'building from blocks'
The solid foundation of Van-Del Contracting Ltd. has roots that reach further back from the 1974 initial opening of the company by Richard Stevanus.
He had watched his father and mother build their own house from scratch, including fashioning the concrete blocks to build strong exterior walls. Their hard work, persistence and determination left a lasting influence on the young boy.
This work ethic and knowledge that a strong foundation is required for proper growth were so deeply ingrained in Richard Stevanus that when he formed his own company, compromising on quality or service was simply not an option.
Today the company that began in a garage has grown into a successful and well-respected business with landmark buildings across Southwestern Ontario that stand as testament to the work ethic and principles that Richard Stevanus learned from his own parents. The family tradition has continued. Van-Del Contracting has been run by the second generation of family members, Bryan, Don and Tim Stevanus since 1997.
The brothers actually started working in the business from the age of 8, sweeping out job sites and cleaning their father’s trucks. With over 50 years of invaluable experience, Richard Stevanus still serves as a consultant.
Located in the small and friendly community of Bloomingdale, where Van-Del Contracting’s roots first took hold, the company operates out of a new 19,000 square foot facility and employs over 45 full-time staff.
While the size of the company has grown considerably over the years, the initial commitment to not compromise on quality or service remains firmly rooted in the company’s foundation.As a result, the majority of our jobs come from referrals or are repeat requests from satisfied customers.
Thank you for taking the time to read this introduction to our company and for considering us for your next project.
