They established their head office in Grande Prairie to concentrate their services in Northern and Central Alberta and British Columbia but with time, set up another branch office in Whitecourt to help alleviate costs for their clients. In 2016, a second branch office was also established in Dawson Creek to serve our clients better. As well as 2018 in Rimbey and Sylvan Lake.
