A Family Business…
From a wide eyed apprentice, to a certified Journeyman, Silvano DeBortoli has been involved in Calgary’s booming commercial, industrial and residential sectors for close to 40 years. After graduating from St. Francis High School, he joined the ranks at the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (S.A.I.T). Four short years later he finished his apprenticeship and became a Red Seal Certified Journeyman plumber and gas fitter, where he quickly began to work towards his now illustrious career in the trades.
Following in the footsteps of his father, Joseph DeBortoli, who started the company in 1964; Silvano has become a Master Gas Fitter, Plumber, and Steam Fitter; which are only a few of the numerous achievements that have laid the path to guiding the company into what it is today.
With a particular attention to detail and dedicated work ethic, Nicholas DeBortoli, Sil’s son, quickly became a welcome addition to the family business as the third generation to the family of fitters.
