Field Operations & Acheson Service Centre

Acheson Fleet

FortisAlberta’s Service Centre near Acheson, AB is home to several groups, including our Warehouse Operations, Technical Services, and Fleet teams. Our Warehouse and Yard Operators organize and store materials, prepare work orders, and ensure the timely delivery of required materials to sites across FortisAlberta’s service territory. Our Technical Services team ensures material and equipment is maintained, calibrated, verified, repaired, modified, or properly recycled, while Fleet ensures that FortisAlberta’s equipment, from pool vehicles to heavy equipment is maintained to support all other business units.

These groups play a critical role in ensuring FortisAlberta’s Field Operations groups have the materials and tools required to deliver to our customers. To be successful in any of these roles, candidates need exceptional attention to detail, must be well organized, and ideally have a technical background.
