Efficiency: Yes, we utilize the most powerful, state-of-the-art hydrovac equipment on the market, but at PROMERE our goal is to outwork the competition which is where the real efficiency gains come from.

Transparency: Our client approach is simple; we take the extra steps to ensure transparency with our clients. This is accomplished through honest, open, and professional communication.

Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Craig Butchko was instilled with a prairie boy work ethic. After spending nearly a decade gaining experience and absorbing information from a number of unforgettable mentors, Craig branched out on his own with a long-term vision in mind and founded PROMERE. In his spare time, Craig enjoys spending time with his wife and 2 boys, working on the yard, and watching Saskatchewan Roughriders football games.

“We will never be unreachable. It comes down to who our clients want to work with and to us that comes down to exceptional customer service and trust.”



HydroVac excavation is a non-destructive form of excavation commissioned by construction and maintenance crews to maintain the integrity of valuable underground infrastructure where a mechanical excavation method would be unsafe. HydroVacing utilizes high pressure water to create a slurry which is then sucked up by a high powered vacuum for storage on the HydroVac prior to being disposed of at an offloading facility. PROMERE is available 24 hours per day, 7 days per week to assist with any of your project requirements.
