Right on the heels of a joint venture partnership with Securiguard, Coast Tsimshian Enterprises entered into an agreement with CT Tarpon.

Right on the heels of a joint venture partnership with Securiguard, Coast Tsimshian Enterprises has entered into another agreement with an electrical services company.

The Coast Tsimshian, comprised of the Metlakatla and Lax Kw’alaams Bands, and Tarpon Energy Services Ltd. announced the partnership on Aug. 4 to create CT Tarpon Electrical Services. With the agreement signed, the company said it will be pursuing electrical, instrumentation, construction and fabrication work related to port operations, mining and oil and gas development in the Northwest.

“CT Tarpon Electrical Services is strategically positioned in an area of tremendous potential economic growth. It is also an excellent complement to The Electrician, who was involved in the construction of the original port at Prince Rupert,” said Rick Wickland, president of Tarpon Energy Services Ltd.

“We have a long history of participation in the local economy through The Electrician. Through our new partnership with CTE, we can enjoy a good and beneficial relationship well into the future that will continue to support the local economies and the communities of Metlakatla and Lax Kw’alaams.”

For Metlakatla Chief Harold Leighton and Lax Kw’alaams Mayor Garry Reece, this recent partnership provides further opportunities for the members of their respective bands.

“I appreciate the opportunity that our partnership with Tarpon Energy Services represents. I look forward to many successful years of moving the bar ever higher in our mutual goals to improve our economic circumstances in a good way,” said Leighton.

“The leadership at Lax Kw’alaams continually stresses how critical it is for our future to continue to leverage employment and business development within our community. Partnerships with well-recognized organizations like Tarpon Energy Services, who have a proven reputation and a solid local presence, offer beneficial economic opportunities for all of us. We are confident that this new partnership will continue to create long term sustainable benefits for our community members.”
