          "Guildford & Sons - A Century of Service To Industry"

Guildfords began as a ship’s chandler in Halifax in 1906, specializing in supplies for the still new steam-driven trans-Atlantic freighters. Insulation for boilers and engines, valves, tools and equipment and lubrication supplies formed the main part of their business for a long time. In the 1950’s Guildfords began to expand developing manufacturing divisions that saw them become a Canadian leader in insulation products for industrial and commercial use. Now based in Dartmouth this local company has had a long and interesting history.

Guildford & Sons – A Century of Service’ will be presented by Greg Brown, the Business Development Manager for Guildfords.
