The Butler Brothers Family
A part of the rich heritage of the Saanich Peninsula and continuing to play a key role in the development of Vancouver Island Communities.
Although Butler Brothers Supplies Ltd. was incorporated in 1954, the Butler family has been a part of the History of the Saanich Peninsula since Captain George Stephen Butler began farming there in 1868.
The ‘Butler Brothers’ of the company name were Claude, Wally, Tom and Eric, all grandchildren of the Captain. Claude Butler, who was president of the company for quite a few years, passed away in 1986. Wally, the second brother, passed away in 1992. The company is now under the leadership of the Captain’s great-grandson, Brian Butler.
The brothers were doing business of the island before the Second World War, when they were engaged in logging and the sale of gravel. In the late 1940s they built a small store to handle the sale of a limited selection of building materials. Following this, in the early 1950s, they became involved in the manufacture and sale of ready-mix concrete.
Today, Butler Brothers Supplies Ltd. has three gravel pits in operation – Keating Cross Road, Sooke and Duncan – and sells ready-mix concrete from Keating Cross Road, Bay Street in Victoria and Sooke.
Butler Brothers Supplies Ltd. continues to grow to meet the needs of Island consumers and to carry on the tradition of quality, integrity and service to Vancouver Island communities.
