Kevin Goldberg – An Inspiring Canadian Feature
Kevin is the CEO and president of SoilFLO. SoilFLO has been in operations since June of 2019. Since then, it has been the trailblazer in implementing digital tools for our most forgotten construction sector – the earthmovers.
Those involved in the Land Development Supply Chain and earthmoving remain reliant on paper-based systems. These systems are leaving them exposed to liability and loss to their bottom line. Hours are spent reconciling paperwork and organizing accounts payable. Using SoilFLO, contractors, developers and consultants can track soil excavation, aggregate import and related administrative processes, such as managing hauler invoices.
Since founding with the company, Kevin has added 10 new employees and SoilFLO is used on over 100 construction sites per day.
The Future of Earthworks
The earthmoving industry lacks easily accessible data. It is often unknown where soil ends up and many companies don’t understand the reuse opportunities available. Improper disposal of soils can result in leaching chemicals into nearby ground or surface waters which could then be ingested by plants, animals or even human drinking water. The first step to optimizing any industry is to start with transparency. SoilFLO is disrupting the industry by enabling customers to track and store their soil movement digitally.
Once we have transparency we can begin optimizing the reuse of one of our most underrated non-renewable resources, soil.
Potential for International Expansion
One of the most impressive things about Kevin has been his ability to expand his business internationally. SoilFLO has recently been onboarded onto nationally recognized infrastructure projects in both Australia and UK. The team is excited on how they can continue the growth within these countries.
Kevin is extremely driven toward building a business that helps the environment, creates jobs and grows the Canadian economy. He looks forward to continuing to expand SoilFLO and empowering the modernization of the Earthworks industry.
