Hard working and diligent, Richard began in the construction industry in 1987 as a labourer for PCL construction.

Looking for a new opportunity and challenge, Richard began his scaffolding career in the industrial sector. Now with over 30 years experience, two Journeyman trade designations, and a multitude of safety and leadership trainings, he is someone you can trust to get you where you need to go safely and within your schedule.

Since the early 1980’s, George has worked in the Alberta construction scene starting as a labourer in the booming high-rise era, achieving his carpentry Red Seal Certificate in 1988. Shortly after, he shifted gears and began his scaffolding career working for most of the scaffold companies and major contractors within Alberta. In 2008, George put his skills, training and experience to work as an Estimator for Armour Equipment. He enjoys the continual challenges scaffolding provides and the opportunity to meet new people and find efficient and effective solutions to the problems he is presented daily. Providing his clients with as much relevant and practical information as possible to help their projects be successful, is what rewards him the most about his job.

With a passion for working with his hands, Aaron ventured away from a successful sales career of over 8 years in Halifax and began his start in the trades as a carpenter.

Top of his class, he advanced to Journeyman Scaffolder in only two years.

Safety & Quality Coordinator
Sascha started his career with Stuart Olson as a laborer while still in High School. Over the years he has had the opportunity to work in various fields, such as heavy equipment operations, transportation, Oil & Gas shutdowns/operations and production. Sascha has worked as an employee and a manager, running crews with up to 2500 people. During this time, he discovered a passion for Safety and decided to take his hands-on knowledge and put it to use in a field where he felt there was significant room for improvement.
He has spent the past 10 years in safety specializing in many different areas and creating the strongest safety culture possible. He is happy to finally have found his fit with Armour Equipment and looks forward to a long and exciting adventure with them.
“True safety does not come from an off the shelf safety program… but through an instilled safety culture. Understanding that just implementing new policies and procedures does not cultivate a safety culture…it is just a mere by product. This is one of the biggest challenges we face today in the safety industry.
People create culture!
As safety professionals, it is our duty to help everybody come together to ensure their integration into this culture.”
– Sascha Grund
