September 12, 2013, Surrey, BC – Employee-owned Mainroad
Group is celebrating twenty-five years in the civil maintenance business in
western Canada. To celebrate the occasion, Mainroad is building a new strategic
business plan to help the company prosper over the next quarter century and
meet their need to secure the next generation of their workforce.

“These are exciting times for the Mainroad Group,” said
Peter Ashcroft, president of the Mainroad Group. “In the next three to five
years, there will be a demand to fill several positions across all fifteen
Mainroad Group companies. We are proud to be creating jobs in British Columbia
and our neighbouring province, Alberta.”  

Having secured its first highway operations and maintenance
contract in Alberta, Mainroad Chinook Contracting is hiring truck and equipment
operators for the future Stoney Trail SE ring road in Calgary. While the
company prepares for winter operations commencing this October, the company was
active this summer, offering equipment and resources to repair the Baker Creek
Bridge near Castle Junction on Hwy 1A in Banff National Park.  The bridge was extensively damaged due to
flooding.

Mainroad has also expanded its co-op program this past
summer, securing a large group of students for various specialized roles from
the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, Kwantlen
Polytechnic University, and CDI College. 

“Mainroad’s co-op program is a great way to invest in our
community and future Mainroad recruits,” says Richard Sakaki, vice-president of
human resources.
