Not to my knowledge.

I believe at least two are out of the Country as all this

Several of the OK Builders employees immediately got snapped up by other building supply companies in both Kelowna and Penticton.
Experienced contract sales people are hard to come by. :up:
Two essential strategies for success.

1) Never reveal all you know
2)

It's pretty messy on Gaston.. Ave. KRM.. I don't recall seeing it that messy in front of OK builders site.

And several of us on the forum , lived or worked on the street where the mess is, so we would know..[/quote]

Yeup.. All those years I worked in that paint shop on the corner of Gaston and St. Paul, the road was a mess . had nothing to do with the house I DIDN'T build..

I rented Greg Schnieders loft apt. above his store... Great place !
I payed attention in High school....But not to what they were trying to teach me..

Only on Castanet forums does a decades old family business that has over those years employed hundreds and played a significant part in the literal growth of this valley get nothing more than snide innuendo regarding family finances and complaints about the apparent so-called mess they’ve made of a portion of a street in an industrial area. To the Busch family, thank you, for all you’ve done as significant contributing members of this community.

Yup typical Kelowna! Thank you OK Builders for your contributions to this community over the last 65 years. I would rather see the cement business and its messy street stay instead of a 20 storey "luxury" building that will replace it.

I prefer a new tower or residential place there. It's already too late to save the low rise character of that area. Once the first One Water project was approved we said goodbye to views of the clear skies from that side of Downtown. More density downtown would at least reduce traffic.

Yup, nothing like the sound of a straight piped CAT on it's
engine brake reverberating off glass, concrete, and steel.

Ahem... :D

Now thats a melody of sweet sound right there!! The industrial area north of Clement has been and will continue to be a pretty major supplier to the building up of that area. A lot of the items needed to build the numerous skyscrapers under construction or planned as well as all the high density buildings that will go up along Clement. Its so handy to have some of the supplies needed right next to your job. I spent many years making that mess on Gaston. Fed the family and helped pay taxes for yrs. :up: :up:

Zach, Step-and-a-half Dave - two of not only the best driver’s they had, but downright good people to boot.
