KMC is a privately owned Canadian company that began operations in southern Saskatchewan and Alberta in 1949. The company started as a contract road builder and expanded to include railroads, dams, and other significant earthworks over the company’s history. As Western Canada developed, KMC completed projects throughout Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, and the Yukon and Northwest Territories. KMC Mining started working in the Alberta oilsands industry in 1973 and has achieved significant growth as this sector has developed over the last 40 plus years.
