For Immediate Release

Castle Welcomes New First Nations Member Location

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

After another record year, Castle announced today their newest member location in Western Canada. The first new Castle location of 2016 can be found in Fisher River; a Cree Community located approximately 200 kilometres North of Winnipeg, Manitoba.  Castle Fisher River Building Supplies is now under construction and the project is lead by visionary Chief David Crate and his Council.

For the past three years, the Fisher River community has experienced tremendous growth and expansion and as such their need for a local building supply source continued to climb. When the decision was made to open a building centre in town, the decision was Castle Building Centres.

“This is an incredible opportunity for Fisher River. The community is flourishing and Castle offered us the flexibility and freedom we needed to meet the unique requirements of our growing community and surrounding area.” Chief David Crate, Cree First Nation

The new location is scheduled for completion in April 2016. Chief Crate and his Council are assembling a knowledgeable team to assist contractors and local consumers with their home improvement and building material needs.

“On the heels of our best year on record, the announcement of this new Castle member is a fantastic start to the new year. The Fisher River community is progressive and thriving and has incredible potential as they continue to experience economic development. Our business model is stronger than ever and continues to attract new members from all across Canada.”
Ken Jenkins, President, Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

Castle would like to welcome the Fisher River Building Supplies to the Castle Building Centres family.
