Burcon Construction Limited was incorporated on July 14th, 1983 by Cays Buren at the age of 46, after working in construction and as a business owner since immigrating to Southwestern Ontario from Holland in the late 1950s. Cays’ son Rick was only 18 years old at the time but had a natural aptitude for construction, drafting and hard work. Together they built or renovated many Shoppers’ Drug Marts, Big V Pharmacies, Radio Shacks and several other retail spaces throughout Southwestern Ontario. When Cays retired in 2001, Rick and his wife Liisa purchased Burcon.
Since the change in ownership Burcon has expanded into other commercial and residential niches, such as Dental Clinics and Luxury Residential Kitchens. They have also participated in many youth and immigrant employment programs; assisted 3 employees with gaining their Carpenter’s Apprenticeship, including the Red Seal Trade Designation and have supported many local charities. Their sons Liam and Dylan both work part time for Burcon while focusing on their post-secondary education in commercial flight aviation and health sciences. Their daughter, Chanel is keenly interested in joining the family business soon also!
