Our Beginnings

101 Industries was founded in 1968 by Willie Meier as 101 Sheetmetal, Plumbing and Roofing Ltd. The name originated as a representation of the fact that 1968 marked 101 years after confederation.


Since 1968, we have grown to become one of the largest contractors in northwest British Columbia. The growth from a small residential heating and plumbing contractor in 1968 to what 101 Industries is today was accomplished by recognizing our customers’ needs. As we saw opportunities for diversification and improvement, we made the investments in our business required to allow us to grow successfully.

Our Philosophy

Equally important to recognizing and reaching for new markets is the company’s philosophy to not give up a market in order to enter another. During our years of greatest growth, we have been able to not only maintain our existing markets, but we have continued to be the leaders in these fields. Even today, as 101 Industries is now an industrial specialist, we are still the premier residential and commercial service and installation contractor in the area – the same place we started in 1968.


Our name was changed in 1995 to 101 Industries It was decided that the highly descriptive original name of 101 Sheetmetal, Plumbing, and Roofing Ltd. did not adequately serve our business.


During the 1990’s, management and ownership of 101 Industries progressively shifted to include the company officers listed below:
