September 13, 2021  By Crane & Hoist Canada Staff

The U.S.-based contractor Milender White has joined Calgary-based construction giant Graham Group of Companies.

Milender White is a real estate development and construction firm headquartered in Colorado, with offices in Southern California. The company will continue to operate under its own brand, maintaining its existing systems, programs, locations and personnel.

Company founder Bryon White will remain president and CEO of Milender White. White will join the Graham management team, working with Colin Aitken, executive vice-president of Graham’s Building Division.

“This is an exciting partnership that I’m certain will develop into further value-added benefits to our clients and opportunities for our people,” says Andy Trewick, president and CEO of Graham, in a statement. “Milender White has an exceptional reputation for being a reliable construction partner that delivers complex projects on-time and on-budget, and we’re thrilled to welcome them as partners.”


More than 60 employee-owners of Milender White will become part of the Graham team as a result of the merger.

“We are very excited to join the Graham family,” says White. “When we were initially considering a merger, it was extremely important to me that we find a partner who is rooted in the same core values and one that would support what is best for all employees in the long term.

“Graham, headquartered north of the border in Denver’s sister city, Calgary, is that partner. Graham truly matches the Milender White culture.”
