Who we are
RJW–Gem Campbell Stonemasons Inc. is an exciting amalgamation of two prominent Canadian masonry businesses. The new company was created in the spring of 2011 with the purpose of continuing and enhancing the success of the stonemasonry business established by RJW Stonemasons.
RJW Stonemasons was founded in 1987 and enjoyed continuous growth through the provision of stone masonry services to the government, as well as the industrial, commercial, institutional and residential construction sectors. A broad range of offered services included historic masonry restoration, new masonry construction, stone carving, stone supply, masonry conservation and training.
In the mid-1990s RJW Stonemasons was relocated from Whitby, Ontario to Ottawa, Ontario in order to help address the increasing demand for qualified stonemasons in the region. Participating in the massive restoration works planned for the Parliamentary Precinct and establishing a training program on the Centre Block South Façade project were also key factors in the decision to relocate.
Growth continued following the relocation, resulting in the establishment of a large blade stone cutting facility in Ottawa in 2000. This further broadened the range of services available and provided the capacity to serve clients outside of Canada. In the fall of 2009, RJW Stonemasons outgrew its facilities and built a new 10,000 square foot state of the art facility. The new facility provided significant capacity gains but also necessitated the search for a suitable partner in order to provide the resources needed to increase development and expand geographic coverage.
RJW Stonemasons worked with Gem Campbell on the Victoria Memorial Museum Building with a very triumphant outcome. Completed in late-2010, this project and the success of the end product prompted partnership consideration between the two companies. These discussions culminated in early-2011 with the formation of a partnership between RJW Stonemasons and Gem Campbell Terrazzo and Tile Inc.
Since its establishment in 1959, Gem Campbell Terrazzo and Tile Inc. has earned the reputation of being one of Canada’s premier marble, granite, stone, tile and terrazzo contractors with extensive projects across Ontario. Gem Campbell also serves as an exporter of manufactured stone to major projects throughout the United States for installation by others. Learn more about Gem Campbell.
The partnership between these two businesses is founded on congruent values, attitudes and beliefs. This includes a company-wide dedication to quality and service, pride in our profession and the achievement of lasting relationships through our devotion to meeting client needs.
RJW–Gem Campbell Stonemasons Inc. now benefits from the combined strength, expertise and resources of these two great partners and can fulfill its commitment to "Give the Past a Future".
