Kennedy Metals, Pleasant Valley, PEI
This company manufactures metal roofing, siding, and flashing. The business was opened by Scott’s father, William and his brother, Blair, in 2007. The company was incorporated in 2011 and a manufacturing plant was built in 2014. There are four staff members, along with the three owners.
“Three staff members work in the manufacturing plant, running computerized equipment, and one more will be added on this summer,” says Scott Kennedy. “All of our work is indoors, so it is a clean work setting with no heavy lifting.
“Our employment needs can be sporadic, however, we are always looking for good people.
“We are in growth mode right now. When we meet good people, we hire them as soon as we can.
“Julie started with us in October after we approached her. The company that is most successful is the one with the best people.”
