IN MEMORY OF GEORGE
STANLEY WATERMAN

G

eorge Waterman was President of the BSDA (now BSIA) from
1970-1971 and was a long-time supporter of the Association.
George was born July 29, 1918 in Winnipeg, Manitoba and
passed away May 24, 2017 in Vancouver, British Columbia. He is survived
by his two daughters, Linda and Georgia; two grandchildren Meaghan and
Duncan; and three great-grandchildren Brianna, Claire and James. George
and his wife Marguerite owned and operated Waterman's Building Supply
in Burnaby. During those busy years they would spend the weekends at their
cottage in Birch Bay. After they sold their business, George and Marguerite
enjoyed many trips to faraway places and winters in Palm Springs.

T

ASK TOOLS has developed a 12" Reciprocating
Saw Blade for Rigid Insulation to provide contractors with a superior alternative for cutting
and shaping rigid insulation quickly and easily. Terry
Hamer, Product Manager at Task Tools said, "Until
now, professionals have had little to choose from,
using anything from bread knives to chain saws to
expensive hot wire tools. Contractors will find this
new blade offers superior strength, accuracy, speed
and flexibility."
Precision crafted in Switzerland using premium quality, high
carbon steel, this blade offers both strength and flexibility. The
blade features a sharp plunge tip and a wavy knife-edge for clean
fast cuts and angular precision. The plunge-cutting ability and
ease-of-use make quick work of contour cutting for pipes, windows, doors, junction boxes, and vent outlets. Unlike hot wire
tools, this blade can be used in any weather and is environmentally
friendly, causing less material waste and reducing pollution caused
by other methods such as chainsaws.

SUCCESS OF DOUBLETREE ACQUISITION

I

just wanted to announce that the acquisition of Doubletree was a success and we have been the new owners
now since May 1st, very exciting times. Our new ownership group consists of myself, Jeff Girard, Mark Kenny,
Shawn Kenny, and John Starrett, each with an equal share of the business. I'd also like to announce that as
of today we have hired Rob Thom, formerly of Taiga/McIlveen. Rob will be our Outside Customer Service
Rep traveling the areas of Powell River to Prince George, we're most excited have Rob join team Doubletree.
We are extremely grateful to Neal Reynolds, Keith Reynolds, Doug Reynolds and Kevin Mercier for making Neal Signing, behind - Keith, Kevin,
and Doug from left to right.
Doubletree the business it is today and giving us the opportunity to carry on with their tradition of being well
respected within the Lumber Wholesale Industry.
Looking forward to continuing the relationship Doubletree has shared with the BSIA for the past many years.
