Celebrating 50 years of Kenroc
On April 10, 2017, Kenroc marked being in business for 50 years.
Anniversaries are more than milestones. They are reasons to celebrate!
During 2017, Kenroc celebrated its customers and employees with prizes, events, scholarships and charitable donations.
WINNER OF THE 50th ANNIVERSARY CUSTOMER DRAW FOR A 1967 CHEVROLET CAMARO SS
To celebrate 50 years of business, Kenroc Building Materials proudly awarded one very lucky winner his own 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS.
The winner of the draw was Irvin Foster from Capital Drywall in Calgary.
In order to be eligible for the draw, a customer had to spend $5,000 with Kenroc to receive their first entry. Each additional $1,000 in purchases created another entry. There were 1,743 customers in the draw.
The 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS was on display at all Kenroc branches during 2017.
CUSTOMER AND EMPLOYEE EVENTS
Events were held during 2017 by Kenroc’s locations to celebrate with customers and employees and to recognize their importance to the company’s success now and in the future.
The events were an opportunity to enjoy one another’s company and to reflect on the work we have done together.
This year of celebration was wrapped up with an event held in Regina to mark where Kenroc was started.
To celebrate its 50 years of being in business, Kenroc wanted to acknowledge students who demonstrate a value held by employees of the company.
To be driven by our goals for superior performance.
Five academic scholarships valued at $1000 each are being awarded in 2017 to students pursuing a post-secondary education. These students are Kenroc employees or their immediate family members.
Supporting the communities in which Kenroc grows and prospers is a cherished value of the company.
This value is demonstrated each year by Kenroc through its commitment to donate one per cent of its profits to charitable organizations in the communities where it operates. Over the past 30 years, Kenroc has donated more than $1.5 million to numerous worthy causes.
In 2017, for its 50th anniversary year, Kenroc increased its commitment to charitable giving by $50,000.
Staff in each of its locations across Western Canada selected charitable organizations to receive a donation from Kenroc during its milestone year.
