Murals in Metal

Dawes

Located in Seaforth Ontario, this business is owned by Jim Dawe, and manufactures machine laser cut works or art. Jim and his staff, son Cory and son-in-law Jordon Skinner, can make any design. If you can think it, they can cut it. They have the ability to show the customer their design on a wall or building, before they actually make it. The plasma machine is CNC operated and staff use Corel Draw for artwork designing. With the help of Cory and Jordon, Jim has grown the company and has been commissioned by large companies to create murals for their buildings. Murals in Metal supply 45 stores around Ontario.

 

Green Leader Award

Envira North Systems Ltd.

Envira_north

Envira-North Systems Ltd. Manufactures the Altra-Fan with Whale Power Technology ranging in size from 8 to 24 ft. in diameter. This quiet ceiling fan is ideal for manufacturing facilities, distribution and warehousing facilities, airport hangars, recreation facilities and dairy barns, really any facility with a high ceiling. The product has gone from a 10 blade fan to a five blade fan making it more efficient because the tubercle technology has allowed the manufacturer to increase the pitch of the blades using less natural resources and making it run 75% quieter.

Timber’s Outfitters

Huron County’s Paddling and Outward Bound Specialists

63 Main Street South, Seaforth, Ontario (519) 600-2267 www.timbersoutfitters.com

 

The Management

Dwain and Sherri Forrest

 

The Story

 

As a Cub Scout, Dwain Forrest was introduced to canoeing—and it was love at first float.  Building a cedar strip with his Scout troop at age 14 further cemented that relationship.  Today with the capable assistance of wife, Sherri, Dwain owns and operates Timber’s Outfitters—supplier of everything needed for successful outward-bound trips.

 

Slide

From canoes and kayaks to tents and campstoves, Timber’s carries a complete line of equipment and supplies.  Whether you’re camping or paddling—or both—Dwain’s store has it all, including rental of canoes and kayaks.  And his major suppliers and manufacturers are quality Canadian companies.

 

Floating along a river or stream gets you up close and personal with flora and fauna—ducks, geese, muskrat, beaver and deer share space with you.  Foliage flourishes and flowers along a quiet waterway.  If you travel it often enough, you could see nesting waterfowl become families with fluffy babies trying the water for the first time.  And on that winter day when you’d like to try something different, at Timber’s you could rent or purchase snowshoes for a winter wonderland hike.

 

Maitland_river_brussels

Brussels beautiful millpond at Logan’s Mill, within the Maitland Valley Conservation area, is the location of special summer events staged by Timber’s Outfitters.  Their Water Days offer the chance to try kayaking in a secure and fun setting.  Dwain brings the kayaks and two safety boats—instruction is two on one, ensuring an “in dry” and “out dry” experience.  Wet clothes aren’t part of Water Days.  Check out Timber’s website for dates and times. www.timbersoutfitters.com or visit www.shopseaforth.ca Timber’s Outfitters is No. 214 on Directory/Map.
