Saskatchewan’s highway crews and road builders are springing into action for the 2015-16 construction season.
A record $842 million budget means numerous construction sites are popping up across the province. This budget includes $560 million allocated to major capital projects including twinning projects, passing lanes and overpasses.

Finning International Inc. announced last week it has reached an agreement to purchase the operating assets of the Cat dealership of Kramer Ltd. for approximately $230 million, subject to working capital adjustments. In 2014, the acquired dealership business generated approximately $275 million in revenue. Finning will become the approved Cat dealer in Saskatchewan in July of this year, subject to customary closing conditions. After a remarkable 70 years of service in Saskatchewan, the Kramer family has decided to retire from the equipment dealership business.
