The Garth Company was founded in Montreal, Quebec, by George Garth and his son, Charles, in 1828 during the Industrial Revolution. The founders quickly established the strong reputation of their company, and became Canada’s first manufacturer of gas street lighting for towns and cities throughout the province.
Under the leadership of Charles Garth, the company grew immensely, earning a reputation for the soundness of its plumbing, engineering and steam fitting services.
Garth was soon connected to some of the best-known building projects in Canada at the time, including the Parliamentary Buildings in Ottawa; the Chateau Frontenac and Price Brothers Building in Quebec; the T. Eaton Company store in Toronto; and the Bell Telephone Company’s head office, in addition to various gas and water works, distilleries, sugar refineries, and horticultural hot houses and vineries.
Today, nearly 200 years later, our reputation for being a reliable and knowledgeable partner remains the same. The bold spirit of innovation and high-caliber service that defines our past shows us the way forward.
At Garth, we have spent years building relationships within numerous industries that have come to rely on us for the work ethic and commitment we bring to every project. It has everything to do with a fundamental promise that drives our team at its very core: We deliver.
With a fleet of vehicles at the ready, our knowledgeable staff makes sure your product arrives on-site and on time, with all appropriate documentation, including Mill Test Reports (MTR) and Canadian Registration Numbers (CRN).
But we also deliver in ways that far exceed our ability to bring the right materials to the job site:
- We respect the opportunity to meaningfully contribute to the success of your project, large or small.
- We pledge to bring our best, every day, to understanding your needs and responding to them with smart, cost-effective solutions.
- And we are ready to help you overcome any challenges that stand in the way of you realizing your goals.
Our team understands the importance of your projects and we appreciate the urgency often required to keep things running smoothly and effectively. It’s how we’ve built longstanding relationships with companies from a variety of industries over the years: by striking the perfect balance of the expertise and service.
