Construction contractor finds best service and price for aluminum plates

In 2014, Storm Construction will celebrate its 20th anniversary in business in Canada. Rafal Burza, owner of the company, has done projects in a variety of commercial and residential capacities. Lately his business has focused mostly on the commercial sector, more specifically in the freezers of popular quick serve restaurants. Burza and Storm Construction have been hired by Tim Horton’s, Canada’s largest fast food service with over 3,000 stores nationwide, to remodel and install commercial walk-in freezers across the country.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Since he became a certified freezer installer, Burza has been ordering lots of aluminum plates from Metal Supermarkets Etobicoke as part of the installation process calls for it. The plate helps to reinforce the structure for long-lasting results.

Burza details his freezer-related orders, “I order a lot of metal plate. I order as many plates as we need. … There is never a problem. I can order and get the plates right away. I like to pick it up at the store and talk to the people – I like to be in control. … I’ll buy it in Etobicoke and bring it with me (because) I like to have everything with me.”

Burza has bought metal all over Canada in the past, but no one compares to the price and service he gets from the Etobicoke store.  He explains, “It’s difficult to buy metal in Canada. The costs vary a lot and the service is not the same. I travel all over the country, and Metal Supermarkets Etobicoke is best – service, price, you name it. For instance, I’ve ordered from some of the steel mills, and they make you wait 2 weeks, plus they have high prices.”

Burza can attest. Taxes, B.S., Metal – some things are better when cut. And nobody cuts it like Metal Supermarkets.
