Our Vision

Mullen Group is one of Canada’s largest organizations. Today, we operate approximately 4,300 trucks and power units and thousands of pieces of equipment that support our specialized service offerings in western Canada’s thriving energy sector. We have approximately 7,200 employees, owner-operators and independent sub-contractors.

The roots of our organization date back to 1949 when Roland Mullen, the founder of the Mullen Group, ventured out on his own as a young man with little more than one small truck and a desire to serve a couple of customers in rural Alberta.

This entrepreneurial spirit remains with us today and is the fundamental reason that the Mullen Group is successful. Through our independently operated business units we travel the highways and traverse the back roads to deliver a wide range of special services to thousands of customers in the energy sector.

But it is our people who are the custodians of our business. We know that it is people – not companies – who provide customer service. That’s why we’re so passionate about creating a great organization and a great place where our people can excel. A place where people are empowered to do their jobs well, are motivated to provide superb customer service and are able to do it all in a safe work environment. In fact nothing is more important to all of us here at Mullen Group than the safety of our employees. That’s why we provide good equipment, excellent training programs and hire only the very best.

Mullen Group’s commitment to effective safety and loss prevention systems is deeply entrenched in our fundamental belief that effective leadership is what drives Best-In-Class safety performance. Our leaders will be held accountable for their business unit’s safety performance by:

  • Demonstrating correct safety behaviours;
  • Creating effective HSE Management Systems;
  • Clearly defining the roles and responsibilities of our people;
  • Providing needed resources; and
  • Measuring, reviewing and continuously improving safety performance.

Establishing the Safety Culture “7 Key Elements”

  • Set The Standards: we let everyone know what is expected;

The Mullen Group IT Department is comprised of talented individuals with the technological and creative skills needed to bring “Best-In-Class” hardware, software, and telecommunications solutions to the Mullen Group of companies.

We endeavour to enhance our employees’ computing experience by offering quality shared services in the areas of: security, governance, research and development, procurement, implementation, training, and support.

The IT Department of Mullen Group is entrusted with the responsibility of overseeing the IT systems and communication networks utilized by the corporate office and the business units. In managing a diverse group of companies in Mullen Group, IT is presented with significant challenges due to the specific and often unique requirements of the business units.

The role of the IT Department can be best summarized as follows:

  • We are an Applications Service Provider to many business units which is administered through our IT Shared Services Program;
  • We provide IT oversight and audit functions to those business units that administer their own IT systems; and
  • We develop and administer the IT Strategy for the Mullen Group.

Culture And Values

At Mullen Group our success is founded in, and ultimately sustained, by our commitment to a basic set of values and by following proven business principles, cornerstones of the Mullen Group brand.


Integrity is what our Company was founded on and remains the basis of how we do business. Mullen Group strives to build mutually respectful and trustworthy relationships with our employees and our customers.

Our success in building these relationships is a result of our commitment to one of our guiding principles: “If we say it – we do it”.


Mullen Group expects the companies we invest in to be industry leaders. This is accomplished by challenging our people to enhance their leadership skills and overall abilities through continuous training.

People Focus

At Mullen Group, we understand that companies do not provide superior customer service, PEOPLE DO.

We believe that people prosper within an organization when they have the competitive tools and a supportive environment in which to work. People within the Mullen Group are empowered and supported to make decisions. They are given responsibility and challenged to be accountable for the results of their actions.

Our growing organization is well-suited to those individuals who not only want to excel at what they do, but want the opportunity and the challenge to try new and exciting ventures, allowing them to move ahead.

Operational Excellence

Providing customers with high quality customer service is the key to any successful organization. Mullen Group strives to achieve a superior level of customer service by focusing on the goal of attaining “Excellence in everything we do”. Mullen Group subscribes to the principles of Total Quality Management. This program encourages each employee to strive for quality in every aspect of our business.

On the Road to Quality

Mullen Group has designed its own program, branded “On the Road to Quality”. This nationally recognized, award-winning program is designed to help us provide the highest levels of customer service and maintain a high-quality work environment for our people.

Training and Development

In addition to providing specific job-related and safety training, we encourage ALL of our people to continue their education, training and skills upgrading. Our overall training-related goal is to have every individual in the organization receive a minimum of 20 hours of education and skills upgrading each year.

For this reason we have partnered with SAIT to provide a 160-hour Business Management Certificate Program to all interested employees.

Investing in Our People

Mullen Group believes that to be a Best in Class organization and an Employer of Choice we must invest in our people. In addition to education, training and comprehensive safety programs, we offer the following initiatives:

  • Employee and Family Assistance Program;
  • Roland and Leona Mullen Scholarship;
  • Benefit plans;
  • Opportunity for advancement – we promote from within the Mullen Group;
  • Transfer opportunities within the Mullen Group;

As quality guru Dr. W. Edwards Deming once said:
“It is the right of all people to have joy in their work.”

We take that statement very seriously.
