Proficient and ambitious employees are a fundamental part of our long term success. We strive to be the employer of choice in our industry and encourage long term employment from our team. High levels of performance are expected at all times with a team based approach to identifying and solving problems. We inspire, encourage, and recognize our employee contributions with strong investments into our high performance team. We welcome diversity – we are inclusive in thought and deed.

Stakeholder Management

Our goal is to nurture and build winning collaborative relationships with our employees and our stakeholders. We consider long term effects and consequences of our actions. We align expectations and ensure accountability on all aspects of the company. We provide the correct breadth and quality of products and services in each market we serve while being responsive, and respectful to those with whom we interact.

ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

At BURNCO, we have a duty to protect our environment and community. We always analyze the social and environmental impacts of our projects. At our facilities and sites, we endeavor to have the lowest possible impact on the environment by protecting the environment, reducing emissions and preserving resources. Our best practices involve initiatives to benefit society and the ecosystem.

Financial Stability

Our financial success is achieved only if we meet the needs of our customers and satisfy our commitments to our stakeholders. We practice a conservative risk sensitive approach to managing the financial health of the Company. We keep a long term view to all investment decisions while expecting growth to be assertive and not aggressive.

HEALTH AND SAFETY

The health and safety of our people, customers and the public come first and foremost at BURNCO. We also adhere to all compliance with safety, health and environmental laws and regulations.

Our Chairman’s Message

Our quality products, corporate image, and community profile are never sacrificed. When my great grandfather, Jim Burns, started the business in 1912, he recognized that supplying quality products and workmanship was not enough.

Friendly, dependable, customer service was also important and we’ve been developing strong customer relations ever since. At BURNCO, attention to the customers’ needs continues to be the engine that drives our Company.

BURNCO has developed the freedom to direct and control its destiny by remaining independent. We have the ability to anticipate and respond quickly to changing market conditions, customer demands and requirements of our many stakeholders.

BURNCO has long been a part of Western Canada’s history and more recently Texas, and is looking forward to continuing its steady, dependable growth on into the new century.

OUR COMPANY’S SUCCESS IS BASED ON HAVING AN ONGOING DIALOGUE WITH OUR CUSTOMERS AND COMMUNITY.

What People say about us

It has been my great pleasure to work in tandem with BURNCO here in Calgary, and also on occasion in Edmonton.

In the course of the last 5 years of paving for us, we have completed many forms of paving: bridge decks with Superpave mix designs, City streets with Superpave mix designs, commercial…
