This year marked a milestone for Associated Engineering as we surpassed 1000 employees in our 23 offices across Canada. We’ve come a long way since we were founded by two engineers in Edmonton in 1946. More than 70 years later, Associated Engineering remains a Canadian, employee-owned company. To us, employee-ownership means that we retain the flexibility to determine our own course, and to respond appropriately to client needs to ensure your satisfaction on every project we undertake.
In December 2017, Nor·Ex Engineering joined the Associated Engineering group of companies, bringing expertise in ice engineering and disaster planning and recovery. Nor·Ex’s expertise complements our work in the North, our climate change initiative, and our disaster response efforts on behalf of clients. We welcome Dana Woodsworth, Al Fitzgerald, and the Nor·Ex team to the Associated family.
My first year as President of the Associated Engineering group of companies has been busy, as I have travelled across the company to get to know our staff and our clients. To staff, thank you for welcoming me to your offices, and for your commitment, energy, and entrepreneurship. You have created an enduring culture that makes Associated Engineering a great place to work.
To our clients, I appreciate the time that you’ve spent with me to understand your vision, goals, and local issues. This understanding will help us serve you better. Thank you for your continued trust in Associated Engineering as your consultant of choice.
To you and your families, Merry Christmas and best wishes for peace, health and happiness in the new year.
Martin Jobke, P.Eng., President
