North Van's Miles Industries 30th Anniversary

Jan 26, 2006

By Catherine Barr


The 30th Anniversary Celebration and Open House at Miles Industries was a big event. The company, who is a leader in the fireplace industry, showed off its new warehouse/showroom at Dollarton Highway and transformed it into a pseudo jazz lounge complete with live music, food and a presentation that highlighted their many years of achievement. Invited guests were also treated to a tour of the assembly line and showroom that features an impressive line of Valor fireplaces exclusively marketed in Canada and the US. Congrats to all involved.

Due to server capacity, you will not be able to access or click through to the larger photographs. With over 250,000 unique visits each month, our site would quickly exceed the amount of memory needed.

If you would like to receive a copy of a photograph, then please send an email and enclose the details of the event, the date, the name, the photo number and the names of the people in the photograph. Also, for security reasons, I prefer not to email copies of pictures to anyone other than the people who are actually in the photo. Thanks.
