    ^ who knows, they could have done a lot of work for a builder who went bankrupt and went subsequently unpaid. Pretty common now.

    Westridge Cabinets is finished. Bankrupt. Large amount of people affected in Red Deer. Girlfriends friend got lucky as she was laid off in March with severance and got another job in the same industry quickly.

    A redditor uploaded a pic of the notice on the door.

    And Westridge bought Classic Kitchens last fall and absorbed their operation. Know a few cabinet installers who were subbing to Westridge and their payout structures on their jobs was quite different than anyone else in the industry, I would bet that those installers are happy they left. It will be interesting to see which companies get Westridge's work, from what I've heard the quality of the installs of their product was very poor in the past few months. Might be a good opportunity for an old fart like me to fix up some of that shit.

    A downhole coil tubing tools company did 35 layoffs yesterday. This was their first "big" round since the start of the recession

    I just got some intel where rumor has it another pretty big gas company is hours away from death. It'll be interesting to see if that's true and who drops next.

    Without red water they all would be under.

    Forgot to mention.... picked up a turnaround/projects pipefitter while driving for Uber last week who told me Keyera is finally shutting down their Nevis gas plant operation. Permanently.

    Grew up not too far from this facility and honestly, it's been a long time coming.

    Westridge Cabinets has apparently promised that all employees and subcontractors will be paid out to the end of July for all work performed. This should ensure that most cabinet install jobs that are currently on site or that have been produced will get installed. It's the bigger projects that will be interesting as those builders will now be scrambling to find other cabinet companies to take over those jobs.
