The Ardent Story

While Springwater, Canada is where you can trace our beginnings as a family-owned business, our heart and soul resides with our employees.

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 our father, Glen White's, sense of entrepreneurship, drive for community involvement, and lifelong passion for designing and building.
