Strategic Merger

We are excited to announce that, effective April 9, 2021, Giffin Canada has created a strategic merger with Smith and Long.

With 160+ combined years in business, our reputations are strong and durable – and this partnership creates an even stronger multi-trade firm. Together, we are better prepared to execute seamless, uninterrupted service and cost-competitive solutions for our customers.

Giffin Sheet Metals Limited has confidently grown to acquire industry recognition in the ICI sector. Giffin Contractors is dedicated solely to providing quality service to automotive- and OEM-associated industries. Giffin Combustion Services Ltd. is dedicated to gas-fired combustion equipment and services as well as thermal systems in both industrial and commercial applications.

Smith and Long is the fastest-growing large-scale, multi-trade company in the Canadian market. Uniquely positioned in the traditional fields of Electrical, Mechanical, and Engineering, Smith and Long also has divisions focused on HVACR, Construction, Tunnelling & TBM Refurbishment, Data Communications, and 24-hour Electrical and Mechanical Service and Maintenance.

On a day-to-day basis, it’s business as usual. Giffin’s current accreditations and affiliations will remain in place (i.e., ISO, ISNetworld, CWB, TSSA) and your contacts at Giffin remain unchanged. In the near future, our head office
will relocate to the Carlingview Drive and Hwy 409 area. Otherwise, during the transition period, the Giffin family will continue to lead this dedicated and talented team and provide the same quality, service, safety, and integrity on which we’ve built our reputation, while integrating and leveraging Smith and Long’s strengths.

“The Giffin team is very excited about this new venture, which will be mutually
beneficial to Giffin, to Smith and Long, and to our combined customer base.”

“We look forward to providing the same innovative solutions and high calibre
of service that Giffin’s customers have learned to expect. We’re excited to
tap into Giffin’s 71+ years of multi-industry expertise.”
