Madero's mission is to be the premier door supplier and fabricator for the Western Canadian Market, with emphasis on sound management, efficient logistics, and consistent, impeccable customer service.
Family businesses all start in a similar way. In our case, in 1947, the Konopaki brothers started a small millwork business in historic Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Canada. The primary focus was on window and door manufacturing. As time went on and the business grew, they created a small distribution warehouse in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and called it Sasko Products.
The doors were opened in 1982 in a small warehouse with a staff of three. In 1996 Lynne Fafard, daughter of Walter Konopaki, was hired to act as Branch Manager. At the time the door industry was in a major upheaval on the prairies and Sasko Products had to be reborn with new vendors and new products.
During the next eight years the staff grew to 20 and an additional warehouse was opened in Calgary, Alberta. Two prefabrication shops were opened, welding shops were added, and the commercial steel division came into being. Emphasis on the door and hardware industry became prominent and window distribution slowly faded off.
In June of 2004, Lynne and Ken Fafard purchased Sasko Products outright separating
Today, three locations exist in Central and Western Canada and Madero has searched the globe to find the best in door system components. With over 70 employees, full prefabrication shops exist in over 70,000 sq/ft of warehouse spacing. Madero provides timely and quality craftsmanship for a variety of products. With an extensive customer base in the four Western provinces, Madero continues to evolve and adapt but has never left behind their strong focus on sound management, effective logistics, and impeccable customer service.
Everyone says it, but we have lived it. Industry obstacles, growth restrictions, and day-to-day business challenges – we have persevered through them all. And believe us, we are very proud of our success!
