Home > About Ledcor

Local talent. Local experience. Backed by a trusted, stable, 100% employee-owned international company that has been doing work since 1947.

Since 1947 we’ve lived and worked surrounded by Alberta’s booming oil fields and our roots there are still deep, but over the decades we’ve put down new roots in cities and regions all over the continent.

We brought on our first permanent US team over two decades ago, and have been working in the US since 1977. We've expanded by bringing on local companies whose people worked hard to earn their reputations in the local industry. We’ve travelled with our clients from high-rises in bustling cities, to small town shopping centers, to subarctic diamond mines where the only roads and bridges are made of ice. Along the way, we blended proven team members with local hires and suppliers who knew the lay of the land like no one else. 

When you work with Ledcor, you're working alongside local teams with local expertise, backed by the experience and security of an international company with over $3 billion in annual revenue. Now that’s peace of mind.

Our US team and all of our construction professionals across North America have a depth of knowledge and expertise that only comes from working on hundreds of complex projects each and every year. They know exactly what it takes to collaborate with our clients, design teams, and construction partners at every stage.

Ledcor's History

In 1947, with the help of a $5,000 loan secured on nothing more than a handshake, William Lede put his bulldozer to work, shaping his young company with a vision of how business should be done - with integrity, accountability, and an insistence on quality. Watch our Legacy video.
