Letter From the President

Why Mainland?

From our welders, to engineers, to top management, there are in fact three ‘whys’ which hold equal value to us:

1. Listening to Care
2. Quality from Safety
3. Living out our Values;

Allow me to expand on each of these with a thought or two;

Listening to Care

We understand that listening not only respects the speaker but is also the most efficient way to gain true insight into people’s needs. So when we dig into the details of our customers’ projects, we, through listening, discover the details that can take a mediocre project to a place of excellence. Likewise, when we engage thoughtfully in listening to our ever growing staff and technical teams we are equipped to meet the needs of our team and produce better work.

In today’s world of digital communications, slowing down to engage in dialogue and practicing “listening to care” is an investment in time well spent.

Quality from Safety

Like you, after a full day I want to go home, get engaged in things other than work and get a good night’s rest. In this I am not alone and so I ensure first and foremost that every Mainland employee gets home as well.

With our in house safety management program “Fab-Safe” in place, we are able to focus on producing quality fabrication and heavy industrial products. When the site, facilities and work processes are safe and in good standing, Mainland’s team is ready to go to work. Our commitment to this “safety first and always” culture has ensured top industry sector marks in our COR audits both in house and in field. With careful oversight given to the health and safety of Mainland’s team, our attention can then have a single-mindedness to your project’s overall success.

Living out our Values

There is a lot of talk these days about “values”. Talk is cheap unless I can consistently demonstrate what my brother and I stand for and what you can expect from us in life as well as in business.

You see, Dave and I grew up in this business and now our dad is in the process of transferring ownership and leadership to us. When he started this business back in 1971, dad did it to care for his family, focusing on listening to customers, showing respect to all, delivering quality workmanship and living a life of integrity. Our primary goal is to carry on that tradition. When we take the time to carefully listen to you, making extra efforts to deliver top-notch products and services, and focus on the safety of those who work with us, we are showing you everything you need to know about Mainland.
