After graduating from Lakehead University from the Forestry Technician Program, there were not too many jobs available in that sector. So, Tom decided to try the heavy equipment business and bought a loader backhoe and 1967 Fargo Dump truck. Tom's hard work ethic and belief that “you give it your all no matter what task you are doing“ has paid off.
Here we are over 29 years later, a thriving, expanding company. We have become the largest construction company in the area. Tom Veert Contracting Ltd. has tackled many construction projects from building miles of roads, to Infrastructure development, and aggregate. Our company always looks forward to a new challenge and embraces any opportunity to learn and grow even better.
