Third Generation Grande Prairie Company Expands Operations

GP Daily Herald-Tribune, LSM adds plumbing to the mix, Sept 28/16

Read Grande Prairie's Daily Herald-Tribune article - "LSM adds plumbing to the mix," by Jocelyn Turner, September 28, 2016.

LSM Lee's Sheet Metal has taken the bold step of expanding services during an economic down-turn. Effective April 2016, LSM added Plumbing and Prime Mechanical Contracting to their growing list of products and services. Starting up in 1964 with residential forced-air heating, LSM branched out in 2007 to form the LSM Group of Companies offering Residential, Commercial and Industrial HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning), HVAC Service, as well as Manufacturing, and
Powder Coat Painting. Co-owner and LSM (2007) Ltd CEO, Gordon Provencher, attributes the latest decision, "as a necessary step to meet the growing demands of a loyal customer base. A good number of our customers have been
telling us that we should expand our product offerings in this direction, as they are closely related to what we now provide and they prefer to do more business with relationships such as LSM that they have grown to know and trust over time. Also, it is during slow times that you have the opportunity to reassess and build upon your strengths verses the busy times when resources are stretched keeping up with fast growing customer demands. For this reason, we think the time for expansion is now."

Touching Day of Mourning Ceremony

Step for Life Walk

Tanya Jacques, LSM's Safety Coordinator, attended the Day of Mourning ceremony yesterday at Safety City in Grande Prairie, AB. The ceremony was hosted by the Grande Prairie Regional Safety Committee and the Alberta Construction Safety Association in partnership with Safe Communities. Last year, 125 workers died from work related accidents; each of those workers leaves heartbroken loved ones. During the ceremony  Margaret Johansen shared some stories about her husband.  Margaret lost her husband, Andy Hodgins, three years ago in a workplace incident.  After she finished speaking, a moment of silence was observed. It was a very touching and thought provoking ceremony.

Please take a moment to remember the workers and to renew your commitment to creating a safe workplace. You CAN make a difference.
 
The GPRSC invites everyone to join Steps for Life, the fundraiser for Threads for Life which helps family members facing a workplace tragedy. This event is on May 7 at Muskoseepi Park. Registration begins at 10, the walk starts at 11. There is a BBQ after and activities for kids. For more information on this organization and event go to http://threadsoflife.ca .
