WesternOne Inc. has announced that its modular building division Britco has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Lax Kw’alaams band to establish a modular building rental business.
The focus of this innovative partnership will be to lease and sell modular buildings within a territory that stretches from Prince Rupert to Terrace and north to Stewart, the company said in a news release.
“Britco has been investing in people in British Columbia for over 36 years and they are very clearly focused on generating meaningful, long‐term partnerships,” said Lax Kw’alaams mayor Garry Reece. An office will be established in Prince Rupert with a member of Lax Kw’alaams employed by Britco to develop business opportunities in the region. This will provide a long term career management opportunity in sales and marketing for the Lax Kw’alaams individual who will receive significant training and support from Britco.
“We are very excited about the potential of our partnership with Lax Kw’alaams and we are looking forward to building opportunities with the Lax Kw’alaams in this region,” said Britco president Mike Ridley
The memorandum of understanding was signed by Lax Kw’alaams mayor Garry Reece and Britco president Mike Ridley in Prince Rupert, B.C. in early May
