LÉVIS, QUE., FEB. 25, 2021/insPRESS/ – René-Charles Landry, President of GUS is pleased to announce that GUS has partnered with the Pro-Claim Group in British Columbia, adding four new locations to the network as GUS continues their expansion plans across the country.
With CEO Tony Scott at the helm, the Pro-Claim Group operates across British Columbia and Alberta in five different branches: their flagship location Platinum Pro-Claim Restoration (PPCR) in the Greater Vancouver area, a second PPCR location in the Fraser Valley, Down’s Construction in the Greater Victoria Area, ProStar Cleaning & Restoration within the Calgary Metropolitan, and McKnight Restoration in Canmore.
Platinum Pro-Claim Restoration is a leading provider of 24/7 full-service property restoration in the Vancouver Mainland. Over the past 30 years, PPCR has built a solid reputation throughout BC within the insurance industry and among homeowners for their focus on exceptional customer service and expert craftsmanship. With a dedicated team of more than 250 employees across their branches, top-of-the-line equipment, innovative technology, and long-standing trusted relationships, PPCR continues to grow and redefine the service industry.
As an organization that strongly believes in giving back, PPCR is committed to supporting their community by donating funds, supplies, and volunteer hours to many charities and organizations in need, including the Chill Foundation, Breakfast Club Programs, RCRG (Richmond Cares, Richmond Gives), ConquerCovid19, SafeCare BC, Richmond Food Bank, and many more.
PPCR is a corporate leader in environmental responsibility, adopting and championing several green initiatives in their mission to become the first restoration company in Canada to reach net-zero emissions. As the first and only Canadian restoration company to be ClimateSmart certified, they are committed to electrifying 25% of their fleet by 2023, with 18 electric vehicles and counting. PPCR has also made their 9 EV charging stations free to the public in an effort to pay it forward to their community. In addition, their industry leading recycling and recovery program, created and operated in-house, has successfully diverted 85% of their job site waste from landfills since 2017.
“We are thrilled to embark on the next step of our journey alongside GUS,” said Tony Scott, CEO of Pro-Claim Group. “At Pro-Claim, our primary focus has always been on the client: helping them through a difficult time as we work to quickly restore their lives back to normal. Our mission is to treat each claim as if it were happening in our own homes, providing exemplary service and clear, consistent communication with a compassionate approach. It was extremely important to us to team up with a partner that shares our core values, which is what we’ve found with GUS. Now as part of a Canada-wide network, we have an opportunity to bring our elevated standards of customer care to a larger market, and we’re excited to continue to expand and build upon the success we’ve achieved thus far.”
“This is truly an exciting time for GUS,” said René-Charles Landry, President of GUS. “Partnering with Tony and his talented team in this capacity is a major coup for our network. Their reputation for service and expertise is second-to-none in the industry. With the level of success that they have achieved during their tenure, along with their proven track record for operational excellence, welcoming them into the GUS family was an easy decision to make.”
René-Charles adds, “As the largest restoration network in Quebec, we have long been strong in the East. Now after several years of firmly focusing our efforts on our national expansion, our partnership with the Pro-Claim Group truly solidifies our presence both in Western Canada, and coast to coast as a national service provider. We are proud to have the Pro-Claim Group represent GUS in BC and Alberta and look forward to their continued success and growth in the months and years to come.”
