Mellor and Scott Local Business Association

We are an association made up of local businesses from various communities worldwide. Coming together, with associate chapters located in many major centers around the world, we foster the connections and networks within local business communities to support one another, to share resources, to engage in business relationships, and to promote and uphold one another, while enhancing the communities in which they live and serve.

Bringing business owners together to grow together!

We encourage small to mid size local businesses, who are wanting to build connections in this way, to reach out to us. We have many local businesses in various communities. And we can find you a chapter where you can build on your networking with other business owners. If you want, you can also submit a request to start a chapter in your area, if need be.

Lets work together to build a thriving community of local businesses in your area

His company does day lighting, slot trenching, pole setting, pile setting, tank clean outs, and other services offered by means of hydrovac truck service.

His team is busy making sure that when it comes to tile installers in Edmonton, they are the ones people hire! Welcome to your new chapter here and we wish you much success in the future!

A new look for a new year!

As you may have already noticed, our website looks a bit different! This is because we are working diligently to roll out this new site, which will allow us to cut administrative costs and save funds. We will be bringing back all of our prior features, upcoming events, and award photos as we work through the development stage of this site. We would like to send out a great big THANK YOU for all of our talented members who are assisting in this project, along with running their own businesses and websites. Our members are truly amazing and supportive!

Congrats to Wear Parts Canada for their Chapter Award!

Team work, dedication, and commitment to a vision has definitely paid off for our member, Wear Parts Canada. The future is indeed looking bright for this company! Plans for expansion into other locations are in the works and growth is on the horizon. Their Chapter Associated Members voted in favor of awarding Wear Parts Canada the "Rising Star" award recently at a chapter meeting. Congratulations are in order and we wish them the very best in their expansion!

Member Check Ins!

In addition to being very busy currently with asphalt paving and maintenance all over the place, David Mills has volunteered to fill the recently vacated Chair position of his Chapter. David confides in us that the support he has received from his chapter has motivated him to give back to the group and he is looking forward to growing the chapter in the months ahead and assisting future members. We want to thank you for your dedication to making your community grow!

Checking in with us during this crazy season is Septic Service Nashua. Walter Sanges reports that business is still rolling in for his company. They are continuing to provide septic service in Nashua to all his clients and gaining new ones daily. He wants to thank his Chapter for their continuing support and referrals that have been coming in. Another example of Chapter members growing together!

Priority One Security Training checks in with us recently. They have noted an increase in registration for security guard training in Edmonton. They believe, and we agree, that there has been a rise in need of security guards due to the Covid-19 situation. With businesses now beginning to renew their activities, often locations are restricted to maintaining a certain number of clients allowed on site. Other businesses are hiring security guards to monitor the head count of individuals entering and leaving establishments. Thus, keeping in line with new regulations. And creating more job openings in this field.

Painters Enterprise is reporting a steady flow of new clients. They have been continuing to offer interior painting services to both residential and commercial clients. One of their recent clients is taking advantage of reduced bodies in the office spaces and has decided to launch a repaint of their work space. Most of their employees are working from home and this allows for painters to complete the refinishing of areas without impacting employees. They believe that the employees will appreciate the fresh, new feel of their work environments once back to the location on a full time basis.

Edmonton Chapter Continues to Grow!

It is incredible to see the growth that has begun to happen in the Edmonton area! With strong chapters existing in the North and West area of the city, we are so pleased to hear of a new chapter opening up in the South region of the city! As we understand right now, this chapter already has 7 new members and we are so excited to hear about their progress. Val Turner, the owner of Towing In Edmonton, will be leading up the chapter and we want to thank him for his continued support of our foundation. Lets all help him in anyway that we can to make this year a complete success for his chapter!

And one more for the Edmonton Chapter! A new member has joined this chapter, with hopes of connections and opportunities! We wish to welcome Tanner Lewis, the owner of Bookkeeping 4 Edmonton. This company is offering digital bookkeeping and accounting services to other businesses. They also have CPAs on staff to handle the corporate tax filing and statement preparations. Personal income tax is also available, if anyone is interested. Let's help them become the Bookkeeping Edmonton company out there!

Epoxy Flooring for Basements

Homeowners have long known about the durability of epoxy coatings to the concrete floor of their garage. Easy clean ups, durability, and resistance to stains is well known. Design and functionality are also recognized. But there is another benefit to epoxy coatings – waterproofing. You might not recognize that as a garage benefit right off the top of your head. But think for a moment about your basement in the house.

A damp basement is a concern to homeowners. The dampness can lead to nasty bacteria that can also be a health risk. We are talking about mold and mildew. When you apply an epoxy coating to the floor surfaces, you are applying waterproof protection. It will keep moisture from penetrating the underlying foundation. Which could prevent structural damage in the long run. Essentially, water sits on top of the epoxy flooring and does not have anywhere to go. Mopping up any dampness eliminates it and epoxy is resistant to mold and mildew as well.

You cannot deny the ease of cleanup on a nice smooth surface. Epoxy flooring provides a super easy to clean surface. Dust, dirt, and stains clean up very easily with a mop or vacuum. There are no cracks or crevices to trap dirt and grime in, causing a headache to try and keep clean. It is simply a stress-free, easy cleaning job, with minimal maintenance required. Epoxy also tends to be more slip-resistant as well, giving it also a safety benefit.
Epoxy can almost be thought of as a protective shield over concrete. It is very durable and will protect concrete flooring for many years to come. Even if homeowners decide to finish the flooring with other materials, such as laminate flooring or carpeting, what a great base to start from. You can be assured that, whatever you should choose later, the epoxy is still a valuable choice to do now.

Let’s speak for just a moment about the different colors and styles that epoxy coating can bring to your basement. Beside from the fact of it’s outstanding water protection and its durability, it can really enhance the appearance of the flooring of your basement, blending in beautifully with your already outstanding style and finishing touches. We have seen many people absolutely shocked and surprised that the flooring is an epoxy coating.

A lot of people may be under the impression that applying epoxy is easy to do. And they may be right to a certain extent. However, when you choose to hire a professional to handle the job for you, you can be certain that they have ensured the proper preparation work has been done, the correct type of product used for the expected results, and the application of the product is done correctly. It may come down to the difference in having to do constant touch ups or living with a finished result that wasn’t really what you were looking for to begin with. In more situations than one, a professional is hired to fix the issues of the unskilled workmanship. It may be worth considering this, before you attempt to do this yourself, just to save a few bucks. In the long run, it could cost you more.
