First there was the man, then there was the business and then came the right car for both of them. Dale Welch has a long term relationship with constructions and restoring houses. But recently, he has bought a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter to make his work easier. “Me and my Sprinter have a very good relationship”, he says laughing, as if talkig about a member of his family.
In Rideau Lakes, Portland, a plasterer, his son and their Sprinter are braving the windy snowy roads of Canada in long journeys to get the job done.
To make a long story short, Dale Welch and his son are taking the tradition forward. Dale’s father was the first plasterer in the family. He started the business in 1978. Then Dale came by his side. And then his son Josh joined in. To make their daily routine more exciting and much easier, they got a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter.
“If you don’t do the job right, then don’t do it at all”, was Welch senior’s advice. This sentence shaped Dale Welch’s childhood and later on, it became the motto of his own company, Welch’s Drywall.
The father, the son and the Sprinter value quality and they value safety. The space is also a very significant issue, as they have to carry around massive materials. Dale is 1,88m, his son is 1,95m. So the interior height of the Sprinter is something they very much appreciate. “When you open the doors, you don’t have to bend over. You can just walk right into it, as you walk into a house.”, says Dale Welch.
Customers particularly treasure the high quality provided by the father-son-Sprinter team. That is why the company not only enjoys an excellent reputation in its hometown of Portland, but throughout the entire Ontario Province. So it is no wonder that Dale trusts the Benz as much as he trusts his family co-worker: “I can’t think of anything bad to say about the Sprinter. It is all about quality, pride and customer satisfaction”, he says as he puts the moisty mix all over the walls. Watch the whole story in the following video:
