The attractiveness of the Western Canadian resource market has also resulted in an increasing number of global EPC participation and diversity in project execution methodologies. In some cases, global EPC companies, new to the Western Canadian marketplace, have established offices in Western Canada to execute projects locally, while other projects have been executed, in whole or in part, outside of Canada.
Competition for Canadian industrial engineering contracts is fierce and thirsting for innovation, including contract execution strategies with a higher level of responsibility and risk being taken on by the EPC companies. Adding to the complexity of these projects are the localized industrial process nuances, the Canadian climate, compliance with Canadian codes and standards, fabrication construction, and logistics management to name a few. Selecting the right Instrumentation and Automation Supplier can be an asset to de-risking Western Canadian projects.
Spartan Controls has been supplying Instrumentation and Automation in Western Canada for over 50 years. Our 1,000 employees, across nine locations, have the local knowledge of all the industries in Western Canada. Projects have been executed as long as Spartan Controls has been in business and we have had teams focused on these projects since the company’s inception.
