Where we came from and Who we are

Susan and I were born and raised in Calgary, we have kept our roots firmly planted here, working, raising a family and venturing into various businesses over the years.

Woodworking for me started with my father, he worked in the garage on weekends building nicknacks and items for the house that were needed, as well as items for family fun and the outdoors. He would build one of kind camping boxes, camping games and picnic items as well as various items that were required by friends and others. Like my father, it was more of a hobby at first, but I enjoy it immensely, that's why it was so easy to make it a part of my business life.

The company was started when one day, while I was delivering goods to a client from my first business, I over heard him talking with someone on the phone " I needed this by 9:00 am tomorrow and you call me now to tell me that it's not possible" after a few short (not nice) words he hangs up and starts talking to me about the product I have for him. I quietly ask what did you need so badly? He responds " 4 wood crates" I said oh, seems simple, I can build crates. They are not difficult, if you only need 4, I can make them tonight and deliver them in the morning. Well that was my first order for a company I had no name for yet.

That is what prompted "ASCCOA"  an acronym for "A Small Company Capable Of Anything", it portrays how simple you can start something by listening to what people need, and that means you could be capable of supplying anything.  

It is our vision to supply a clean, well made product, from quality and sustainable materials and be a good corporate citizen.

Someone once said "Enjoy what  you do and do what you enjoy"!

I do!

A Small Company Capable Of Any Woodworking job, it’s how we think. 

Thank you

Bruce & Susan
