Regional Manager, Arrow Environmental Services

Job Locations CA-BC-Kamloops
Company Arrow Environmental

Overview

Over 100 years in business, the Arrow Group of Companies is an industry leading transportation, distribution and materials handling organization with an emerging presence and growing focus on completing earthworks projects in the organics management and civil construction sectors.

 

Arrow’s newest division, Arrow Environmental Services (AES), was created with the focus on growing a presence in these key areas and over the last 5 years has experienced exponential growth. AES focuses on 3 key services:

  • onsite organics management services;
  • beneficial management of organic waste streams; and
  • civil construction efforts.

 

AES is complimented by its sister divisions NutriGrow, Western Canada’s largest marketer of soils, soil amendments and composts, and Arrowhead, an Indigenous-owned joint-venture civil construction and progressive reclamation company.

 

Today, AES has emerged as the leading resource for organics management solutions in British Columbia, handling more than 300,000 tonnes of organics (biosolids, wood waste, food and yard waste, etc.) annually, operating from twelve locations, with active organics management contracts in excess of $60 million.  AES leveraged this presence in the organics management space to capitalize on construction opportunities within the mining sector.

 

AES and the Arrow Group’s commitment and approach to business is to deliver projects in partnership with both industry and local communities with the goal of building capacity and strengthening local economies. At the end of the day, we want to leave project legacies we are proud of and work hard to create meaningful innovative projects in pursuit of social and business success.

 

We have a history of building strong, long-standing working relationships with Indigenous and non-Indigenous communities where we work. Further, our four-pillar approach to Indigenous engagement supports efforts to initiate and engage in programs and activities that strengthen relationships between industry and Indigenous communities across BC.

 

The AES division is headquartered in British Columbia’s southern interior in beautiful Kamloops. Kamloops offers arguably the perfect balance of lifestyle and affordability, with four distinct seasons and over 2,000 hours of annual sunshine.
