The Dawson Group will rename one of its companies to reflect the fact it has experienced significant new growth in B.C.
Starting immediately, Interior Roads Ltd. becomes Dawson Road Maintenance Ltd. A key factor in the decision to change the name centres around Interior Roads’ move into new parts of the province.
The company recently acquired the highways maintenance contract for the North Peace (Service Area 22), which encompasses northeast B.C. from Fort St. John to the Yukon and Alberta borders. As well, the company maintains highways and roads in Service Areas 16 and 17, covering the Cariboo from Cache Creek to north of Williams Lake to Bella Coola in the west.
Sam McCarthy, Division Manager of Operations for Dawson Road Maintenance, said he’s extremely excited about the new name.
“With our move into northern B.C., the new name makes a lot of sense. Our operations have expanded beyond the Interior,” he said.
“As well, the name reinforces our connection within the Dawson Group, which has such a tremendous history in construction in B.C.
We are fortunate to have access to the companies within the Dawson Group as well as their equipment and expertise, all of which allows us to provide road maintenance services in our areas more efficiently.
“We are in the business of safely connecting our communities and being part of the Dawson Group helps us to do that,” McCarthy said.
With the new name comes a fresh logo. It will replace the company’s current logo on vehicles and signs in all service areas. It’s important to note that the new name will not affect the company’s corporate structure, status or operations.
The company will continue to operate according to its contracts and agreements with customers, suppliers, unions, government and other partners.
