EDMONTON, Alta. — Contrans Group is getting into the waste collection business with the acquisition of Edmonton-based ProWerx Disposal.
ProWerx provides industrial, commercial and residential waste collection services in the Edmonton area. It operates 15 vehicles and uses about 1,500 collection bins of various sizes and configurations, the company says.
“Contrans has long been known for providing specialized transportation services – either through specialized equipment or service offerings to our customers,” announced Stan Dunford, CEO of Contrans. “As a result, our growth has been focused on businesses with sustainable and recession-proof margins. ProWerx is a business that has produced significant organic growth in the market over the last four years, and is positioned to continue to grow.”
