Nelson River Construction was formed in Winnipeg and operated its business between Montreal, Toronto and Winnipeg in the early years. In the 1940’s the company moved to 101 Dawson Road, in Winnipeg Manitoba where it repurposed the site of an old homestead, with multiple buildings, to become our Main Office, Repair and Maintenance Facility and storage yard for our growing fleet of equipment.  Today, our head office has relocated to 730 Taylor Avenue in Winnipeg while our Repair and Maintenance Facility and Storage Yard remains at 101 Dawson Road.
Incorporated in 1923 to build sewer and water facilities, Nelson River soon expanded into concrete and asphalt paving. As our reputation grew, so did our company. Now in 2023 and in our 4th generation of ownership, NRC has hit an amazing milestone of 100 years in business. Our longevity and success is due principally to the incredibly talented people who have worked in the Nelson River organization over this timeframe.
