CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 4, 2012) - Alberta Venture magazine has named Tervita Corporation, a North American leader of environmental solutions and services, as one of Alberta's 250 largest companies. Tervita ranks 20th on the list.
For the last 10 years, Alberta Venture has published a list of Alberta's largest public and private companies in its September issue. The list has become an indispensible resource for business people around the province and across the country. With the growth of the provincial economy, the list expanded from the 100 largest companies to the biggest 250 this year.
"It is humbling that Tervita has been recognized, for the first time, as one of the Venture 250," said John Gibson, Tervita president and CEO. "Thanks to the hard work of Tervita employees and the support of our customers, we have experienced tremendous growth over the last few years. I want to thank each and every employee for their collective efforts, which brought us to where we are today."
"We have come so far since 1979 when we were a tiny, one rig company," said David Werklund, Tervita founder and chairman. "Being on such a well-respected list shows the scale of our organization and highlights that as a large integrated company, we can provide the environmental solutions our clients need."
"Tervita has done a remarkable job bringing 13 disparate companies under one corporate name, creating an instantly recognizable brand and one of the largest environmental and energy services companies in the country," said Michael Ganley, Alberta Venture editor.
