Tron Construction and Mining (Tron) and Allied Track Services (Allied) have teamed up “to create a First Nations-led full-service provider of industrial, civil and railroad construction services to the rail industry across Canada.”
The participation of Tron, which is First Nations-owned and has working partnerships with other First Nation entities across the country, “clears a path for increased training, employment and economic opportunity for Indigenous people in this segment of Canada’s transportation sector.”
Tron, with office locations in Saskatchewan and Ontario, has a track record of working with local Indigenous communities across Canada to provide economic benefits through employment and training. Tron provides a wide range of construction and infrastructure services to industries ranging from mining and petrochemicals to nuclear power to utilities.
Headquartered in Grimsby, Ontario, Allied provides full-service track, signal and communications construction and maintenance services across Canada.
“We discovered shared values and natural synergies in our discussions with Allied,” said Anthony Clark, President, CEO, Tron. “Both companies are built on a culture of safety, quality and customer satisfaction. Together, we can leverage each company’s strengths in a meaningful way from coast to coast to coast.”
“Over the past 12 months, Tron and Allied have worked together to identify and establish a strong organizational cultural and capacity alignment,” said Andy Jones, VP, COO, Allied. “We now look forward to delivering solutions for our clients and the economic benefit of First Nations communities. Once again, Canada’s railways can play a unifying role across a large and diverse country.”
