Arpi’s North is the corporate successor of Arpi’s Industries. In 1963 Arpi Berdin began building up Arpi’s Industries in Calgary with his hands, his skills and a committed approach to the best possible service. After over fifty years in business, Arpi’s maintains this old-school approach to doing the best job possible for our clients. Expanding its operations to the north in 1974 to build iconic landmarks such as West Edmonton Mall and Canada Place, Don Grundy and Ted Trainor who joined the Arpi’s team over 40 years ago, relocated to ensure the success of these projects. In 1994 Todd Grundy joined the Arpi’s forces full-time in the fabrication shop, developing his skills in the trade and working his way up to Foreman and then to Residential Manager.
In 2007 company founder, Arpi Berdin approached his senior managers with an offer to purchase the Edmonton operations of Arpi’s Industries. In an inspiring entrepreneurial story, Don Grundy, Ted Trainor and Todd Grundy made the leap from trade qualified managers, to company owners. With their enduring relationships in the construction industry, along with dedication, attention to detail and strong core values shared by all, Arpi’s North has distinguished themselves as the leading Mechanical Contractor in the industry.
Today, Arpi’s North forces number over 500 and still growing with high-profile projects that include the Rogers Place Arena, MacEwan Centre for Arts and Culture, Edmonton International Airport, numerous University of Alberta projects, Alberta Gallery of Art, MacDonald Island Redevelopment Project and West Edmonton Mall. In 2015 Todd Grundy acquired controlling interest of the Company, with his expertise and innovation he leads the Arpi’s North team with the same committed approach, prioritizing trust, respect and ownership in every partnership.
