In the Beginning
Casey’s Welding Service was established in 1986, by its namesake Casey Kuyvenhoven, and his two partners.
Within the first 3 months of operation, John Whitney, (current owner) began working for Casey as a versatile individual responsible for the majority of the busy shop's installations at customers facilities.
Through countless interactions with local company Owners, Managers and Employees, the Casey’s Welding reputation and demand for the shop’s services grew at a significant pace.
The little shop of 5 people was inhabiting the small corner of the two partners' machine shop, but it quickly became apparent that a larger facility would be required.
Within 2 years the business was relocated to its own 7000 sq. ft. facility on Ewart Ave. in Cainsville, just outside of Brantford, where it continued to enjoy successful growth.
By 2005 Casey had been attempting to remove himself from the daily working of the business, as was his original plan, almost 20 years earlier.
An offer was tabled by John to take over the business with little required involvement by Casey, and negotiations began.
A mutually beneficial deal was struck and John Whitney became the new owner of the well established business, in April of 2005, with no intension of changing the reputable and recognizable name.
Continued growth and success of the once small shop, required a much larger facility to handle the ever increasing demands and variety of work, steadily being taken on.
In 2010 a property was purchased within Brantford with an existing 17 000 sq. ft. building on the almost 3 acre lot.
Before relocating again, an addition measuring 6000sq.ft. with a 30’ ceiling and a 10 ton crane was added to the rear of the new building along with numerous electrical upgrades for the new intended purpose of the recently acquired facility.
In 2011 the shop at 27 Woodyatt Drive in Brantford was ready for occupancy and for Casey’s staff to make use of their vastly improved work environment.
Provisions have been made for even more expansion as workload demands.
