Our History

Bantrel was founded in 1983 as a small engineering company with its eyes on challenging projects. Today, the company is one of Canada’s largest and most respected engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) companies, executing some of the biggest and most challenging projects in the country, including multi-billion dollar facilities and facility modification projects in Alberta’s oilsands. We are backed by the 115-year legacy of Bechtel Corporation a top-ranking global EPC company, and McCaig Investments, a Calgary-based holding company with longstanding ties to the local business community.

Our original shareholders built a company committed to strong customer relationships and the highest standards for safety, quality and performance. Through the decades, these core values have endured.

Looking back, our track record of growth and achievement provides ample inspiration for the future ahead. In the years to come, look for Bantrel to continue leading the charge - designing and building complex projects, expanding further into other markets, and continually improving the way we do business.

Bantrel’s proud history is outlined in our 25th Anniversary Book.
