Now celebrating its 40th anniversary, On Side Restoration continues to grow across the country under the leadership of founder and President Craig Hogarth.
“Our humble beginnings have really come a long way! On Side became incorporated in 1979 and we’ve not looked back since.” Craig Hogarth, President and CEO continued, “Sure there have been many challenges along the way, like all businesses. But through it all, On Side continues to come out on top. A huge part of our success is due to our dedicated team and the hard work they put in, day in and night out.”
The 24/7, 365 emergency property restoration business is a tough and highly cyclical business. Tech innovations and the implementation of lean management systems continue to help On Side gain work efficiencies and drive costs down. The company now more than ever before, works very closely with their business to business clients to help slim down lost time situations and cut out possible duplications that would in the end correlate to increased charges or delays for the insured.
Amandio Contreiras, Chief Operating Officer stated, “Over the past six or seven years, all of us in the construction restoration sector have experienced the buildup of intense competitive pressure and increased customer demands. Tighter budgets, higher expectations and more ways of being measured have all been introduced and evolved over time. Now at our 40 year mark it’s incredible to see how far the company and industry has come.”
On Side continues its aggressive expansion plans across Ontario and Quebec, with their most recent acquisitions in Windsor, Ontario and Eastern Montréal. News releases to announce these locations are set to launch soon!
