When the Alberta Government decided to contract out routine repair and maintenance of bridges in 1996, Carmacks was ready to move in and made bridge activities a core business. Because of the specialized nature of the work requiring specific skills and abilities, Carmacks sought out ex-government employees with the training and experience specific to the business and employed them to provide these services.
