Arkel started as an industrial construction company with a client base of local industrial and municipal power plants. In a post WWII environment, the business flourished. In the late 60’s and 70s, Arkel became an international operation that spaned the globe. Soon, Arkel International was working on major projects in the US, Africa, Central and South America and places around the world. From designing Sugar Plants in Sudan, growing Rose farms in Kenya, to conducting feasibility studies in Russia, we kind of like to think of ourselves as a “new day pioneer.”
We don’t just build buildings, supply power, deliver goods, or convert sugar into power. If our employees think of our work in its essential form, we feel it is much more inspiring and definitely more rewarding. It also instills a greater need to fulfill on promises to our customer. Whether its true or not, it helps us to focus on enduring excellent service—because it is more than just about us. We don’t just sell a service, we sell peace of mind.
We’re proud of and cherish our rich, colorful history. But like the rest of the world, we’ve changed. We’re a new group of companies. Eight diverse companies make up the Arkel Group which continues to grow based on market demand and opportunities that attract us.
