His first job was hauling gravel in a 1938 Chevrolet Maple Leaf Truck to neighboring properties from his father’s farm. Two years later, Harold Sutherland purchased a 1957 John Deere Track Loader which was frequently used on various jobsites. He continued to pursue different projects like Township and Municipal work, hauling gravel and supplying various types of material to builders working on new homes.

Over the years, Harold Sutherland Construction Ltd. has gained a solid reputation in construction and aggregate excellence. Municipal and Ministry of Transportation highway jobs, sewer and water main projects, and hot mix asphalt tasks are few of the many types of work that Harold Sutherland Construction Ltd. involves itself in. Today, the company operates over 20 licensed pits and quarries throughout Grey and Bruce Counties and Manitoulin Island.

Most importantly, the great dedication, hard work and support of employees and colleagues has enabled the company to grow and succeed year after year – this is the greatest contribution towards the success of the company.

Harold, Jennifer, Mike and staff can always be seen working hard to improve area roadways and residential areas each and every day. And after 56 years in business, the site of green trucks on Municipal roadways has become a natural familiarity throughout the community.
