During the long-standing
relationship with Syncrude, KMC has completed work in most facets of oil sands
operations from overburden removal to re-contouring if reclaimed land. Although
overburden removal has been the primary job, KMC has provided solutions

construct haul roads, overpasses and jetties. The rental of KMC equipment has
also helped provide the owner with resources necessary to keep their operation
running on schedule.
