Canadian-based FER-PAL Construction Opens US Headquarters In Elgin, Illinois

FER-PAL Construction opened the Canadian-based water main rehabilitation company’s U.S. headquarters in Elgin, Illinois, creating 50 new jobs.

FER-PAL Construction, based in Toronto, provides municipalities with water main rehabilitation services using “trenchless technology.” The firm utilizes a Cure-In-Place-Pipe, which is inserted into existing water mains and creates a new pipe within the old existing pipe, eliminating the need to dig long trenches to replace an aging water main. This technology has provided municipalities across the United States with a cost-effective alternative to traditional water main replacement.

“We are truly excited to open our newest office in Elgin, Illinois. It is great opportunity for the state, the local community and for FER-PAL,” FER-PAL CEO Shaun McKaigue said.

“FER-PAL joins a growing list of companies who are choosing Illinois to grow their business,” Gov. Pat Quinn said. “The company is also ideally situated to participate in the Clean Water Initiative, which is putting people back to work updating our water systems and infrastructure across Illinois.”
