Five years ago when Titan Environmental Containment celebrated its 10th anniversary, Geosynthetica profiled the tremendous growth that the company had experienced throughout Canada and the United States. The arc we looked at then hasn’t stopped. Titan has continually shown leaps in project scale, new geosynthetic product development, product portfolio growth, and expansion in warehouses and offices.
This week, Titan has announced a major expansion eastward in Canada with the opening of a new 28,000 ft.2 location in Ontario with additional corporate offices and stock yard space connected to the region’s principle highways. It marks a major shift, moving the company from a satellite office presence in Eastern Canada with a growing client base to a full-service operation in the region characterized by a deep portfolio of local market solutions.
TITAN EXPANSION HIGHLIGHTS
With the opening of the new facility, Titan has announced the addition of some local industry leaders to its team: Wes Anderson and Fraser Robinson. Anderson and Robinson join field veterans such as John Mooney and Sam Bhat who many in the field know for their work in geosynthetics, along with experienced administrative staff from corporate headquarters brought in to support them in customer service and day-to-day business operations.
The new office is located officially in Burlington, which is where Anderson and Robinson both live. They add another 40 years of combined civil construction industry insight in Ontario to the company’s team. They also offer tremendous synergy, as they’ve worked together for 20 years as colleagues and business partners, including in a successful geosynthetics business.
“This is certainly an exciting step for Titan,” says the company’s CEO & co-founder Brett Burkard. “We’ve had a client base in Ontario for a few years now in both our Supply Division, supplying material for civil construction projects, and our Construction Division, installing geomembrane for specific lining projects. The decision to shift from a satellite office in Ontario to a boots-on-the ground, full-service location was made to strengthen our relationships in the region, and better serve our existing clients in Ontario and Eastern Canada as a whole. Wes and Fraser are excellent additions to our solid team, and I look forward to seeing things develop to our full potential in the East.”
“Titan’s positive and ambitious company culture was clear to us right away,” says Robinson, who has been installed as the Regional Operations Manager in Ontario. “Our client-first attitude, our strong work ethic, and our understanding of the local market complements Titan’s already proven track record.”
Anderson echoes the sentiment and emphasizes the importance of a unique Eastern Canada presence.
“We have product stock that is consistent with other Titan locations,” he says, “in addition to some drainage products more common to the Eastern market to meet local needs.”
