Thoughts and dreams became reality in 1999 when Bruce and Brent created and opened the doors of Wreaths Plus.
Bruce and Brent wear many hats in their daily lives. Bruce is the president of Wreaths Plus, a forestry engineer, has taught forestry at the Cegep for the past 25 years, he does wood lot management, and is the owner of Santa’s Plantation and B.J. Forestry products.
Brent born in Gaspé and now resides in Mississauga he is the Vice President of Wreaths Plus. Currently Brent is chief financial officer for Wilson Logistics and international transport company. For the past 16 years he has worked in financial management field and received his CMA in the mid nineties.
These men of goals have surrounded themselves with a team of employees who have the same visions and objectives as they do. A proud moment in their lives came when in September 2002 when Profit Magazine rated them as one of the fastest growing companies in Canada. This growth has not stopped from 50 + employees in 1999 to more than 180 today and their aim is even higher. Another 80-100 people are employed in surrounding communities to do contract work over and above what the plant can produce. Bruce and Brent together own over 2000 hectares of wood lots in the Gaspésie.
