BBOT Announces Beedie Development Group as 2016 Burnaby Business Hall of Fame Inductee
The Burnaby Board of Trade (BBOT) is pleased to announce that Beedie Development Group is this year’s inductee into Burnaby’s prestigious Burnaby Business Hall of Fame. The Hall of Fame induction is a special honour bestowed jointly by the BBOT and the City of Burnaby each year to a widely-recognized, Burnaby-based business that has demonstrated outstanding business success over many years and has had a positive and significant impact on the community.
“I am pleased to announce Beedie Development Group as this year’s inductee to the Burnaby Business Hall of Fame,” remarked Paul Holden, President and CEO of the Burnaby Board of Trade. “Beedie Development Group has been serving the Lower Mainland and Burnaby for over 60 years. Their commitment to quality, customer service, business excellence and to this community as a whole, has been remarkable. There are few businesses that have had a bigger hand in literally building and shaping our city and region, and they will be a welcome addition to the Burnaby Business Hall of Fame,” added Holden.
Founded in 1954, Beedie Development Group is an owner and developer of industrial, commercial and residential real estate. Keith Beedie got his start in the construction business in the 1940’s when he and his business partner purchased their first property in Marpole for $190. The family business grew from there into what is now the largest private industrial land owner, developer and landlord in Metro Vancouver. Having completed 20 million square feet of new construction throughout British Columbia and Alberta, Beedie Development Group continues to thrive and remains committed to a high standard of quality and customer satisfaction.
“We’re extremely honoured to be inducted in to the Burnaby Business Hall of Fame. Our company was established on, and is grounded in, performing quality work and building meaningful and lasting relationships along the way,” said Ryan Beedie, President of Beedie Development Group. “Both our company and our family have deep roots in Burnaby and we are thankful for the support we have received from the people here, and look forward to a future of continued growth within this community.”
