Our Story

Solid’s initial operations in Ontario consisted of six people and a handful of trades with a vision.  Success focused, goal oriented, and intentionally unconventional, we rapidly made a name for ourselves in the industry.  As the demand for our services grew, we hired individuals that shared our vision.  Immediately, each person took ownership for his or her role in the company, and responsibility for the success of every project. Within a year our office grew to a staff of 20, and further expanded to 36 employees in year two.  Nine years in, we have developed a strong presence in seven provinces, without compromising our people-first mentality. Our team reflects on and celebrates the efforts that have brought Solid to this point. Our unrelenting desire to be better than the day before continues to be at the core of everything we do.
