How Taurus Has Remained An Industry Leader For Over a Decade

Taurus prides itself on the quality of services it provides. We are capable and experienced industry leaders in all areas of construction. With up to date equipment, we provide specialised services in earthworks, excavation, trenching, piling, roadworks, bridges, manage laydowns, installation, maintenance of trailers, snow removal, building erection and waste management. With a team of nearly 500 skilled professionals, we provide services in a competent and skilled manner.
Established in 2006, Taurus has a mission “to be a leader and be recognised by our strong belief in safety, history of accountability and commitment to continuous reliability for our clients, employees and the communities in which we operate.” Committed to the values of hard work and ethical practice, we promise to deliver products on time and recognize that quality and environmental issues are intrinsically linked. Our focus on safety in the workplace and the environment establishes us as leaders in the community. Taurus’s goals centre around the continued improvement of their core goals and values: safety, quality, time and cost.
Over the last decade, Taurus has received awards within the community and on a provincial level. We were recognised as an Ambassador for the City of Fort Saskatchewan. In 2012, we received the Fort Saskatchewan Chamber of Commerce Award for the Manufacturer/Industry of the Year. In 2015, Alberta Venture named us the Heavy Civil Contractor of the Year and we were shortlisted for Canada’s Safest Employee by the Canadian Occupational Safety Standards Council.

Taurus is proud to be a part of many construction projects throughout the years. In 2007, we were involved in gas and water underground utility installation with BA Energy. We worked at Shell Scotford in Fort Saskatchewan with site indirects and materials handling. In 2009, we completed a project in Regina at the Consumers Cooperatives Refineries. In 2012 and 2013, we provided services at the Northeast Redwater Partnership in Redwater; at the Bechtel ATCO yards in Duchess, Alberta and at the SNC Levalin WATL Access between Red Deer and Langdon. 2014 involved a project with the City of Leduc for underground utilities. Partnering with companies such as Keyera, ATCO Electric, Bechtel and Shell showcased the pride and quality assurances Taurus promises with every project we are involved in.
In addition to our excellent reputation in the construction industry, Taurus is a respected and active member in the community. We support NAIT Athletic Scholarships and actively contribute to the Fort Saskatchewan Minor Hockey program. In addition to providing support within the community, we extend ourselves to major causes such as the Olympics Hockey Marathon For Kids, the FSMA Cancer Ride and Rally and the ALS Society of Alberta. With high standards of service, commitment to strong goals and values, Taurus continues to grow and improve in all aspects of the services they provide. Safety, commitment to the environment, accountability and a strong sense of community are all factors that contribute to the way Taurus provides excellent service within and outside of the industry.
