From the age of nine, Jim has been a fixture at Condrain. Spending Saturdays with his father Fred at jobsites created a strong bond, not just between father and son, but with the company as well. From his youth, Jim knew he wanted to be an integral part of the family business. He learned about sewers, gravel, trenches, big machinery and more, so that by 18 he could officially begin work on a jobsite – Stelco Nanticoke Generating station to be exact. From his years of experience following his early days with the company, Jim led Condrain into new territory by heading affiliate companies like Con-Strada, Strada Aggregates, and Strada Crush, turning the now amalgamated companies into one of Canada’s largest road building groups. An integral part of Condrain’s forward motion, Jim is focused on retaining a highly skilled and motivated staff, continuing the legacy of his father and uncles, continuing Condrain’s dedication to quality, and setting the bar for all of its many industries.
