From rigs to bridges…
Starting out with a single welding truck and a big dream, John and Sally Leder launched a modest western Canadian steel erector business in 1972. They couldn’t have imagined the heights they would reach over the coming decades.
They quickly earned the trust to deliver bigger, higher-profile projects, rising to meet increasing challenges of scale and complexity. They made savvy acquisitions, growing their offering and their community across western Canada and the United States. They made smart, early investments in computer software, putting an emphasis on innovation that keeps the company on the leading edge of building technologies to this day.
Navigating the tumultuous ups and downs of the industry through the 1980s, they grew Supreme into the biggest privately held steel fabricator in Canada. But even as the company expanded, they maintained a family-first mentality, where each staff member and partner is treated with respect and care. They gave back to their communities.
Today, that care and experience is evident in transformational projects like the Rainier Tower in Seattle, the Port Mann Bridge in Vancouver and the Diavik diamond mine in the Northwest Territories, to name a few.
But despite its considerable past successes, cutting edge tools and even brighter future, Supreme still has the soul of a hard working prairie couple with a welding truck.
Because, as John likes to say: The knowledge of the past becomes the wisdom of the future.
