The Southwest family of companies began in 1987 as Southwest Doors & Hardware Ltd. and we have been successfully servicing the commercial, industrial and institutional markets of the Southwest Ontario region for over 30 years.
In 2007, we were given the opportunity to purchase a commercial glass company which resided in the same plaza. We worked for a few years together across the parking lot but realised a move was in our near future. It has been a perfect fit and we have become invaluable partners in the construction industry. Our most recent sister company, Southwest Door Automatics Ltd, was opened in 2016 to service the ever growing accessible entrance needs in Kitchener, Guelph and Cambridge area. Together the Southwest group offers complete service to every opening.
A Family-Run Company
Southwest Doors started in 1987 in a small plaza in East London by Gilles and Charmaine Geoffroy. They quickly grew to a staff of 10. Over the next couple of decades they expanded unit by unit in the plaza, gathering clients by continuously exceeding expectations and always delivering what they promised. With their daughter Chantal and son-in-law Chris as part of the team, their legacy will continue and we are proud to remain a family-owned company.
Over 40 Employees Working for You
While we began life as a small company, we have since grown into a highly motivated, trained and passionate group of over 40 employees. Our entire staff will always strive to please our customers and work alongside our manufacturers to achieve the best construction results. We are the # 1 trusted partner for commercial openings in South Western Ontario and we will quickly become yours.
We Operate a 28,000 Square Foot Facility
Our current operations are based in London, operating in a state of the art custom built 28,000 square foot facility located next to the 401 highway. We are actively tendering and have a very busy walk-in trade with our order desk. We pride ourselves on creating a welcoming atmosphere for every potential client that walks through our door.
As proud members of the Door & Hardware Institute and the London & District Construction Association, we continually participate in many trade shows, events and training courses to keep our skill set current and wide-spread. We strongly believe that by keeping ourselves informed and trained in the latest technology, we are able to provide our customers with the best possible services.
