A Lifelong
Passion

ARDENT Industries Ltd. is a company with a proud and distinct legacy. Defined by a strong continuity in values and vision, our character as a family business reflects our ongoing focus in building long-term relationships and creating positive experiences for our employees, customers and suppliers. We will always be intensely committed to giving back to our communities.

ARDENT was formed in 2016, by brothers Jason and Bryan White, as an amalgamation of their independent brands, Steelway Building Systems (est. 1976), Zelus Material Handling (est. 2002) and ExSteel Building Components (est. 2004).

The name ARDENT reflects our goal of continuing to build a passionate, authentic and caring organization – a value-driven family business. It all started with a sense of entrepreneurship, a drive for community involvement and our father’s lifelong passion for designing and building.

“Our companies have built a reputation in the industry based on our father’s core values of honesty and integrity.

People, Passion, and Family

People, passion and family are the three constants that have led us throughout our history. From our father, Glen White’s, first days as an employer, he recognized the responsibility he had, not just for his employees, but also for their families. This was the foundation for his beliefs as a business owner; “care for people like you would care for your own family”.

As a company, our inherent value and appreciation for our employees, customers, vendors and the community have been critical components to our success since 1976. Those same beliefs and values continue today through Glen’s children and grandchildren.

“Our philosophy is that business should be ENJOYABLE.
