The Hopewell Group. One Remarkable Vision.
When Sanders Lee came to Canada in 1991, he envisioned a group of companies that would lead their industries and be respected throughout the business world. He wanted his to be a company in which people shared a set of common values - dedication and passion, leadership, respect, innovation, shared success, accountability and teamwork.
This philosophy has taken hold across the entire group of companies and drives our corporate success. From our warehouses in Brampton to Hopewell’s head office in Calgary, our employees celebrate teamwork and together, strive to conquer new challenges. As a result, our business gains energy, and our people are empowered to care more, learn more and succeed more – proving that together we are, in fact, achieving the impossible.
