PVC STRIP CURTAINS, TORONTO | CASE STUDY

A pop of colour!
Our customer's staff were cold when the large 12' wide by 12' high door was open. The solution was to install a curtain with overlapping strips on either side with an 18" offset to cover the yellow bollards as well.

If you're interested in having strip curtains installed, you have the custom option of ocean blue as seen here or orange.

Questions? Contact us today at 905-274-5850. We'd be happy to assist you!

RIVER OAKS RECREATION CENTRE | WILCOX VOLUNTEER, OAKVILLE

Oakville Hockey Development (OHD) Program "Skill Builder", Town of Oakville

At Wilcox, we've implemented a new volunteer program for our employees to get involved in the community. This employee, in particular, has gone above and beyond!

Technical Sales Manager, Tony Wong, has volunteered as a hockey instructor with the OHD for 10 years. Specifically, Tony coaches the multi-level skills acquisition program:
"Try out the sport or learn more about the game. Perfect for children entering or playing house league hockey. We'll provide three levels of drills and skills instruction and a 1:10 instructor ratio. Instructors emphasize personal achievement and participation! Full equipment including a neck guard and a mouth guard are mandatory. All players must also wear a CSA-approved hockey helmet and cage. This is an introductory level hockey course but some prior skating ability is required. Age: 6-12"
 
"He ensures that the students are taught proper skating and hockey technique in a fun and engaging environment. He always makes sure each student gets individual attendant to the skills that they are working on. He ensures that they are enjoying the program learning at their skill level and having fun when on the ice. We've had many repeat customers over the years due in large part to Tony's commitment to the students." Bob Pawliw, Recreation Coordinator

Why does he do it?
"To give back to the community and help the kids improve their skills. Not only hockey skills but life lessons with fundamentals of work ethic, dedication and commitment whilst having fun at the same time" 

If there are any associations that you would like Wilcox to assist with as a corporate sponsor, please contact us directly: marketing@wilcoxdoor.com

FITBIT WORKWEEK HUSTLE | WORKPLACE FITNESS

 

Welcome to the Wilcox FitBit Challenge!
New Year, New Goals. A common resolution is to be more active, eat healthier and overall, become more fit. What better way to do that than with a friendly office competition? We've divided everyone that has a FitBit (or similar device) into two teams. Both teams are a mixture of our Mississauga and Hamilton offices. 
 
Fitbit-Workplace-Fitness-Challenge | Fitbit, Mississauga, Hamilton | Wilcox Door
 
This competition starts on Monday at 12:01 AM, ending on Friday at 11:59PM. Each team has a leader that is responsible for posting the total number of steps by noon each day. This will allow both teams to know where they stand and see if they can out-do each other. The team leader will post final scores by Saturday and the winning team will be revealed next week! Stay tuned to see this competition unveil. Good luck to all participants & Happy Stepping!
 
Team leader Sara sent this video to her teammates to get the ball rolling!
 
"Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go... Keep Walking!!"  Jobanjeet Kaur


Update!
After Walk-A-Saurus Rex won the Fitbit Challenge, our team decided to continue with a very spirited battle of the sexes! Looks like the ladies - plus our General Manager, Mike - are taking the lead!
