Over the past 85 years, Levitt-Safety has worked to become the largest specialty supplier of safety equipment in Canada. We have 17 locations from coast to coast, and over 10,000 customers that depend on our products, services and training to get their workers home safe at the end of each day. It’s a great pleasure of ours to announce that we’re continuing to grow our Canadian safety support network to Northern Canada with a new branch in the Northwest Territories.
We have now officially opened up our 18th facility, located in beautiful Yellowknife, NWT. This location will allow us to provide local support, improve costs and delivery times, support safety programs and help improve the safety cultures for local, northern businesses.
On June 9th, we got our first chance to interact with the community by sponsoring the annual Yellowknife Bike Rodeo and hosting its first BBQ. Six of us cooked and handed out over 1600 free burgers and hot dogs to families and guests. It was a great opportunity for our team to meet members of the community and learn more about the diverse city. We look forward to continuing to grow our presence and promote the importance of workplace safety through our future ventures, (stay tuned to see what happened next, when we visiting the Kimberlite Career and Technical Centre).
We see Canada’s north as a strong and growing economy built up of many industries and are confident that opening this new branch will help support our mission to help Canadian workers home safely at the end of each day.
