About Us

Les Bertram and Sons (1985) Ltd. (LBS), has been family owned and operated since 1939 and was originally founded by Leslie Howard Bertram. As a result of Leslie’s hard work and honesty, he was able to lay the strong foundation of the company, which LBS still prides itself on today. In 1985, the company was purchased by Bill Bertram (one of Leslie’s four sons) and adopted the legal name of Les Bertram and Sons (1985) Ltd.

After working for the company for many years, Gary and Geoff Bertram purchased the company from their father in 2009. In late 2016, Gary became sole owner of the company and along with his son Ryan, are excited about the future of Les Bertram & Sons. Growing up with a strong sense of tradition, quality and integrity provided by their grandfather, naturally translates into the values which Gary operates the company under today.
