Grand opening of Kooy Brothers
The grand opening of the Kooy Brothers’ impressive new home on Mar. 25 was truly a family affair. Family members and staff joined City of Toronto Councillor Giorgio Mammoliti to officially cut the ribbon to open the 50,000-sq. ft. building. In centre is company president Bill Kooy about to snip the ribbon. Kooy refected how the business began with repairing lawnmowers in their parents’ garage at Jane and Finch. Kooy and his brother Harry now operate one of Canada’s largest providers of landscaping, snow plow, and construction equipment. The business employs 38 people, including 14 family members. Ross Wallace, president of Kubota Canada told those present that Kooy Bros. is his company’s flagship store.
