History of Silvacom
Silvacom is a 100% employee-owned, Canadian natural resource management company established in Edmonton in 1983. Our founding partners, Tom Grabowski and Bob Morton are both graduates of the University of Alberta.
During our early years, we focused on consulting services for government and research operations and the innovative application of ruggedized hand-held computers for field data collection. Growing into the industrial market, we pioneered the use of Geographic Information Systems (GIS), advanced database technologies, mobile computing and analytics for resource inventories, management, mapping and land base planning.
We are committed to building a great company: an enterprise that we can be proud of, that engages in meaningful work and one that makes a positive difference in the world.
