It all started in 1952 with one truck in a one bay garage behind Vernon Whiteley's house in Chatham. Little did Vern know back then that with a handful of contractors and customers, he was creating the foundation for a company that would thrive and continue to grow over the next many decades. In 1972, Vern's son Tom took over the ownership, and grew the company exponentially. His success can be felt by the strength of the company that he passed on to the next generation.
In 1999, Tom's son Eric and daughter Sara returned to Chatham after successful careers as a naval officer (Eric) and geotechnical engineering (Sara), with the idea of taking the family business into the next generation. Together they have found operational balance between the challenges and roles needed to run a multifaceted trade organization.
Vern built our company based on integrity, respect, expertise and community engagement, values we share and live by to this day.
