The "Modern" fleet
At its peak in 1989 the company employed over 250 people in the field and were involved in the construction of many of Toronto's most iconic buildings.
Today the company has moved away from new construction and focuses on repipe, service and maintenance. We are proud that we are often selected to make repairs, renovations and improvements in the buildings that we built.
Joe and George first met in less happy circumstances. Both were born in the Czechoslovakia and were held as Jewish prisoners in the Nazi concentration camp called Terezin. Both were forced to use the trade as a way to survive. Split up during the war, the two met again in a plumbing supply shop in Toronto and took up business together shortly after.
