Aknor Construction was incorporated in November, 1978 by Jack Keyzer. Jack moved his family to Moonstone and started in construction. Jack set up a yard beside Smith’s garage on Hwy 12 with a small site trailer as an office and for his equipment. Aknor soon became known as the go-to company for all things sewer, water, site- development, demolition and excavating within the Orillia area.
Aknor was involved in some large jobs in the area including the break wall at the Orillia Waterfront and the excavation for Casino Rama and many jobs large and small in between. Aknor has worked for years alongside the large Aggregate companies in the area doing over-burden stripping, excavating and removal of material.
