and Bruce Graham, President and CEO of Calgary Economic Development, for the announcement in Calgary.

"Aecon's business in Western Canada has shown impressive growth over the past few years, to the point where today, Aecon's revenue and employee base is as significant in Western Canada as it is in Eastern Canada," said Beck. "Having a core office here enables us to further strengthen our key customer relationships in the west, integrate our diverse service lines to provide unparalleled solutions to our clients, and cement our ties to the business community in the west."

Bruce Graham, President and CEO of Calgary Economic Development, praised Aecon for reinforcing its concrete presence in Calgary with a high level corporate office. "Aecon's decision to choose Calgary confirms the message that Calgary is indeed a headquarter city and will continue to be a key driver in the Canadian economy in the years to come," said Graham.  "Aecon's commitment to Calgary is good news for both business and people."

"Calgary is a vibrant, bustling center of economic activity," Beck said. "It is a natural fit for Aecon as one of Canada's leading contractors. This is the ideal city from which to tackle the immense opportunities we see across Western Canada."
