A Brief History

Commitment to its customers, high quality workmanship, innovative,
value-added ideas and an unreproachable standard of business practice
are the reasons the company steadily grew over the years into a respectable
enterprise known to the industry. R. J. West’s total commitment to quality,
timely and reliable customer service is unchanged from the time the company
was established almost a half a century ago.
R. J. West today not only serves the Canadian and U.S. Market where its
largest customer base is but exports its quality product to overseas markets.
