Our History

In 2003 Terry Young saw the opportunity to serve the needs of the some of Canada’s leading providers of screw piles and 1138357 Alberta Ltd. (operating as Young Contracting) was formed. Like most entrepreneurs it all began with one welding truck and due to our commitment to the quality of service and workmanship the company has experienced a steady planned growth to work with world recognized companies in many industries such as Oil & Gas, Power Transmission and Distribution, Agriculture, Commercial and Industrial construction, Municipal and Residential projects and custom fabrication.

With over twenty five years of welding experience and a philosophy of only hiring the best welders available the company has progressed to ten welding trucks to service the field welding requirements of our valued customers. Main operation facilities are located 10km South Ponoka, Alberta, and a shop in Martensville, Saskatchewan, with a fabrication shop, administration support personnel, and mobile welding trucks.

Young Contracting is certified to the following standards and regulatory bodies:

  • Workers Compensation Board (WCB),
  • COR – Workplace Safety – Certificate of Recognition,
  • Canadian Welding Bureau CSA W47.1 Fusion Welding of Steel Company Certification Division 2
  • Canadian Welding Bureau CSA W186M Welding of Reinforcing Bars in Reinforced Concrete Construction Certification Division 2
  • ISNet
  • ACSA

In 2015 we received the Alberta Construction Safety Association Trailblazer Award.

Quality and safety are the core values that drive our organization with a focus on enhancing customer satisfaction.

“Century Wireline Services has relied upon Young Contracting for several years.  In particular, their ability to design and manufacturer specialty items for our business.  They have maintained our fleet of equipment for Engineering Certifications and provided services in remote locations.  The capability of Young Contracting to budget, design and control our special projects is beyond compare.  The staff and management truly know the meaning of customer service, and the needs of their clients.  When Young Contracting takes on one of our unique projects, it has always been completed under budget and with high degree of quality. Simply, I do not call anyone else when special services are required for our business.”
