On Side Restoration Services Ltd. is pleased to announce that as of March this year Colin Harwood has been appointed Branch Manager for their Kitchener/Waterloo location. Jay Kielt, Ontario Regional Director shared that “Over the past several years Colin has been a leader and huge contributor to the growth of On Side within the Kitchener/Waterloo marketplace. We’re excited that he’s now formally moved into this strategic role, overseeing the management of our people and projects in our new, larger location.” Mr. Harwood’s 15 year emergency restoration experience spans large loss, residential, multi-residential, commercial and intuitional work. He holds his WRT, MBL and FRST certifications. “I’ve worked with On Side for over 5 years as a branch leader and project manager. We’ve seen challenging times when we’ve experienced smaller work volumes to now when it seems that we’re almost bursting at the seams with projects and new opportunities. We’re enjoying working out of our new space, just across the street from our old location, and also seeing our team’s diligent hard work and relationship building pay off,” said Colin Harwood, Branch Manager Kitchener/Waterloo. On Side’s new full service Kitchener/Waterloo Branch is located at Unit D, Washburn Drive, Kitchener, ON with 7,700 square feet ­­­to handle all residential and commercial emergency property restoration challenges.
