To Whom It May Concern Re: 6228756 Manitoba Ltd. O/A "GOT MATS?" - The Brandon Chamber of Commerce Outstanding New Business Award Nominee
Subcan Ltd. is an excavating firm which started in 1987 with a single backhoe/loader and has grown to become a specialized pipeline maintenance company operating in Manitoba and Saskatchewan with almost 50 employees. After 27 years of growth I sold my company to my nephew in 2014.
In February of 2013 we entered into an agreement with "Got Mats?" to supply their product on one of our Manitoba jobsites with Enbridge Pipelines Inc. Prior to this time most rental rig mat products were being hauled into Manitoba from out of province at great expense and with much delay. Since the beginning of our affiliation "Got Mats?" has been our exclusive supplier of mat products.
I was completely surprised to find such a young company that performed like a veteran from the outset of our relationship with them. "Got Mats?" recognized an opportunity in the oil field and at great financial risk they have invested in a durable and consistent product to support the industry. "Got Mats?" is one of the most responsive and consistently professional suppliers that I have ever encountered. They are flexible and accommodating as our needs change and on occasion these changes occur on very short notice. They have exhibited incredible patience and a congeniality that is completely refreshing in an industry that is noted for exactly the opposite!
It has been a great pleasure for me to have ended my career in relationship with such an up and coming young firm. I expect the association between Subcan Ltd. and "Got Mats?" will continue well into the future.
I cannot emphasize enough how much I support "Got Mats?" as a most deserving candidate for the Brandon Chamber of Commerce Outstanding New Business Award!
