GeoStudios would like to thank it’s sponsors. Especially Challenger Building Supplies who stepped up to help by donating lumber supplies towards the construction for the Microhome Competition in Calgary. Challenger opened in Lethbridge’s new industrial park by Vince Toth in 1975. It included a temporary office on six acres of land, one truck and one forklift.
With the growth in all sectors of the city, Challenger’s reputation as an industry leader also grew. Challenger joined forces with TimBrMart, the largest buying group in Canada in 1981. Today, Challenger Building Supplies Ltd. employs upwards of 16 full-time employees and stands as the city’s only full-line dealer offering a complete package of on-site materials, a 13,000 sq. ft. retail area and a 30,000 sq. ft. warehouse.
The guys at Challenger are knowledgeable and helpful. In my experience, their prices have been consistently lower than their competitors on many lumber products. So not only do I feel good about supporting a locally owned business I can do so knowing I’m saving $. So a wave of appreciation to all the staff and especially Shaun, Hans and Wade. Thanks guys!
