Sterling Operations was started by Sterling as a way to pay his way through university and to put a little cash in the pocket. Five years later, Sterling Operations now shares that opportunity to help put numerous summer students through university and post-secondary education every year. Working alongside grain and cattle farmers and listening carefully to their concerns while fulfilling our obligations to quality product has been rewarding. Many landowners now insist that all oil and gas companies using their land hire Sterling Operations. Starting as a family business, safe and efficient work is paramount, and we have committed ourselves to providing superior services and timely solutions to all of our customers while maintaining an excellent safety record.
In 2018 Carl Torgrimson was hired as an assistant and with his background in environmental sciences and herbicide implementation he quickly became a supervisor, then manager of the vegetation division. Working closely with Sterling he oversaw many projects over the next three years, until, in 2022, Carl Torgrimson bought the company. Carl Torgrimson grew up in the peace region and went to UBC for Environmental Sciences. After achieving his Professional Agrologist status in 2020 he has worked closely with industry leaders to stabilize eco-systems affected by industry activities in the peace region.
