Spalding SSD was established in Calgary, Alberta and has been providing doors and entryway solutions to Alberta and Western Canada since 1952. Spalding fabricates, manufactures, and distributes doors, frames, and access control systems for schools, hospitals, and municipalities. They provide services for both new construction projects and maintenance projects. In 2019, the company chose a new CEO. With this new leadership, the need for a new name and a brand refresh arose. Spalding wanted to leverage their company values, expertise, and accumulated experience over the years to position the company as a thought leader in the industry.
How can we position Spalding SSD as a thought leader and an expert in providing door and entry solutions for commercial and industrial projects in Alberta and Western Canada?
