We began 2021 with much excitement, as this year marks Associated Engineering’s 75th anniversary, as well as a sense of optimism and hope that we could return to our normal routines.
We are extremely thankful to everyone, including our clients, partners, friends, and staff present and past, who have been a part of our journey over the past 75 years. We have grown from a three-person office in Edmonton to a company with over 1,000 staff in 21 offices across Canada. We have a proud legacy of projects that have supported healthy and resilient communities and companies. And, we remain one of Canada’s few, employee-owned, consulting firms! While the ongoing pandemic prevented us from gathering to commemorate our 75th anniversary, we hope we will be able to celebrate with you in 2022.
Despite the ongoing challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have had a strong year at Associated. Thank you to our clients for your continued trust in us!
Thank you also to the Associated team. I’m proud of the dedication and tenacity of our staff, and their commitment to technical excellence and sustainability on projects for clients from coast-to-coast-to-coast. Their innovation is demonstrated by awards for the Wanuskewin Heritage Park Bison Facilities, the Dawson City Water Treatment Plant, and Seymour River Suspension Bridge. Congratulations to our project teams!
During this holiday season, in lieu of sending out cards, we are supporting charities and organizations across the country that serve those in need.
I hope to be able to see our clients, partners, and staff in person in 2022. Until then, I wish you and your families a very happy holidays!
Martin Jobke, P.Eng.
President & CEO
