CALGARY, ALTA. — A new member has joined the Graham Group of Companies.
Graham announced that U.S.-based construction firm, Milender White Inc., has been added to its roster. Milender White is an employee-owned real estate development and construction contractor headquartered in Colorado, with offices in Southern California.
A press release by Graham stated the partnership combines the organizations’ “people-focused values, and commitment to delivering superior construction solutions to clients, strategically positioning Graham for profitable growth in a new market.”
The company added the merger was supported by Graham’s diversification strategy, which focuses on continuously expanding its capabilities across a spectrum of sectors and regions.
Graham noted Milender White has developed a reputation for delivering high-value projects with their core business being high-complexity, multi-key commercial and residential projects.
“This is an exciting partnership that I’m certain will develop into further value-added benefits to our clients and opportunities for our people,” said Andy Trewick, president and CEO of Graham, in a statement. “Milender White has an exceptional reputation for being a reliable construction partner that delivers complex projects on-time and on-budget and we’re thrilled to welcome them as partners.”
Milender White will keep operating under its own brand with its existing systems, programs, locations and staff. Its management and team will function as a subsidiary of Graham’s Buildings Division.
Bryon White, who formed the company, will stay its president and CEO. White will join the Graham management team, working with Colin Aitken, executive vice-president of Graham’s Building Division.
“We are very excited to join the Graham family,” said White. “When we were initially considering a merger, it was extremely important to me that we find a partner who is rooted in the same core values and one that would support what is best for all employees in the long-term. Graham, headquartered north of the border in Denver’s sister city, Calgary, is that partner.”
