PowerTel Utilities Contractors Limited originated in Fort William, Ontario in 1968. The company has grown to become one of Canada’s leading high voltage contractors offering services in transmission lines, substations and distribution systems including all phases from development to commissioning.
PowerTel has achieved a long history of success from years of investment in industry-leading safety programs, quality management systems, personnel training and equipment acquisition. Our fleet of PowerTraxx Off-road Utility Vehicles is the largest and most modern in North America.
PowerTel has constructed 1000s of kilometers of powerline in Canada and the United States for licensed transmitters, local distribution companies, First Nations communities, industrial facilities, and private installations. Many utilities have placed PowerTel on their preferred emergency response list.
