Graham is Committed to Help Rebuild Calgary after Devastating Flooding

With a CDN$500,000 pledge of cash and in-kind services - including volunteering its time, services and equipment - Graham Management Services is committed to supporting the significant efforts required to clean up and rebuild the City of Calgary.

"This natural disaster has affected our employees, our communities, and our clients and partners. With Graham possessing the means to provide assistance with the relief efforts, we have pledged to actively contribute and participate," says Grant Beck, Graham's President and CEO. "We love our City and we're proud to be Calgarians - supporting and helping to rebuild Calgary is something our employees are compelled to do."

At Graham's operations and yard in the south east part of the City unaffected by the flooding, a wide range of equipment including skid steers, back hoes, a wheel loader, large generators, light plants, hoses, and industrial-sized fans and heaters are ready to be deployed.

"The fact that the city, province and country are coming together is a true testament to how enduring we are as a nation," Beck concludes. "It's inspiring to see us all working together to pull through this."
