VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, November 23, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — One year ago, in October 2019, Downs Construction (Downs) in Victoria, British Columbia, joined the Pro-Claim Group of Companies. Downs has been one of the largest full-service disaster restoration firms on Vancouver Island for over 40 years. When the idea occurred to partner with the Pro-Claim Group, it really was an easy decision.
Dave Neal, Downs General Manager, reflects on this historical year for the company. “It’s been a very smooth transition joining the Pro-Claim Group. In fact, we’ve been able to increase our capacity for large scale claims by leveraging our partners at Pro-Claim’s flagship firm, Platinum Pro-Claim Restoration (PPCR) in Vancouver.” says Neal, “The added capacity to take on these larger jobs has been exactly what this market needs. This has been a record breaking year for Downs.”
“Downs company values make them special, and really are in line with our own” says Tony Scott, Pro-Claim CEO, “Downs takes care of their people and have a strong culture of giving back to the community, which is how we see the future of business. The acquisition of Downs late last year was a very important step in the Pro-Claim Group expansion plan, which later included ProStar Cleaning and Restoration in Calgary, Alberta and McKnight Restoration in Canmore, Alberta in 2020. With these acquisitions for the Pro-Claim Group, we’ve been thrilled with the remote large loss divisions and our ability to service these projects across Canada. Ultimately, we would love to have a branch in each major center across the country.”
Giving back to the community didn’t slow down, even during the COVID-19 pandemic, the Victoria, Vancouver & Calgary locations, ran location-specific PPE and emergency supply donation drives. “There was a desperate need in the community for these supplies and we wanted to help” says Scott.
Downs will continue to operate under their well-established brand in Victoria and continue to build on their long standing relationships in that community.
