Message from Our Executive
Pennecon is a company with a storied history 40 years in the making. We’ve been involved in some of the largest construction projects undertaken in Newfoundland and Labrador; we’ve invested in programs and facilities that have become pillars in the community; and we’ve paved the way in health, safety and environmental standards in the construction industry.
Our commitment to excellence and innovation will ensure we continue to shape our story for another 40 years…and beyond.
We will continue to grow and evolve by continuously improving our products and performance, by forming partnerships that allow us to capitalize on large-scale developments when they’re ongoing and ramp down accordingly to be right-sized for smaller projects in the future, by hiring the very best people and putting supports in place to ensure we retain them, and by continuing to exceed customer expectations and industry standards.
As the Chief Executive Officer, it is not only my mandate, but my distinct pleasure, to lead and inspire Pennecon’s best-in-class team in our heavy civil, energy and real estate divisions. It is this team of 1,500 highly skilled professionals, trades people and craftsmen that enables us to surpass expectations and achieve success.
A top-notch service provider, an employer of choice, and an invaluable community partner – that’s the esteem in which we’re held by our customers, employees, and stakeholders. And they are qualities we will work diligently to maintain by continuing to work the Pennecon way: with an energy and a passion that ensures excellence… with a steadfast commitment to safety and the environment… with the synergy of many and the simplicity of one.

At Pennecon, there are two things we take great pride in: our work and our people.
Our work in the construction industry spans three divisions: Heavy Civil, Energy and Real Estate. They’re undertaking exceptional work on projects we’re thrilled to be a part of: the Hebron Project, the Long Harbour Processing Plant, the Lower Churchill Project, and White Rose Extension, to name a few.
However, this work would not be possible without the 1,500-strong team of energetic and skilled experts who make it happen each and every day. It’s our employees who have helped Pennecon grow and become the industry leader we are today, and we are lucky to have them working with us.
Operating responsibly is Pennecon’s number one priority. Over the years we have reached countless safety milestones and made regular contributions to the community. Our pride in the places we work sets us apart from many organizations. We commit to the work, the community and the environment on every project.
At Pennecon, we know we must remain innovative, energetic and adaptive. Backed by our solid management systems, we constantly work to improve our products and performances. We simply aspire to exceed customers’ expectations and industry standards in all that we do.
We will keep moving forward with enthusiasm, commitment and pride. There are great projects on the horizon and everyone at Pennecon is excited for the future.
Larry Puddister, P.Eng. Executive Chairman×
