About Eric Auger & Sons Contracting

In 1978, Eric Auger started his first company in the logging industry. Named "Auger Logging", this small company quickly received recognition for its achievements as the company grew in size. Eric launched another company in 1988 "Eric Auger & Son’s Contracting Ltd." Six busy years later, Eric's new company had become specifically involved in oilfield construction and slowly removed itself from the logging industry.

Currently managed by Eric Auger's son, Dennis Auger, the Company has grown and is serving the Wabasca and Back Lake communities and its surrounding oil and gas industries.  Eric's daughter, Gloria Auger-Yellowknee is Office Manager for the company, and son, John Auger is Shop Foreman. In keeping with the tradition of remembering family roots, Eric Auger & Son's Contracting Ltd remains very involved with community related projects, working in conjunction with The Municipal District of Opportunity #17 and Bigstone Cree Nation to support the local economy.

This is primarily achieved by:

  • Employing Local People
  • Working with Local Companies
  • Subcontracting with Local Operators
  • Utilizing Local Suppliers
  • Supporting Numerous Grassroots Non-Profit Activities
The average number of employees is seventy-five at any given time, but that total doubles and sometimes triples during the winter months. Eric Auger & Sons is a safety minded company with an experienced, fully trained staff. Management and Supervisors are always looking for innovative ways to improve safety for employees as well as the community they serve.  Remaining true to the belief that the strongest Company asset is the workforce, Eric Auger & Sons continues to establish good working relationships with each employee. 

Though working with and hiring of others from outside our district is sometimes necessary, local people are given first opportunity. In addition, we proudly support and contribute to non-profit organizations within the community.
