Weir Construction Ltd. takes great pride in all of its employees. Below is a list of the company’s full-time employees with which Weir would not be half the company it is.
Bob Weir – President
Since Bob has been President of Weir Construction Ltd., he has been instrumental in moving the company forward. When Bob took on a more substantial role in the company approximately 10 years ago, he recognized an opportunity. As awareness of environmental concerns has continued to grow, it became apparent to Bob that a company focusing on reclamation and remediation had great potential. By directing the company towards reclamation and remediation services, the company has taken on a major role in this ever expanding market.
So while Bob steers the company in the right direction, it is only with a strong crew does it stay on the right course. For a company to be truly successful, it needs the right people in the right environment.
Below is a list of some of the most qualified people in the business. Bob takes great pride in the following employees and recognizes that Weir Construction Ltd. today is stronger then it has ever been, thanks to them.
