LOWELL, MASS. – Massachusetts-based engineering and construction management firm TRC Companies Inc. has announced it will expand its Canadian operations “to take advantage of a rebounding oil and gas market and the country’s increased infrastructure spending.”
A recent statement said TRC has hired Canadian oil and gas project specialist Michael Koski to take on the role of senior vice-president of Canadian operations.
“The time is right for us to grow our business in Canada and bring more of our unique services and solutions to clients there,” said CEO Chris Vincze in the statement.
“We already have a strong infrastructure practice in Canada, and we plan to build upon our existing relationships with a number of Canadian clients for whom we’ve done work in the United States.”
“Mike brings a unique blend of engineering, construction, environmental and regulatory skills to the table and will quickly help us scale up operations,” said Ed Wiegele, president of TRC’s oil and gas sector.
“Plus he has extensive experience in the Canadian oil and gas market and excellent command of Canada’s regulatory environment.”
The statement said Koski has spent three decades working in the oil and gas sector with experience with project management, engineering and environmental issues.
“I look forward to expanding TRC’s services into Canada across all business sectors,” said Koski.
“Companies in Canada are clamoring for the integrated approach, advanced technologies and laser-like focus on client needs that TRC is known throughout the industry for.”
TRC has already worked on infrastructure projects across Canada and has dealt with Canadian firms TransCanada, Enbridge, Kinder Morgan and the Canadian National Railway, the statement indicated.
