T&R Contracting is a locally owned, family run business with a long history in Powell River. Owners Raeann Hanson, Shaun Gloslee and Dan and Bonnie Robinson are proud of the company's tradition of great service.
The lead partners of the company are Shaun Gloslee and Dan Robinson, both of whom have long histories in business and related industries. Shaun and Dan have worked together on many projects over the past several years including their first joint business, Coast Hydro Excavating Ltd.
When the opportunity to buy T&R Contracting came up, the two knew they had found a business that would complement their existing operations.
Shaun grew up in Powell River and has run machines since he was 10 years old helping his dad. He worked for Gloslee Trucking Ltd on and off for 25 years in addition to working in the forest industry. In 2008 Shaun recognized an opportunity to start his own business, Shaun Gloslee Excavating Ltd.
Today, SGE is a strong, healthy business which employs 15 full-time workers in addition to part-time employees. SGE works on a wide range of projects from residential landscaping to industrial road building and contract blasting.
Throughout his career, Dan has focused on business. His first company, Rural Septic Services Ltd, has been in operation for 25-plus years, a genuine success. Dan brings those years of experience and skills to T&R Contracting. His key role is to manage operations on both the commercial and residential sides of the business.
Dan’s strong working relationships both within the company and with his customers mean he understands the company and all that it does. He manages and coordinates job specifics, personnel and fleet operations.
