This month marks the five year anniversary of Britespan Building Systems Inc. (Britespan). Britespan was started by Ben Hogervorst and his wife Jenny, in partnership with Rob Stute, in June 2010. Ben and Jenny had been the owners of Cover-All Building Systems of Ontario for 15 years, a dealership for Cover-All Building Systems Inc. (Cover-All), recognized as a top dealership year after year for their success. When Cover-All went into receivership in March 2010, Ben and Jenny decided to form Britespan. “We felt that loyalty and obligation to the customers that we had sold to for so many years, and to the other Cover-All customers who were now without dealership support,” says Ben Hogervorst, President of Britespan.
“Our goal when we started Britespan was to be an innovative company. We wanted to go above and beyond what other fabric building manufacturers were doing, both from a product line and quality standpoint. We accomplished this by listening to our customers and dealers, listening to their ideas and needs, and really letting that drive our innovation,” says Hogervorst.
After five years of hard work and dedication, Britespan continues to see rapid success and growth, both as a company and as a leading manufacturer and supplier of fabric buildings across North America. Today, Britespan is a team of industry experts, from our authorized dealers to our engineering, technical and manufacturing departments. With a growing dealership base of over 40 local dealerships across North America, and the largest product line in the fabric building industry, the future looks “brite” for Britespan.
To celebrate the success and innovative focus of the company, Britespan recently launched a corporate positioning video, will be launching a new corporate website, and have revitalized their corporate brand to strengthen their presence as a leader in the fabric building industry.
