July 11, 2012 by Andrew Snook
EllisDon announced the purchase of the Fort Saskatchewan, Alta.-based PME Group of Companies on July 10, expanding its civil services across Canada, particularly out west.
The company performs civil site work and general construction services for the oil and gas industry throughout Western Canada, with its main focus on the northern Alberta region. PME has focused largely on the oil refineries, oil sands development and oil and gas pipeline sectors in the greater Edmonton, Fort Saskatchewan and Fort McMurray areas.
“Clearly PME is a strong company with great people and a solid record of quality construction work, a high regard for project safety and financial success,” said Geoff Smith, president and CEO for EllisDon. “The skills and experience the PME Group of Companies brings to EllisDon is very complementary to the things that we do.”
