DON GRUNDY – President

Don began his career in construction with Arpi’s Industries Calgary, in 1970. From an entry level position in the shop to an indentured apprenticeship as a tin smith to the completion as Red Seal Journeyman and subsequent Superintendent status, Don proved loyalty and value by remaining with Arpi’s through it all.

In 2007, Don took yet another step up the ladder and closed on the deal to purchase the Edmonton operations of Arpi’s Industries. With two partners involved, Don became an owner and President/ Founder of Arpi’s North Inc. and has maintained that role ever since.
