  • This is a business owned by my dad

  • Started in 2009

  • Since then has created a monopoly in the western field

  • Customers are extremely happy and appreciative of the outstanding service.

In the beginning

  • 2 vans with bucket lifts left for Edmonton

  • Started by driving around at night and looking at signs that either needed repair or replacement, taking a photo of the sign, writing up a free estimate for service and calling the sign owner the next day with an estimate and the willingness to repair it for much less than the competition.

Spreading the Word

  • Eventually Westcan’s outstanding service and prices confirmed contracts with major national companies for western Canada. (Starbucks Coffee Canada, McDonald’s Canada, Tim Horton’s, Wendy’s Canada, Future Shop, Shell Canada and more.)

  • Word of their “family like business” spread and got the attention of most major business’

Spreading the Word

  • Unconventional advertising is one of the key aspects in their success

  • By providing free estimates and arriving willing to do any little task the customer needed completed, Westcan kept a group of loyal customers. For example: if they are there to complete an install, and the customer has a problem with their plumbing, Westcan employees will do what ever they can to fix it.

Treat ‘em like Gold

  • Westcan provides the latest technology to all employees (iPhones, iPads, etc.)

  • Above average pay keeps employees happy and loyal

Anything Goes

  • Flexibility towards both employees and customers provides satisfaction with customers.
