Sam’s career in Canada began as an accountant at a local scaffold company. On August 26, 1974, Sam and Siranoush Lazarian established their own scaffold business with a motto “Need Scaffolding? Call Sam – the Scaffold Man!”
Canada Scaffold Supply Co. Ltd. was born to provide both the commercial and residential markets with engineering, supplying and erecting all types of scaffolding. He started off by selling and renting imported scaffolding from Italy and Germany. Over the next few years, he began to manufacture his own scaffolding equipment, simultaneously developing a line of connectors for wood and concrete construction – CSS Connectors.
Thirty years later, Canada Scaffold has grown from 5 employees and one location, to over 80 employees and three locations. All locations are conveniently located on Mitchell Island in Richmond, B.C.
