New Saskatchewan branch opens as First Onsite continues Canadian expansion

First Onsite Property Restoration, with headquarters in the United States, has opened a second location in Regina, Saskatchewan, further expanding its reach across Canada.

First Onsite now has nine locations in major Canadian cities, with this latest addition. Its secondary objective is to strengthen ties between the damage restoration firm and its western Canadian commercial, insurance, and residential clientele.

In response to restoration projects for national clients, First Onsite has been active in the Regina area for a number of years, sending out teams and resources as required. The company stated in its announcement that the increasing demand from clients for a physical presence led to the decision to invest in a local facility.

First Onsite’s regional vice president for the Prairies, Jamie Mackie, commented on the Regina location and how the company is sticking to its expansion plan by establishing facilities in “areas that make geographical sense and allow us to offer improved coverage for our customers.”

“Regina was the next logical step for us in western Canada, and now we’re in every major city in the west,” Mackie said.

With a large number of commercial clients and an expanding residential base, Regina is an ideal location for our business. It is situated on a key trucking and train route that follows the Trans-Canada Highway across the prairie provinces.

Kernon Maxwell, an industry veteran and current manager at the Saskatoon branch, is heading operations at the new location. First Onsite reports that his duties now encompass the Regina branch as well.

Right after becoming a silver sponsor of the Canadian Association of Managing General Agents (CAMGA), First Onsite opened its newest branch in Canada.

On November 15, 2023, the company took part in CAMGA’s Claims Summit as a part of its sponsorship. It was a part of a panel that talked about how to speed up the insurance claims process by using new technology and reducing the likelihood of claims.
