We began when 16 entrepreneurs purchased the Canadian industrial cleaning and oilfield stimulation operations from Magnachem Ltd., its American parent company in 1973.
A few years later, in 1976, Bill Mowatt (founder of CEDA) and his partners made an imperative decision to introduce dealers into the organization. This allowed employees to operate their own businesses under the CEDA umbrella. By introducing the prospect of ownership, CEDA expanded its reach and began conducting business in five provinces and three states.
In 2013, CEDA and its 26 related businesses came together as one unified company all under the CEDA brand.
Today, CEDA employs more than 2,000 talented and passionate employees located in over 20 sites throughout Canada and the United States. CEDA provides specialty industrial and environmental services to meet the needs of our diverse clients, timeframes and locations.
