Working with Devco
We don’t work with just anyone
What makes Devco… Devco? Throughout our years in business it has been an ongoing question that has been difficult to answer. It took us a while, but we figured out why. We are ever evolving to what our Customer’s require, which can make us a difficult company to define, until you are our Customer.
Devco Consulting has been in operation since 2001 as a complete work site visual solutions provider. Devco has more than 24 team members and two locations in Alberta. Our production facility resides in a 7000 sqft building in Edmonton which houses our R&D, Sign production, 3D CNC, and Graphic Design Divisions. In Fort McMurray, we work out of a facility and laydown yard in the Fort Hills Oilsands operation.
That tells a bit of who we are now, but where did we come from? The answer is simple: Customers like you.
Robert Hopp is the Founder and President of Devco Consulting. Back in 1991, Robert owned an ad agency that specialized in Yellow Page advertising and cost optimization. This proved to be highly successful with multiple customers, the largest being all of the Lafarge operations in North America. Over the years, Lafarge wanted more and more types of work and Devco was born.
Starting as a Graphic Design house, we expanded into Safety Program Visual Design with Lafarge and then Suncor. We provided the Visual Branding for the award winning Suncor “Get a Grip on Safety” and “Are You in the Line of Fire?” Safety Programs. Suncor didn’t stop there with us and we moved onto full in house manufacturing for on site signage, decals and other Safety Program materials. We are now a fully vertically integrated supplier for our Customers, from the Site Planning to Visual Standards, Worksite Branding, Production, Installation and Maintenance.
We continue to grow our products and services with our Customers and are excited about the challenges that continue to come!
Being our Customer
Not being open to the public has its advantages
We treat each customer like family. Kind of a generic thing to say and probably one that you have heard being said before, so why would we say that too?
There is no other way to say it (that we’ve thought of at least). We care about our Customers, we support our Customers, we do anything in our power to help our Customers succeed. We have a very small and exclusive list of Customers and do not add to that list lightly. If you are a Customer of Devco’s we are going to do everything possible to build trust and a long term mutually beneficial relationship.
Our Customers made us. We know that and will never forget.
Devco has been a huge supporter of the Wood Buffalo Food Bank for the past 5 years. They have been instrumental in supplying us with signage for all of our Food Drives, fundraising events, and our building at no cost, which allows us to allocate our funds directly to helping those in need.
Even with tight deadlines and large orders, the Devco staff has always been exceptionally helpful, pleasant and provide the material on time and with great quality. Their assistance has helped us greatly in spreading the awareness of hunger in our community.Arianna Johnson
