Ross’s two sons, Barry and Ted, joined the family business in the 1960s. The company diversified into retail lumber, building supply and rental divisions. Barry Bertram took over the retail lumber division, while Ted managed construction.


Ted and Barry eventually bought the company and ran it successfully for many years. In 1998, they sold the retail operations and formed a new company involving Ted, Barry, and Barry’s daughter, Lisa. Today, Bertram Construction (Ontario) Ltd. has grown to become Barrie’s principal ICI General Contractor.

“Many visitors have been ecstatic about the design, the quality of the workmanship and the timeline in which this construction was carried out.”
