Castle Celebrates 55 Years of Success

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

Castle Building Centres Group Ltd. hosted an open house this past week, in Mississauga, to celebrate the buying group’s 55th Anniversary.  The ceremony was held inside the light filled and beautifully decorated “Atrium”, at the corporate head office, which served as the perfect backdrop to commemorate the incredible milestone.  The event welcomed guests from across Canada and included Castle Board of Directors, Castle members, vendor partners, as well as Castle employees, both past and present.

The catered affair included gourmet food stations, a live jazz duo, remarkable giveaways and concluded with a special 55th anniversary presentation. Welcoming close to 200 gathered guests, Castle Vice President of National Marketing, James Jones, kicked off the official ceremony followed by warm remarks from Castle Chairman, Keith Richardson, of Keith’s Building supplies in New Brunswick.

As part of the 55th Anniversary presentation, Ken Jenkins, Castle President, unveiled that a commemorative donation of $5,500 would be made to the Hospital For Sick Children Foundation (SickKids) on behalf of Castle Building Centres Group Ltd. Currently on the “Wall of Donors” Castle has been committed to contributing to the cause through their annual vendor appreciation golf tournament for the past 8 years.

In his closing remarks, Ken thanked those in attendance for their contribution to Castle’s success and attributed much of this success to strong partnerships and good people. His take home message to the group was a reminder that “your people are your brand" and to surround yourself with those who take pride in seeing others succeed.

He ended the night with a heartfelt message on the importance of celebrating the memorable milestone with those who have supported and been a part of Castle’s success.
