Trailer Wizards turns 50 this year and is celebrating with customer appreciation events across the country.
Aside from the celebration, the Ontario-based company is reaching out to the communities that have supported their growth for half a century.
The company started with a single Can-Car trailer purchased in British Columbia on April 30, 1963 and has grown to include more than 300 employees, 16 Total Customer Care Centres and 20,000-plus trailers. It has become one of Canada’s largest and only one-stop-trailer-shop, coast to coast.
“We wouldn’t have been able to do it without the hard work of our employees and the support of our customers,” Doug Vanderspek, President of Trailer Wizards.
Trailer Wizards recently partnered with Food Banks Canada and as an official sponsor of Hunger Awareness Week, which kicks off next week and committed to donate $25,000 to support national programs. Trailer Wizards’ branches will also be organizing their own food drives to support local food banks during their 50th anniversary customer appreciation events with the hopes of raising an additional $25,000 of food and money for a total of $50,000.
Food Banks Canada is the national charitable organization representing the food bank community across Canada.
