In the beginning, CanWest Industrial started out as a headhunting and recruitment agency across Canada.
In the years that followed, CanWest grew to be one of Western Canada’s largest industrial recruiters, placing thousands of workers on industrial and commercial job sites throughout Alberta and British Columbia. By the end of 2008, we had placed over 5,000 workers on various sites across the country spanning from St John’s to Prince George.
In 2009 and 2010 CanWest continued to grow exponentially, opening up regional offices across Canada and spreading into the United States. Our database of skilled trades workers grew to more than 7,500 and we continued gaining new clients while maintaining a 90% margin of clients who hire us multiple times in a variety of roles. While our skilled trades recruitment services continued to bloom, we began to expand our services to offer on-site insulation blanket repair in our mobile blanket repair unit.
In the spring of 2010, CanWest began expanding into full-service project management for our clients – offering a hole-in-one approach by managing and micromanaging every aspect of your job site from recruiting and hiring to safety training and procurement services, all the way to construction and completion of your project.
