Our History

FWS proudly celebrated its 65th anniversary in 2018. Originating as a small general contractor in 1953, FWS steadily evolved into one of Canada’s most reputable project development and turn-key construction firms operating in a growing number of industry sectors.

Continuing to lead as Canada’s foremost slipform concrete contractor, FWS serves the needs of a growing number of industries within the agribusiness, commercial, energy, industrial, mining, residential, and transportation sectors. We have a history of delivering successful projects to clients who demand uncompromising safety, quality, timely project execution, transparent and accountable costing and a business relationship built on trust.


As part of our 65th anniversary we have complied a timeline of our history to celebrate and honour the people and ideas that have brought us to where we are today.
