President Ken Jenkins released this industry announcement today.

Castle Building Centres Group Ltd. is pleased to announce the newest independent member location to join the group in Western Canada. Castle welcomes Delcan Building Materials Ltd. located in the town of Fort MacLeod, in the southwest corner of Alberta.

“Castle continues to be the fastest growing buying group in the country and this new member location is an example of how our unique business model continues to attract new independents at a record rate. Independents looking for a buying group that is member focused with a proven history of delivering maximum value turn to Castle and Castle delivers without any risk or liability. We welcome Delcan Building Materials to the Castle family.”
Ken Jenkins; President

Delcan Building Materials is the newest venture for owner Patrick De Leeuw who has successfully operated Delpro 1138 Wall & Ceiling Paneling since 2007. Delcan Building Materials may be new to retail lumber, building materials and hardware but they are gearing up to focus on servicing the area’s contractor and renovation market.

“When we made the decision to expand our existing business into a retail hardware and building materials operation, Castle stood out as the buying group that would give us the freedom to operate our way and opened us up to an impressive selection of vendor partners and national brands.”
Patrick De Leeuw; Owner

The Delcan property resides on 2 acres of land in Fort MacLeod. Plans are well under way for a further expansion in the Spring of 2015 with the expansion of the showroom and warehouse space catering to the retail consumer as well as the contractor market.

“I was very pleased that Delcan Building Materials chose the Castle Building Centres brand to help them develop their new LBM and hardware business in Fort MacLeod. Patrick’s enthusiasm and entrepreneurial spirit partnered with his work ethic will surely result in tremendous success for Delcan Building Materials.”
Les Gillespie; Business Development Manager, BC & Southern AB
