Royal Building Products Celebrates Partnership

Royal Building Products, a Westlake company, is marking the 20th anniversary of its business partnership with Monarch Exterior & Roofing Centres, a residential and commercial siding specialist based in Edmonton, AB, which is also celebrating its 20th anniversary in business this year. “Twenty years ago, Errol Schalm, Rick Young, and Chad McDonald opened Monarch Exteriors selling Royal Building Products cladding materials,” says Gary Taylor, vice-president of sales for Royal Building Products. “By focusing on providing exceptional service to the construction industry, 20 years later, Monarch Exteriors has developed into a premier distributor of exteriors building materials in Alberta.” While Monarch carries many Royal products, the majority of its sales include Royal’s vinyl siding and aluminum product lines. After 20 years in business with the addition of hundreds of new product lines, Royal products still account for more than 60 per cent of Monarch’s total sales. Monarch was founded in 2000 with four employees. Today, three of the original four employees are still part of the Monarch team.
