No time to waste
In 1968 Frank Sandor moved from Kimberley, B.C. to Cranbrook, and after paying the movers’ bill of $54., had $30. left in his bank account. Two years later—two years of very, very hard work—Sandor was the owner of a successful concrete-finishing business, a back yard full of equipment that he often lent to other contractors, and an idea. After acquiring a business license on Friday, April 10, 1970, Sandor rented a building, painted it and had a sign made and displayed. By the morning of Monday, April 13, he had moved his equipment into the new building and Sandor Rental Equipment Ltd. opened for business.
Today, at 82 years old, Sandor himself is still actively engaged in running the business.
