Over 130 years building Niagara
Walker Industries, the parent company of Walker Aggregates, is a 5th generation family-owned Canadian company that has operated from its base in the Niagara Region for over 130 years.
With facilities across Canada and the United States and employing more than 1100 people, we take pride in providing materials and services that build and support communities. Our group of companies offers aggregates, paving and construction, emulsions and environmental waste and recycling solutions.
Commitment to Communities
We are committed to the communities we serve because we live there too. We encourage our employees to be involved and give back, and we afford them time and opportunities to do so. Our company acknowledges that our success to date is dependent on thriving communities and, since 1887, have worked to contribute to their social and economic development.
Each operating division has the opportunity to support charitable initiatives such as sponsorships, fundraising assistance or monetary donations. We admire the hard work that organizations in our communities do to improve social conditions and are committed to supporting those causes.
Employees also place high value on the natural environment and tomorrow’s generations. This is embodied by our environmental code of practice known as the EARTH 1st program. We are committed to operating efficiently, acknowledging that we are a part of our community and environment and not a separate entity, reducing our impact, taking time to plan, and aiming for continuous improvement. Walker intends to be an environmental leader and innovator in our industries.
Superior Safety Culture
Our employees’ health, wellness and safety is paramount. Walker’s Superior Safety Culture is driven by a commitment that flows between all levels of management and employees. Everyone has a vested interest in workplace safety. All employees have the right to work safe and go home to their families at the end of each workday.
