Member Spotlight... 

Congratulations to Brian Scheele, B-Safe Electric Ltd whose company was highlighted in the Spring issue of Dialogue.  With over 15 years of experience servicing customers in the GTA and surrounding areas, B-Safe's top priority is safety.  The company is specialized in electrical services for commercial, industrial and residential customers, is eco-friendly and is committed to promoting energy efficiency.  B-Safe is a family-owned business;  Brian's five children include two boys who are apprentices and another about to write his exam. Brian is proud that his boys are not only working in the trades but working together in the family business.  More recently, the company has moved into a larger office space, from 1,000 to a 3,000 square foot space, to accommodate their growing business and increased staff.
