Trenchless Technology Canada Editor’s Message – It’s a Trenchless Celebration

Mike Kezdi

In May 2014, a major milestone took place. I attended my first trenchless industry event. Okay, that might be a personal milestone, but it’s related to the milestone I am referring to – the launch of Trenchless Technology Canada.

That’s right! We’re having a celebration over here at our world headquarters. Initially born as a one-off publication – in April 2014 – to help promote our biannual Trenchless Technology Road Show in Niagara Falls.

For that issue, we took what we knew from our – at that point 20 years – of publishing the leading magazine focused on the North American trenchless industry and narrow-focused it on Canada. The reception to that May 2014 issue was outstanding.

The team at Trenchless Technology and Benjamin Media Inc. (our publisher) quickly realized that Trenchless Technology Canada filled a hole in the trenchless media landscape.

So, what is a media company to do? We made the decision to publish a second issue in Fall 2014 and begin the quarterly publication of Trenchless Technology Canada in 2015.

In her Fall 2014 Editor’s Message, Sharon Bueno wrote, “It’s not like there is a shortage of material and issues to bring to readers. The Canadian trenchless market has always been a pretty robust and expanding market in both rehabilitation and new installation work.” And that has held true for the last 10 years.

I am proud to say that I’ve been a part of this dedicated issue since its inception in 2014, and I took over spearheading our coverage with our October 2015 issue.

I, like I am sure many of you, have learned a lot along the way. After all, that’s one of the goals of our magazine – to educate and promote trenchless technologies in underground infrastructure construction.
I encourage you to be part of this great coverage as we busily move along to the second quarter of 2024.

Whether you are a system owner, distributor, contractor, engineer or manufacturer, my email inbox and phone are always open. Feel free to reach out to me – contact info is at the end of the column – with news, story ideas or other ways in which we can improve the magazine.
