What makes a successful renovation? Our trade partners are a key!

June 21, 2018

A big part of what makes a successful renovation for Amsted is the great trade partners we work with. That’s why we take time out every June to host a huge barbecue, give away a few fun prizes, and relax away from the job site for an afternoon.

This year’s trade partner barbecue was held June 6 at our headquarters and, thankfully, the rain held off.

More than 100 people stopped by, enjoyed burgers and hotdogs off the barbecue, helped out a good cause, and socialized.

Ottawa Fastener Supply graciously organized a demonstration of Milwaukee Tools that included competitions involving drills and saws. Everyone got into challenges such as seeing who could drill five screws into a block of wood the fastest to earn both bragging rights and a prize.

There were also plenty of door prizes, including tickets to the RedBlacks and a Milwaukee Jobsite Radio/Charger.

In keeping with our mission to give back, we also encouraged donations for the Kanata Food Cupboard, collecting $150 in cash and 300 lbs. of food!

As always, it’s important for us to show our appreciation for our trade partners, who contribute to our continued success. Here’s to another great year!
