Optimo Drywall Ltd.
The owner of Optimo, David Martins, is a second-generation journeyman whose father came to Canada from Portugal in the early 70's with very little money, spoke broken English and didn't have an education. Forging to build a life in Canada his father saw opportunity in the residential building industry and mastered the skill of drywall taping. From there, he started his own business, built relationships and friendships in the community, raised a family - and set the foundation for a prosporous future for his children. Teaching his son the trade, David now runs a successful drywall operation in Edmonton for over 15 years. The family is thankful to Canada for the opportunities presented to the Martins family.
