ATCO Electric seeking new and larger facilities as company grows

Upgrade work in progress – ATCO Electric continues to progress on work in Stettler to replace several power poles and upgrade service lines as part of its three-year multi-million-dollar project that started in fall 2008 to increase voltage by five times. ATCO staff were working on the project just days before the heavy snowfall began.

ATCO Electric continues to seek a larger facility in Stettler to meet the needs and demands of the growing region.

Currently with a staff of 45, the company plans to increase that to 60, said Allan Gano, district manager for the southeast region that extends west to Nevis, east to the Saskatchewan border, south to Byemoor and north to Forestburg.

“We are exploring options where we are going to house everyone,” said Gano.

With staff located at buildings at 5005 – 47 Street and 3809 – 46 Avenue, ATCO wants to have all its local employees in one location.

“We are looking around – to house at least 60,” said Gano.

“We are extremely busy in this region.”

“We are excited about having more employees,” said Gano.

Last year, ATCO Electric purchased land in the industrial area with plans to develop there although plans haven’t been confirmed.

“We bought a number of lots last year,” said Gano.

“We definitely plan to do something there.”

ATCO Electric may confirm further plans in the next few months.

“We’ve been in the Stettler community since 1928 and we are happy to support this community,” said Gano.
