It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of the company founder, Gerry Black (retired).

He passed peacefully December 21st, 2021 and is now looking down on us with his wife and co-founder Roseann.

We are sure that they are both smiling happily at the success of the company and thanking all of our customers for their ongoing support.

He set the bar.

He made sure that employees knew their stuff.

He was constantly teaching 'hands on'.

He honestly cared for his customers.

Gerry paved the way for the family to continue growing the business.

The family has responded… exactly as they were taught.

We (all of the Spartans) will press forward in his honour, in true Spartan fashion.

Gerry will be remembered for his incredible work ethic and,

if you ever met him personally, his sharp wit and wicked sense of humour.

Gerry always came home with his helmet & shield. Sometimes dented pretty badly, most times shining bright as the sun.

On the 21st of December 2021… we brought him home on that shield, helmet on his chest.
