Castle Growth Continues

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group continues to grow across Canada. Western Canada added two new member locations this past summer including the addition of Interlake Glass in Arborg, Manitoba and VONR Hardware in High Prairie, Alberta.

“The continued growth of Castle is no coincidence. It is a direct result of the Castle business model and the message that new and existing Castle members are sending to the industry. Independents looking for a secure and transparent buying group with a proven hardware solution, and the freedom to run their business their way, should look no further.” Ken Jenkins, President

Interlake Glass, Arborg, MB

Interlake Glass located North of Winnipeg is a new Castle Specialty store location specializing in windows, doors and glass as well as additional products such as custom cladding, roofing and mouldings. The retail store will service contractors and consumers from the surrounding trade area and owner, Chris Eyolfson is looking forward to this new venture. Chris purchased the existing retail store and warehouse back in 2012 and now plans to add an additional 2000 sq. ft. of retail and 1000 sq.ft. warehouse space as his business grows with the help of Castle. Chris joined the Castle group because he knew it was time to expand his product offering to better serve the people of Arborg and surrounding area.

“Castle gives me the freedom to sell the products that make sense for my business while still enjoying the buying power of their supplier network.” Chris Eyolfson, Owner, Interlake Glass

VONR Hardware, High Prairie, AB

VONR Hardware is located Northwest of Edmonton, AB in the industrial town of High Prairie. Trever Sekulich and Debra Wales have been owner operators for over 11 years, specializing in a full assortment of hardware products.
