Ownership and Management
Comet Strip Enterprises (Canada) Ltd. is a privately owned and operated corporation.
Comet Strip Enterprises (Canada) Ltd. was founded in February, 1982. The modest beginnings of a one suite office soon grew through the hard work and dedication of its founders and employees. In a few months, operations had expanded to warrant an upgrade to a 3,000 square foot warehouse. With strong personal links to suppliers and sincere dedication to customer needs, the company continued to develop at a rapid pace. Today, Comet Strip uses over 140,000 square feet of warehouse space (2004).
The Origin of “Comet Strip”
To appease the desires of their children, the proprietors originally planned to establish a charming video arcade by the name of Comet Strip. Unfortunately, acquiring the permit for such an establishment was not possible. The proprietors were fond of the name and carried it over to another venture, widely known today as Comet Strip Enterprises (Canada) Ltd.
The comet, a celestial body traveling eternally through space in a clear path, defines our organization well. We have direction, desire, and means to fly prosperously into the future.
