Presence Establishes Focal Point for Work with North American Oil and Gas/Mining Leaders
(Boston, Mass. â€“ March 11, 2014) Maine Pointe, an operations management and implementation firm that is a leader in sustainable global supply chain transformation, has opened a Calgary, Alberta, office at Banker's Hall, 888 3rd Street, South West (Telephone 403.444.5995).
The office establishes a continuing focal point in Canada for opportunities with North American Oil and Gas, and Mining, companies across the region. Recent and ongoing engagements include CNRL (Canadian Natural Resources, Ltd.), Irving Oil, Philadelphia Energy Solutions (formerly Sunoco), Mosaic, Potash Corp., and Suncor.
"The growth of Maine Pointe into Western Canada is the result, in part, of recognition for the firm's specialized operations knowledge across multiple industry supply and value chains â€“ where the application of best practices is particularly desirable by market leaders seeking to grapple with an unprecedented scale of industry change," notes Maine Pointe President Anthony (Tony) Prosser.
"Companies in Western Canada have particular operational and value creation needs that may be effectively addressed by our senior team, all of whom have years of frontline leadership experience across an array of competitive contexts," adds Prosser. "Maine Pointe also integrates a financially accountable, bottom-line approach to Sustainability that aligns with new expectations in the Oil and Gas, and Mining industries for a greater emphasis on responsible business practices â€“ such as attentiveness to 'license to operate', regulatory compliance, and risk management concerns."
