 Excellence in Painting...and People                 Done Right. On Site.
Those of you familiar with us here at Applied Colour know that our company is built on the strength of our relationships. Our sister company, Venger Electrostatic Coatings, believes the same. To that end, and given the new, social media / electronic era that we are immersed in, we wanted to continue developing relationships through a Quarterly Newsletter. But this won’t be your typical corporate newsletter - it will, instead, offer a few peeks behind the curtain, so to speak - a couple of tidbits in every issue that show a different side of Applied Colour and help you get to know Venger Coatings. We hope you like it and share it with your friends and family and, as always, your feedback is greatly appreciated. 
It's an Applied Colour Anniversary!
The fall of 2019 marked 5 years of Applied Colour ownership for Brad and Daryn.  And while the last 5 years have certainly been very busy at times, they have also provided many opportunities to put our company's “why” to the test...

For those not familiar, our company “why” (per Simon Sinek) is “we believe in leaving people and places better than we found them”

Its easy to apply our “why” in our client's spaces – of course we want to leave places better than we found them, we're a painting company – the place had better look better after we leave!!  

The more difficult piece is the people... because, as we all know, people often push our buttons and question “why” did I ever choose this career path!
So what does this look like in the day to day life of Applied Colour staff?

It plays out as being agreeable, responsible and showing up with a positive attitude.  Let's face it, none of us are perfect, so we do our best to find solutions, help others and be of service – to our clients, suppliers and our other team members.

Behind the scenes for Brad and Daryn, they would certainly both agree that holding the company “why” at the forefront of their partnership isn't always easy, but it is equally as critical.  The success of the company depends on Brad and Daryn's commitment to leaving people better than they found them... and it starts with each other!  

Here's to the next 5 years of leaving people and places better than we found them!
Venger. On Site.
The Venger team was at it again this summer with a full restoration of the metal roofs at Whitemud Crossing.  The previous paint had failed exposing the original blue roof but with the use of electrostatic painting the entire complex is shining with it's new silver top.

Our Venger Crew, DID IT RIGHT. ON SITE.
HAPPY NEW YEAR from

Jeanette went home for Christmas (Australia) so, sadly, she’s not in the picture.
As another year draws to a close Michael and his team have been working hard and transforming spaces in the greater Victoria area.  Michael has mostly been busy with new residential, as the Island seems to be going through a growth spurt.  Thank you ACBC for all you do and for creating beautiful spaces for new families.

We Work Hard & We Play Hard
This summer our Operations Manager, Brad Sargent, set 2 fairly lofty goals for himself!

1. Run his first marathon (42 km)
2. Run his first ultra marathon (50 + km in the mountains)

It was no surprise to any of the Applied Team when Brad completed both goals and did so with amazing optimism, determination and passion.  It was clear from the beginning that Brad is a man who walks his talk. The same drive and enthusiasm he brings to running he also brings day in and day out working with our staff and partnering with our clients.  

 
WAY TO GO BOSS ~ NICELY DONE!
Just after crossing the finish line of the
Edmonton Marathon! 
Brad is looking even happier as he crosses the finish line of the Grizzly Ultra Marathon in Canmore.

Friends of Applied
 
We work with so many different businesses and hear about so many wonderful Edmonton success stories that it only seems fitting to share some of these stories with you.
In the fall of  2019 front office management felt the time had come to upgrade our email platform and undertake the daunting and frightening task of changing our email servers.  As is the case with most "renovation projects" it often opens another can of worms.  In our case, the partnership between our email host and our website.  Our IT department (aka - Daryn Kemp) wanted to run in the other direction!

This is where our renovation story takes a turn for the better.  We meet with the team at Pixel Designs and after a short meeting our team felt like this was truly a task we could leave in Pixel's hands. As 2019 came to a close we had successfully merged all of our emails on to a new server and Pixel had tweaked the backend of our WordPress website so that it now functions more smoothly in today's ever changing digital world.

When meeting with Kyle at Pixel his words resonated with our corporate values "We’re not into buzzwords or focused on the latest internet fad. We are, however, dedicated to providing personalized solutions and creating a digital strategy that evolves with your needs and responds to changing business requirements." At Applied we also believe in helping our clients find solutions and we love to give our best personalized service and that is why Pixel Designs is a Friend of Applied Colour.
