Mover's Equipment & Supplies Ltd. started life in February, 1990. We became the exclusive distributor and sales & marketing arm for a major Canadian Furniture Pad Manufacturer established in 1946. They still make all our quilted products today. Mover's also began distributing the most popular brand names in van & warehouse equipment in the industry and started developing other new products to service our customers' needs.
Our first location was 2,500 square feet in an older building. We grew quickly and moved to new premises of 5,400 square feet within two years. In November, 1994 we moved again to a 15,000 square foot facility to accommodate our continued growth. We also needed space for our new service of providing warehouse and distribution services for the largest mover carton supplier in North America. At the same time, we also became more involved with transport air-ride logistic systems and blanket wrap services.
Business is a family affair at Mover's. Daughter Tracy first joined the company as a book keeper and order desk trainee in 1990 and has grown with the company. Wife Chris joined in 1994 bringing valuable experience in the moving industry as an administrator and moving household estimator. Starting with just two people, Mover's has grown to employ nine people. Stephen Stockill joined us in 1996 as customer service manager to make sure customer orders flow smoothly and on a timely basis. Steve as of 2001 is enjoying a very successful career as our outside sales representative along with his operational duties. In the fall of 1998 Cathy Haggarty joined us as customer service and inventory manager, with her computer skills she has become a valuable asset to out management team.
In January of 1992, we began manufacturing platform dollies and piano skid boards. The quality and durability of our dollies and piano skid boards are the reasons for the successful growth of this segment of our business.
Mover's has never compromised on quality or service. We don't ship from back order even picking up at our suppliers early in the morning or late at night to make sure our customers have what they need when they need it. Our standard of complete reliability backed by our guarantee of customer satisfaction remains our commitment and explains our growth.
We appreciate the trust and confidence our customers have shown us. It's really thanks to you that we have grown. Our goal is to continue to lead the moving and transportation industries in the provision and sourcing of new and functional products and to provide the best service in the industry.
