2017 MERIT Employer of the Year (More than 25 Employees)
Quorex Construction – Saskatoon and Regina
Quorex Construction Ltd. has been building quality projects for over 35 years. With over 100 field personnel, they are a full service construction company with offices in both Saskatoon and Regina.
Quorex believes that the strength of their organization is their people. They operate on the philosophy that teamwork builds quality projects that are on time and on budget. That philosophy is put to the test daily as the company constructs projects across the province from schools to retail outlets to multi-family housing.
Quorex is COR Certified and places a high priority on safety on all its sites. Their modernized safety culture has embraced the Workplace Risk Assessment plan and training has become key for all their employees’ professional development. They adopted a “watch each other’s back” mantra and have seen dramatic results from this shift in culture.
Quorex has always been a main supporter of the Merit training programs, but their investment in education goes well beyond that. They are strong supporters of the apprenticeship system, the Skills and Trade Centers, SIIT, and the Women in Trades programs.
Quality is another cornerstone of the Quorex business model. By creating strong relationships with project owners, the company has successfully garnered repeat customers. They have earned multiple Heritage Building Awards, Contractor of the Year Awards, and are consistently on the Top 100 Saskatchewan Companies list.
Giving back to the community is a natural fit for Quorex. They support worthwhile projects such as Habitat for Humanity, Ronald McDonald House, the Lighthouse project and the Summer Youth Intern program to name just a few. Their employees are actively involved in industry associations and are vocal advocates for open shop contracting.
Quorex is home-grown Saskatchewan success story and is a shining example of how open shop contracting is shaping the landscape of our province. They are outstanding recipients of the 2017 Merit Employer of the Year Award.
