Here is where we would like to keep you up-to-date on any changes and improvements we've made recently. Read on!
OUR LOCATION Early in December, we moved to the
Morinville Business Park, immediately opposite Target’s plant. This gives us a better
yard layout, and ample office space (we don’t have to sit on each others’ knees
to have a meeting). We have done some interior renovations, with more planned
when time permits. Meantime, if you are in the area, stop by and meet us, if
you can stand a little mess.
STAFFING Like most, we have found it difficult to
attract and retain reliable staff. We are always on the lookout for young guys,
who “get” the idea of starting work on time

appear to be practical benefits. Again, details can be found at: http://www.can-cell.com/insulation_products/wallbar/wallbar.cfm
OVERHEAD DOORS As you may have noticed, we have, over the
last year, switched to installation by our own crew. The intention here is
to control the scheduling. Ideally this
should reduce the number of customers with an otherwise finished building, who
are still waiting for overheads.
It may also be time to mention the
adjustment of limit switches for those of you with electric openers. If
have your electrician hook up the opener, then you pour a concrete floor
threshold, please ensure the limit switch is adjusted for the new floor
level. If not, your door may either fail to close completely, or
attempt to bury itself
in the floor, neither of which is particularly helpful, and can be
