A Significant Achievement In The History of ONEC

At ONEC, we have always strived to be the best. From our Vision statement, “To become Western Canada’s best engineering and construction team; completing capital and maintenance projects for our clients” to our Values of Balance, Excellence, Success and Teamwork.

BEST has always been the target, and we are pleased to announce that BEST is also our result. We are honoured that ONEC has been recognized with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2017 Best Managed program recognizes the best in class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth. This honour is particularly significant considering there were only five new winners in all of Alberta; two in Calgary and three in Edmonton.

As we shared with our staff, our ‘Best Managed’ designation is a team success. Decisions, directions and innovations that define ONEC have always come from an integrated and inclusive process.

“Well-run companies are important to the economic health of our country. These companies serve as role models to help make all Canadian businesses better,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.

Throughout that uncertain economic climate, our partners and customers continued to believe in us, work with us and demonstrate that Edmontonians will always find creative and courageous ways to move forward through difficult challenges. Truly, we could not have achieved this honour without that ongoing support, and for that we would like to extend our most heart-felt thanks.
