Rent for the premises will be $1,500 gross plus HST on a month-to-month basis for a maximum of one year after close.

Growth & expansion opportunities:

No limit to growth as there are many opportunities to respond to tenders. The key is to develop the workforce.


Management believes that the following parameters are key to success in the industry, and that the company is competitive on all of them: Price: always a consideration and the company is not necessarily the cheapest provider, but always considers itself to be competitive. Service Quality/Reliability: in any business, is always important. It is particularly important in non-tendered work, where purchase decisions are based more on relationships than on price. The company has developed an exceptional reputation for quality and reliability over 18 years, and has become the market leader as a result. Loyalty: The company has developed a number of strong relationships with clients over many years of service, resulting in long term clients with minimal turnover. Awareness: As stated above, the company has been in business for 18 years. Because of its strong brand awareness in the market, the company is likely invited to quote on almost any significant project in the region.
