Meet the Executive Team!
Meet the Executive Team!
In 1983, Ron Hinz and Ed Cyrankiewicz founded Delnor Construction Ltd. and over 3 decades later they take pride in the reputation their company has established. Their business philosophy was always to build relationships not just buildings, and that philosophy still stands today.
Although not actively involved in the daily construction activities, Ron and Ed’s primary role is to guide the operations of the group of companies while remaining engaged in the quality and controls of all corporate activities.
You need great people to have a great company - We believe that we have accomplished this with the steadfast efforts from our entire executive team and project support personnel.
Delnor was built upon friendship and family – our Executive Team is proof of that. Since 1983, we have grown to over 180 staff, spread across 2 offices in Alberta. Our head office, located in Edmonton, houses a corporate staff to support operations teams in Edmonton and Calgary.
