Building firm moves to Summerland

A home improvement firm from Penticton will relocate to Summerland in spring.

A home improvement firm from Penticton will relocate to Summerland in spring.

Stu Henning, one of the owners of Beaver Home Improvements, said the company will move to a property in the James Lake Industrial Area.

“We’re quite looking forward to being in Summerland,” he said. “It’s a good opportunity for Summerland and it’s a good opportunity for us as well.”

The building, formerly the home of Katana Boats, covers around 2,800 square metres.

The building when open will house Beaver Home Improvements as well as DekSmart and Century Aluminum, two other Penticton businesses.

Henning said Beaver Home Improvements will work with contractors to provide its services.

He said there is plenty of work remaining before the Beaver can relocate to Summerland.

“We’re in the infancy stage,” he said. “There’s quite a bit of clean-up at the site.”

Mayor Janice Perrino said the decision to relocate will benefit the community.

“We’ve finally got this building turned around,” she said on Thursday when she announced the purchase was finalized.
