Castle Announces New Quebec Location

News Release January 11, 2018

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

Castle announced today that a new member has joined the group in the province of Quebec. Murexpair Inc. is located in the city of Sherbrooke, Quebec and has been serving the local community for 17 years.

Owner, Jonathan Sirois, had a clear plan for Murexpair; to offer exceptional products, sales and service in the categories of roofing and siding to contractors and local consumers. When he and his current partner Bruno Langlois began to consider a buying group, they were looking for an opportunity to grow their business by having access to additional products in their categories, but didn’t want to lose their independence or compromise the core of their business.

“Castle was the right fit for us because we wanted to experience growth and reach our business goals, without losing sight of our original mission or the ability to run our business our way.” - Bruno Langlois, Murexpair Inc., Partner and General Manager

As part of the Castle group, the specialty store will offer a wider range of steel roofing, siding, decking products and commercial designer steel siding to their valued customer base, consisting of local residential and commercial contractors and consumers.

“Castle is the future of the Independent because we don’t expect our members to fit into a specific business model that doesn’t match their needs. Our members continue to operate in the manner that suits their business, and we encourage their independence, and enable them with buying power, and the support of a group gives them the tools they need for continued success.” - Ken Jenkins, Castle President

Castle would like to welcome Murexpair Inc. to the family.

Castle Kicks Off 2018 with a New Member in Western Canada

News Release January 8, 2018

Mississauga, ON - Castle Building Centres Group Ltd.

Fresh off the heels of another industry leading year, Castle Building Centres Group is heading into 2018 with a new member location in Western Canada. Castle announced today that Timber Spirit Supply in Spiritwood, Saskatchewan is the newest independent dealer to join Canada’s fastest growing buying group.

The town of Spiritwood is located in central Saskatchewan, about 125 km west of Prince Albert. Entrepreneur, Matt St. Onge founded the business just a few years ago with the goal of building trust with the local community as his guiding principle. Matt and his team of industry professionals continue to follow this creed and strive to deliver customized solutions to local contractors and consumers in the area.

Our team is dedicated to accommodating our customers’ every need and ensuring the best possible fit and solution. We needed the same “custom fit” for our growing business and Castle was the only buying group that could offer this kind of flexibility. The business model allows us to maintain our independence and continue serving our market with the products that work. We know this will make us more profitable and allow us to grow our business at our own pace.” - Matt St. Onge, Owner

Timber Spirit Supply is a full-service lumber, building material and hardware destination and the local community of contractors, home builders and consumers, have come to rely on the great solutions-based service. The team is looking forward to an improved product assortment and a much more comprehensive buying program. A grand opening celebration as Castle Building Centres is planned for the Spring, once the store has gone through a complete rebranding.

Castle is very pleased to start 2018 with a new member announcement. Timber Spirit is a great example of a successful independent entrepreneur that is taking their future success into their own hands. It’s a fact, every Independent retailer who has joined Castle from a competing banner has become more profitable. It’s that simple. We welcome Timber Spirit to the Castle family.” - Ken Jenkins, Castle President
