Noble Construction provides civil, mechanical and construction services to large mining and industrial corporations across the Prairies.

Founded and headquartered in Esterhazy, Saskatchewan, Noble Construction’s values are centered around community. With training initiatives to engage the local workforce and partnerships with local First Nations businesses, they are committed to empowering rural communities. Support from the Accelerated Growth Service (AGS) helped Noble take their business further and gave them the tools they needed to keep growing.

The Challenge: Acquiring capital to support growth

Before joining AGS, Noble Construction had a plan to take their business further but needed help acquiring the capital to make it happen. The business approached AGS with the goal to expand services to underground mining with one of the biggest players in the Potash mining industry. To make it happen, they needed capital equipment financing to acquire the mining equipment. Their Innovation Advisor helped guide them through the process and put them in touch with multiple government partners who offered the kind of support they needed. With support from AGS, Noble construction has created an underground mining service line and identified new growth opportunities. Since then, Noble has seen significant growth and created over 20 full-time mining related employment opportunities.
