Because doing the right thing matters — employees of Integrity Group of Companies now have the option to become owners of Western Canada’s fastest growing Lumber Supply and Post Frame Building Company.
Integrity recently announced its new Employee Stock Ownership Plan or “ESOP”. “We are here because of the hard work and dedication of our staff and the quality of our leadership team,” says Jerry Myer-CEO. “Now, we are making the transition to an entire company of owners. By continuing to focus on our mission: Exemplifying “Integrity” throughout the sales experience, building construction, procurement of materials and service calls; we build lasting relationships with our customers across Western Canada.”
Since its inception in 2008, Integrity has experienced rapid expansion, and continues to grow its full time staff. The offering of the ESOP is keeping with Myer’s legacy as a fierce entrepreneur and that of a proudly Canadian owned and family-run operation. The employees will become co-owners and an even greater part of the Integrity family, with shared responsibility for the company’s future and continued growth as it expands.
The entrepreneurial spirit that shapes what Integrity has become today is not a product of chance, but a result of a management style inspired by Myer’s leadership. His leadership fosters a work environment where innovation is encouraged and rewarded. Being employee-owned means that Integrity will continue its commitment to being the industry leader with a focus on innovation, service, and quality. Integrity plans to reinvest in the business, making one of the best run companies in Canada even better.
Customer feedback is vital to the success of a company and Integrity Post Structures is no exception. For years, we’ve solicited customer feedback after every completed building project in the form of a survey. We ask for feedback on the sales consultant, construction crew, the product, and overall satisfaction. We strongly encourage our customers to write their personal thoughts on the process, whether it be about the satisfaction they experienced or the items they would like to see improvement on.

One of the most critical things to remember when seeking a price for an Integrity building is that the most reliable source throughout the design process will always be your local salesman. The experienced sales team at Integrity are equipped with the knowledge to explain to a customer what a building will cost and why it will cost what it costs. They serve as the primary point of contact throughout the entire construction process – from the first customer inquiry until the moment the customer is handed the keys to their completed building.

If you’re going to build an agricultural building, you’d better do it right. It takes a durable structure to withstand the forces of mother nature, gravity, animals and more. We realize how enticing it can be to always choose the cheapest building option. You see cheaper materials or services that seem equal to their more expensive alternatives, so you choose the cheaper option. A building’s a building after all, right?
Absolutely not. That’s like saying “a car’s a car,” but everyone knows a 1990 beater is definitely not equivalent to a brand-new Mercedes. There are a lot of details that go into a building, and those details – no matter how small – can make or break its durability. Continue Reading »
