When it comes to road construction and infrastructure, think of us as your boots on the ground. We supply and install products that outfit highways, airports, transit systems, and municipal contracts.
Roadside safety has been our focus for over 50 years and we take great pride in our work.
Our project delivery strategies improve timelines and processes which allows you to generate increased capabilities on projects, from start to finish. We humbly employ over 200 employees, have an impressively sized fleet and the experience to seamlessly tackle any project that comes our way. What that really breaks down to is, we are here to help you do what you do.
Our roots began as a small family business in 1967 as hay delivery and farm fence service. Back when gas was $0.33 per gallon our founders, The Powell’s, realized that there was a need for roadside safety products and began to evolve into what is known today as Powell (Richmond Hill) Contracting Ltd.
Over the course of 50 years, our growth has run parallel with an increased need for roadside safety products and their ability to serve as an industry leader across Canada. This rich history allows our scope to offer in-depth knowledge and experience in road user safety, client satisfaction, and establish various partnerships and new businesses.
Through offering a fully-inclusive installation service for steel beam guardrails, construction barriers, and crash cushions we are able to provide fully integrated solutions to private and government projects alike. And that means together, we can deliver work that helps keep communities safe.
