If you haven’t already heard, Flaman Group of Companies (Flaman Sales) has been selected as one of the Top 100 SME (small to medium employers) in Canada. This is a big accomplishment to have our company recognized in this category as it is considered the most competitive one (80% of all applications fall into this category). Small to medium sized businesses make up 99% of all enterprises, and 90% of private employees are work for SME’s, so you can see how the competition gets thick.
 
The winners are chosen based on eight criteria points
 
-       Physical workplace
-       Work atmosphere and social
-       Health, financial and family benefits
-       Vacation and time off
-       Employee communications

Having worked for a few different companies in my lifetime, Flaman definitely stands out. Working here I feel like part of the family and not just a number. Winning this award, gives us a chance show the rest of Canada the kind of place Flaman is to work and be proud of the culture all of us help to create.

The Moosomin rental store is expanding!

Posted by Flaman Jan 19, 2012

Flaman Sales and Rentals in Moosomin is happy to announce that we have officially begun construction on our new facility here in Moosomin. As part of the original take over from Wayne’s Rental Centre back in the spring of 2011, Flaman knew that they would soon need a much larger facility to work out of as business grew and expanded.

The current building of 4,000 square feet and a half acre of yard space will soon become a building of more than 13,000 square feet and 10 acres of yard space located on the west side of Moosomin, along the busy #1 and #8 highway intersection.
 
It will be a full line rental store, as well as a fully stocked parts store and retail outlet for all the lines that Flaman carries in the other corporate stores, like Yorkton. The Moosomin staff are looking forward to the new facility and proud of it becoming a cornerstone of the local business sector.

Three successful open houses/contractor appreciation days!

Posted by Flaman Jul 07, 2011

Three successful open houses/contractor appreciation days! The weather was perfect, well maybe too perfect as a lot of the contractors we not able to make the contractor appreciation barbeques as they were taking advantage of the nice weather and were trying to get caught up on the projects that have been delayed by rain.
We would like to thank everyone who came out to Swan River, Moosomin and Yorkton to help us celebrate and take in all of our displays. $1,433.00 was raised for The Children’s Wish Foundation and again we would like to thank Hilti for covering all of our expenses so that all the cash donated will go to the foundation to help grant a child their wish.
The lucky winner of our grand prize of an 11’ Progression Trampoline was Jeff Bimji from Yellow Grass, SK. We wish Jeff and his family many hours of fun on the trampoline.
A special thank you to all the reps that were able to attend: Hilti, Multi-Quip, Bobcat, Ditch Witch, Top Con and Makita.
If you weren’t able to make the open house in your area you can still stop by anytime and see what we have to offer for sale or rent.

New store in Moosomin, SK

Posted by Flaman Apr 12, 2011

We are excited that as of April 1 Flaman Group of Companies took ownership of Wayne’s Rental Centre in Moosomin. The Moosomin store will be expanded into a full size yard site like Flaman Sales in Yorkton, and will sell a full line of ag implements and equipment—such as bins, aeration fans, grain carts and grain augers—and will include a store with a full retail area, fitness equipment, service bays and a rental area. The store will be managed locally by Peter Nabholz and the general manager will be Tyson Becker who works out of the Yorkton store. There will be a close relationship between the Yorkton, Swan River and Moosomin locations so if an item is not available in Moosomin we can bring it in from Yorkton or Swan River.

L-R: Peter Nabholz, Charlene Swanton, Darren Kindlein, Wayne Beckett and Randy Fyke

The Moosomin location is currently looking to buy about 12 acres of land to build a new store on and be in the new location by 2013. Until then the store will operate out of the former Wayne’s Rental Centre. Almost a million dollars of rental equipment, trailers, water fittings, pumps and water tanks will be added to inventory.

The Yorkton store started 15 years ago with just one employee and has evolved into a store with 25 employees. We can see the same thing happening in Moosomin.

Moosomin is a very strong community and a good fit for the Flaman Group. We have a lot of customers in the Moosomin area that have supported us over the years and we felt a need to be there to look after and serve them better.

Wayne Beckett decided to sell to Flaman Group as he sees us as a well-run company that values its employees and customers. As a family-run company, the Flaman Group looks after its staff and places a lot of importance on being a part of each community it’s in. In the future the Moosomin store hopes to work with local charities as Flaman’s philosophy is to give back to the community as much as we can.

 

If you are in the Moosomin area stop in, say hi and see what our new store has to offer.

Frank Flaman's generosity continues with Haiti donation

Posted by Jennifer Thompson Jan 15, 2011

One year after a devastating earthquake struck the capital of Haiti, Frank Flaman has once again generously given half a million dollars to support the relief effort.

In a simple presentation on Jan. 12 at Flaman Sales in Nisku, Flaman donated $250,000 to the Salvation Army and $250,000 to Oxfam. These funds are in addition to the $500,000 he donated to the same charities shortly after the earthquake hit in 2010 through the Frank Flaman Foundation.

“These charities do a lot of good work,” says Flaman. “And there’s a real need in Haiti. There’s still so much suffering there – people are living in tents with no clean water.”

Around 230,000 people died and 1.5 million were left homeless after a magnitude seven earthquake struck the Haitian capital of Port-au-Prince last year. Billions of dollars in international aid have been donated toward relief work, but money is still needed to reconstruct the devastated city.

“This donation is a symbol of the generosity Canadians continue to demonstrate as Haitians struggle to rebuild their country,” says Robert Fox, executive director of Oxfam Canada. “It's a tremendous display of support at a time when it's needed most."

Since the earthquake, Oxfam has provided clean drinking water and sanitation facilities to more than 400,000 displaced people, provided 98,000 people with emergency shelter, distributed hygiene kits containing personal-care items like soap, shampoo and towels to 120,000 people and assisted 175,000 people in reopening businesses and removing rubble through cash-for-work programs. Among other programs, the organization has spent $19.5 million on water, sanitation and hygiene and $11 million towards emergency food security and livelihoods programs.

The Salvation Army currently operates 49 primary schools throughout Haiti, along with several children’s homes and secondary schools. The Army’s medical work includes maternity programs, dispensaries, tuberculosis clinics, primary health care centres and a nutrition centre.

“I would like to express our sincere gratitude for the support Frank Flaman has provided for our work in Haiti,” says Karen Diaper, The Salvation Army’s assistant public relations director. “This donation will help many people on their road to recovery and redevelopment. Without such community minded, generous people as Frank Flaman, The Salvation Army wouldn't be able to provide such assistance, in Haiti and around the world.”

Along with its support for Haiti, the Frank Flaman Foundation has funded and helped countless global charities provide their valuable services, both locally and around the globe. For more about the foundation visit www.flaman.com/foundation
