oldbuilding.jpgIn 1956, Ted Gaston Sr, opened a small sheet metal shop which he named Etmeco Ltd. At that time the company was involved in roofing and sheet metal fabrication, consisting of a 2000 square foot shop, one brake, one shear, two punch presses, two welding machines and four employees. The business took on a new direction with the death of Ted Gaston Sr in 1961. Construction in Toronto was starting to boom and Etmeco Ltd followed the trends. ETMECO expanded the shop, bought heavier equipment to increase our capacity and hired more employees to increase our speed of service. Mrs Gaston , with the help of the plant manager and salesman, kept the business on a sure footing until 1978. That's when Ted Gaston Jr. took over the responsibility of running ETMECO. Ted had spent the previous 5 years working for Drummond McCall, paying dues in various departments and working his way up to Inside Sales Supervisor. Ted's knowledge of ferrous and non-ferrous metals, various grades of alloys, along with sales training and experience, plus, adding the best integral workings of a nationwide company kept building on ETMECO’s reputation for quality, service and quick turnaround time.
