REMEBERING NORM WALLACE
It is with sadness that we announce the loss of our founder, Norm Wallace, in October 2020. Norm incorporated Wallace Construction Specialties Ltd. in 1972 and established the company as a leader in the industry through his strong vision, innovation, enthusiasm, hard work, and loyalty to staff. He garnered a reputation as a passionate and tough person who fought for what he believed to be right. Norm was very involved in business and industry boards as noted under the “About Us” tab of our website. But he also quietly supported his community through numerous initiatives and he always had a soft spot for entrepreneurs, immigrants, and innovators and was often the first to step forward to offer a helping hand. Norm’s passion and zest for life were infectious and made him a great person and leader. We strive to follow and value these traits in both our work and our personal lives. Norm leaves a strong legacy and we are proud to carry the business on in his name.
