Arthur & Harold Lundrigan
Arthur and Harold Lundrigan are well respected for building much of the infrastructure that exists in Newfoundland & Labrador today.
From the small sawmill and lumber company started in the 1930’s to the establishment of W.J.

These included work in manufacturing and distributing building materials and products, developing residential, commercial and industrial real estate, building local roads and highways and helping build hospitals, schools and training facilities throughout Newfoundland.
The Company invested in other business opportunities related to their core competencies. Arthur and Harold Lundrigan were also involved in the construction for start-up for the Bay d’Espoir Hydro Development, the Upper Churchill Hydro Power project, and Come-by-Chance oil refinery.
