Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year (2012 Finalist)
Infratech Corporation was founded in 1987. In 1989 Don and Dan Guenette took over sole ownership of the company, which designs and manufactures incineration-related products and provides state-of-the-art infrared imaging services. Infratech identified a need for specialized equipment in the production well testing industry, which led to the creation of Alberta Welltest Incinerators in 2005, and American Welltest Incinerators in 2012.
The original infrared inspection division provided the platform for future growth with regular maintenance work in more than 300 plants across Canada. The incineration division has provided equipment to clients around the world, and AWI is a leader in their industry.
“Our organization has family roots and we try to maintain the small-company feel and attitude,” says Don. Adds Dan, “We’ve been very fortunate to have some great people working along with us from the very beginning.
“Our main business philosophy is to always strive to be the best at what you do and to not settle for second best.”
