  • Commitment to supporting the community

“Focus on quality & success will follow.”
Donald T. MacAngus, Founder

Our founder Donald T. MacAngus honed his skills as a finishing carpenter in the old country, learning from the masters that quality speaks volumes about the character of the man. In 1950, as a new immigrant to Canada, Donald quickly gained a reputation as one of the best craftsmen in Winnipeg, dedicating himself to providing excellence in carpentry for a growing clientele. He began taking on demanding restoration work for insurance companies, always delivering on his promise of quality, while treating his clients as he would like to be treated: with respect.

Today, we continue to honour his legacy and follow the values he left for us with admiration and pride.
