Storm Damage Repair

Todd Brothers Storm Repair Crew

On Saturday May 21st a severe weather alert was released for southern Ontario, including Whitchurch Stouffville, the home of Todd Brothers Contracting. Many homes and businesses were damaged in the storm as extremely heavy winds and rain swept through the area throughout the night. There were countless downed trees blocking roads, driveways, and causing concern for the community’s overall safety. The Todd Brothers team jumped into action by removing trees however way possible.   Ross and family jumped in heavy haulers and equipment to clear road ways the next day. In the following weeks Team TB worked daily to clear trees and haul them away especially the hard-hit lake areas where large trees had come down in a very populated residential area.

The project was a huge undertaking, with countless truck-loads of brush, a handful of very hard-working team members, faced with weeks of work in very hot and humid weather . Tree removal is not our typical day-to-day work here at Todd Brothers, but when the community needed us, we rose to the occasion and gave 100%. During this process we received the following feedback from the residents in a neighborhood that was especially hard hit:

 

“I would like to give a big shout out to the folks at Todd Brothers for their timely, thorough and tireless efforts in cleaning up our neighborhoods in Island Lake Estates.  We have many seniors living on the street who would have been lost without you (and the Town) stepping up to help us.

I’m not sure what Todd Brothers are charging and frankly, I don’t care – it was worth every penny.  To Ross Todd, you have some great employees working for you – please pass along our appreciation for their hard work.

Regards,

President – Island Lake Resident’s Association”

 

Often the community does not get to see the work that we do here at Todd Brothers, so receiving such a positive reception from community members was extremely meaningful and refreshing.

Our 300th Piece of Equipment

equipment at Todd Brothers Contracting

Over 40 years later and we have recently brought TB300 to our fleet. This 300th piece of equipment went to one of our amazing Foremen Richard, and seems fitting seeing as one of Ross’ first purchases was a 1980 Jeep Pickup he used as a work truck when he began Todd Brothers Contracting in 1980. Ross is steadfast in his method of building a successful business: don’t accrue debt, and work with great people (crediting his wonderful wife Cindy and talented employees both past and present). These pieces of equipment are always formally welcomed into the TB family, as Ross makes it a point to drop by the Todd family home with any new equipment to take a signature photo in front of wherever he was living at the time. Some may find this odd (particularly his neighbours) but after many years of this ritual, this is surely nothing new to them.

All in all, Ross has built this business and accumulated all 300 pieces of equipment over years of trial and error (ask Cindy about the 3-in-1 Septic truck). But has now finetuned Todd Brother’s offerings, specializing in the world of Heavy Equipment: focusing on Earthworks, Sewer & Watermain, Demolition, and Bridge/Road Construction. With a solid foundation to build on, plus the Todd family at the helm, growth and expansion are inevitable. Growing “Team TB” from the ground up as a member of one to employing over 70 people, it’s only been 40+ years in the sandbox now, we can’t wait to see what another 40+ years will bring Todd Brothers!

Recycling Rocks

Earthworks recycled material

Sometimes we are able to provide services which include re-using unwanted materials from one project and placing them in new location which can help improve the site.

Christmas cheer … Todd style!
