Travis Murray is a strong and vital addition to our yard team. As well as filling your order in our yard, he is our "Ambassador on the Road." Despite being relatively new to the area Travis knows the area very well and can be depended on to deliver your material safely and in a timely manner.
Originally from Ottawa, Travis has very quickly adapted to small town living here in Morrisburg. He and his wife, Angel, think it is a great place to raise their 3 young children. And, as an avid fisherman, he says, "Living by the beautiful St Lawrence makes living here just about perfect!" As well as fishing, Travis enjoys most other sports, particularly hockey and is a diehard Ottawa Senators fan. (Much to Ron's dismay!)
Travis completely embraces our philosopy that good customer service is essential and the foundation of our business. He is also our "facebook" administrative assistant.
