Victoria Branch Announcement

October 6, 2017

To our valued Victoria Customers;

As per the communication sent out at the start of this week, earlier this year, both McGregor & Thompson Hardware Ltd, and Shanahan’s Limited Partnership were purchased by Speyside equity.

We are excited to announce that in Victoria we are moving to a consolidated branch operation and we expect to open as of March 1st 2018 (we will be a consolidating the commercial operations of both branches into a new facility at 3206 Jutland Road). This new facility and combined resources will enable us to better service our customers and execute on projects of all sizes.

All sales and transactions at the Jutland Road location will be through McGregor & Thompson Hardware Ltd., however if you prefer, Shanahan’s Surrey will also offer service to Vancouver Island.

As of November 1st, 2017, we will be closing the Shanahan’s Victoria operation on David Street and sub leasing the space. In the interim period before we move to Jutland Road, all Shanahan’s Victoria staff will work out of the McGregor & Thompson Hardware at 466 Bay Street.

All existing projects with Shanahan’s will continue to be managed by your Shanahan’s representatives. All new projects will be managed through McGregor & Thompson Hardware Ltd., Victoria.

McGregor & Shanahan’s thank you for your past support, and look forward to a future of growing together to serve you better.
Thank you,

Stuart Cuthbert

McGregor & Thompson and Shanahan’s Announcement

October 2, 2017

To our valued customers, employees and suppliers;

In the first 6 months of 2017 Speyside Equity purchased Shanahan’s LP and McGregor & Thompson Hardware Ltd. This purchase creates positive opportunities for two market leaders in Western Canada including our customers, employees and suppliers.

Shanahan’s is a leading distributor of frames, doors, hardware and specialties in BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. In addition to nine distribution locations, they are the only vertically integrated manufacturer in Western Canada with over 200,000 sq. ft. located in Calgary.

The McGregor Group of companies, also a leading distributor of commercial frames, doors, hardware and wood pre-hung doors, has seven distribution locations in BC, Alberta, and Washington State.

Both companies are under new ownership with an enhanced focus on growth and market leading customer service. We have renewed resources and strategic leadership to continue our customer focused sales and operations mandate. The combination of McGregor & Thompson and Shanahan’s represents a significant opportunity for our customers and valued suppliers to partner with a market leader in the commercial, residential, and institutional channel.

Shanahan’s and McGregor, while continuing to operate as separate brands, will leverage supplier relationships, share best practices and optimize efficiencies to provide an outstanding customer experience. You can expect continued improvement in all that we do, keeping our customers’ needs and expectations as a beacon to guide us through the transition.

Shanahan’s and McGregor thank you for your past support, and look forward to a future of growing together to serve you better.

President’s Excellence Award, SALES RECOGNITION 2015

On behalf of the owners and the executive staff of the McGregor Group I would like to officially recognize two individuals from our sales group that have achieved stellar results: in volume, margin contribution, business development and professionalism in everything that they do.

From our Seattle Branch, under the leadership of Al Laufenburger: Siva Sethuraman, supported by his sales coordinator, Tim Madden, generated the largest sales value for McGregor Group.

Siva joined MDH in 2010 as a project manager, and has a degree in Civil & Structural Engineering as well as Masters in Construction Management. With support from his team and sales manager DJ Hill, Siva set this year’s top performance mark in the USA. Siva lives in Seattle with his wife Mar.

Residing in Nanaimo, Todd Belton, with mentoring from Roger Levasseur and support from Dave Shelton and Stuart Cuthbert combined, established Canada’s top performance bar in 2015. Todd has been with McGregor for 12 years, and has continually upgraded his education, industry knowledge, and sales abilities over the course of his career.
Please join me in honouring these two individuals over the course of this year. Sales success is achieved through a combination of many factors; however, the personality traits of integrity, hard work, ambition, resourcefulness, drive, and the relentless pursuit of customer service are all common denominators exhibited by these two gentlemen.

On behalf of all of the owners and employees of the McGregor Group, we thank you for setting your goals high and achieving President’s Club status.
We are proud to have you as part of our team!

Mike Longhi
Senior Vice President
