June 30, 2010, Langley, B.C. – The Tyam Group has expanded its operations with the acquisition of Western Versatile Construction Corporation (WVCC). The purchase of WVCC also includes an investment in Wespark Electric Ltd, a specialty electrical contractor focusing on industrial installations within the heavy construction industry.
“The acquisition of WVCC builds on the heavy civil and structural expertise developed on Tyam’s successful Canada Line Project and adds to our core expertise in road building, municipal utility work, residential site services and bulk excavation and shoring,” said Mike Luers, executive vice president at Tyam.
“WVCC also brings significant expertise and experience in design-build projects. This allows Tyam to offer a broader range of services to our customers and adds expertise in all aspects of our business.”
WVCC is a heavy civil industrial contractor that has been in operation for over 20 years. WVCC has completed projects throughout BC, Alberta and the Yukon, specializing in heavy civil and structural work including bridge building, hydroelectric installations and mining projects. They have a strong reputation for providing quality services on a variety of large construction projects.
The operations of WVCC will be relocated to Tyam’s Gloucester Estates facility in Langley where it will operate as an independent division of Tyam. WVCC will continue to pursue bridge, hydroelectric and mining projects and will also work closely with Tyam on future projects to maximize the synergy in operations between the two companies.
“This acquisition is part of our continued commitment to Tyam’s growth and development. Shareholders and management of both Tyam and WVCC are very excited about the purchase and feel that with our complimentary skill sets we will be able to bring new and significantly improved services to the market,” said Tyam’s President Robert Barker.
