Mullen Acquisition

On April 30, 2010, Smook Bros. was acquired by Mullen Group Ltd. and now as Smook Contractors Ltd., is a member of the Mullen family of companies.

Although both Ted and Chris have since retired from the business, the company continues their proud legacy under the leadership of JR Beavis providing Northern Manitoba with local supply of quality heavy construction services.


Smook Contractors Ltd. has a long history in the province of Manitoba. Beginning in 1949, five Smook brothers (Peter, Jerry, Bill, Steve and Nick) started the business of running a saw mill and building municipal roads in and around Vita. Over the next two decades, the company, then known as Smook Bros., embraced a number of business opportunities throughout the province. In 1967, when Smook Bros. obtained three years worth of year-round work in northern Manitoba from Inco (now Vale), the Department of Highways and the new City of Thompson, the company made the move north. In 1979-80, a new generation took over the reins of Smook Bros. so that by the end of 1980, Nick’s sons Edward (Ted) and Chris shared ownership of Smook Bros. Over the course of the next 30+ years, Smook Bros. grew and prospered under their leadership into one of the largest private-sector success stories based in northern Manitoba.
