HALIFAX, Nov. 14, 2017 /insPRESS/  – On Side Restoration Services Ltd. is excited to announce their further expansion into the Canadian Maritimes with a new Halifax branch led by industry veteran Alex Williams, branch manager.

With a successful On Side branch already in St. John’s Newfoundland, and strong contacts throughout the Maritime area, the company sees opportunities now to grow within the Nova Scotian market.

Jay Kielt, regional manager Eastern Canada, shared “On Side has been in the wings for a while now waiting for the right time to enter this market. We’re pleased to report that 2018 is the year we stretch and grow. First Halifax, and next we hope to further expand within the Atlantic Provinces.”

Mr. Kielt is pleased to welcome Alex Williams, branch manager, to the eastern seaboard. Mr. Williams has been with On Side over a six-years, and has over 12 years industry experience. Kielt continued, “Mr. Williams took over our Grande Prairie branch back in 2014 and quickly turned it into one of our best performing locations. We look forward to Alex’s strategic approach being applied to this new market for On Side.”

“It’s very exciting for myself and my wife to be returning to the Maritimes. Born and raised not far away, we look forward to the east coast community-knit lifestyle and a fresh place to put down roots. I look forward to reaching out to the business and insurance communities in Halifax and getting to know new faces. Our office location is still getting scouted out but I’ll have boots on the ground ready to go in early 2018,” explained Alex Williams.

Mr. Williams is well-versed within the emergency restoration sector. He’s worked in several positions including the field, operations manager, project manager, as well as his latest role as branch manager.
