Dear Colleagues and Associates,
As we approach our 14th year in business, we would like to say a heartfelt thank-you to all of the suppliers, sub-trades, clients, and numerous others who have helped make Derksen Mechanical Services (DMS) Inc. one of the fastest growing Industrial Mechanical Contractors in western Canada.
The “Derksen” name has been synonymous with quality and value from Manitoba to British Columbia for over 50 years now, thanks to our sister company Derksen Plumbing and Heating Ltd.
As a fledgling start-up Industrial Company in 2001, it was important for DMS to associate itself with a long-established organization that was both known and trusted. Derksen Plumbing and Heating was very generous in allowing us to utilize the “Derksen” name, as it gave us immediate credibility within the marketplace.
Having said this, there are many times when having two Derksen companies, both performing mechanical work (albeit to different industry sectors) may have led to confusion for some. Often we receive contracts, invoices, tender requests etc. that were meant for each other.
Now that DMS is well known amongst its peers, and in order to remove future confusion, we are happy to announce that come September 1, 2014, Derksen Mechanical Services Inc. will become DMS Industrial Constructors Inc.
The name “Constructors” is certainly less restrictive than “Mechanical Services”, and will help define us as a company that has offered much more to our clients than just mechanical services. Rest assured that mechanical contracting (Piping, Millwrighting, Boilermaker work) will remain an important part of who we are and what we provide, however other services such as Prime and General Contracting, Electrical, Structural, Craning and Insulation Services, Procurement, Project Management, Mechanical and Structural Engineering, 3rd Party Instruction etc. will be represented under the umbrella of “Industrial Constructors”.
As this name is currently registered, you will start to see it utilized more frequently in the coming months, as we prepare for the September 1, 2014 legal name change date.
We appreciate your patience during this time of transition and look forward to our continued relationship with your organization.
Should you have any questions at all, please contact myself or any of our company representatives at your convenience.
Brad Mason, President
