Wightman celebrates 115 years

CLIFFORD –  Wightman has begun a celebration of 115 years within the telecommunications enterprise.

Based in 1908 by Robert Wightman, an enterprising younger farmer from Howick Township, Wightman has grown through the years to one of many largest impartial telecommunications firms in Canada. All through the a long time, Wightman has remained household owned, and is now underneath the management of Paul and Blair Wightman.

Wightman has continued to spend money on telecommunications infrastructure, delivering “Fibre to the Residence” to communities throughout southern Ontario, firm officers state in an April 18 press launch.

“Wightman doesn’t simply convey fibre to cities – it brings progress, jobs, and group help,” the discharge states.

Wightman is pleased with its help for native sports activities groups, kids’s charities, meals banks, group occasions, and college students by the Wightman Bursary Basis.

“We’re extremely pleased with our historical past in serving the group. We’re grateful for the assistance and help of staff, clients, suppliers, and neighborhoods to realize this milestone,” reads an announcement from Wightman co-chairs Paul and Blair Wightman.

To rejoice the anniversary, Wightman has launched a celebration brand and birthday webpage that highlights its historical past and a birthday reward promotion (wightman.ca/birthday) and made plans to be current in group outreach actions all 12 months.
