A Builder's Paradise - Patene Building Supplies Ltd. Grand Opening
On April 26, 2012, Pickering welcomed its newest commercial neighbour, Patene Building Supply Ltd. The Grand Opening allowed Patene to show off its extensively renovated and expansive facility at 1920 Silicone Drive, Pickering (Clements Road north on Copperstone Drive to Silicone Drive). Patene is a 57 year old Canadian building supply company that started in Kitchener under the name of G&A Masonry. From its humble beginnings in 1955, Patene now has locations across Ontario and as far west as Winnipeg, Manitoba. Although head office is situated in Guelph, the new Pickering location is expected to be Patene’s model branch. “We deal primarily with roofing, flat roofing, insulation, drywall, landscape, gypsum, stone work, masonry block walls, supplies; everything from exterior to interior on homes except siding, windows and doors,” explains Tevor Foster, sales representative, “We are also the only supplier in Canada for real, cut stone; not fabricated.” Further, Patene is known for making, mixing or manufacturing a number of their products on site.
Marking the Grand Opening were Founder, Eugene George with his son Ian; Paul Calleri, Branch Manager of Pickering; Bill Grandy, Traffic Manager; Howard Storey, Yard Supervisor; and Sales Representatives Jamie Ephraim, Trevor Foster, Diane Hunt, Mike Mayer and Staff. A large number of Patene’s suppliers, contractors and customers dropped in to share in the celebrations. Deputy Mayor Doug Dickerson; Counsellor Peter Rodrigues; Lynn Winterstein, Manager - Marketing & Business Development; Catherine Hodge Coordinator - Economic Development; and Fiaz Jadoon, Economic Development Officer were on hand to welcome Patene to the City of Pickering and celebrate in the official ribbon cutting.
Patene Building Supplies Ltd. welcomes all commercial and residential contractors as well as the general public to visit their new location. Take your time and browse through the extensive displays of materials in Patene’s showroom. “When people think of Patene, it’s not just because of building supplies; we are a very friendly company,” says Foster as he describes Patene’s policy to deliver supplies directly basements as well as roof tops, “We have our own cranes to deliver roofing to the roof tops or we will carry your drywall order into your basement for you.” Patene Building Supply Ltd. is a classic Canadian company built on superior customer service and quality. Come on out and say hello to our newest neighbours!
