Progressive Systems Surprises Habitat with Big Donation

A huge thank you to Matthias & Kyla Gottmann from Progressive Electrical Systems in Courtenay! Just before our recent key ceremony, they surprised Habitat for Humanity Vancouver Island North with a very generous donation of $12,500!

And let's not forget the impact they have made on our team. Here are just a few testimonials from our staff who’ve had the privilege of working with them and benefited from their support throughout the years

"I have worked with Progressive on five buildings now, and they have been consistently lovely to work with. The owner, Matthius, as well as his staff, keep Habitat and our values top of mind when working with us. They all truly believe in our mission of safe and affordable housing and care about the families. Additionally, Matthius always makes the time to talk to me and answer any questions I may have, which is uncommon for the owner of a contracting company. All around lovely people.” - Shelby Rollefson, Build Site Supervisor
“Fantastic company, great partners and great workers who believe in what we’re doing and love being a part of housing families. Matthias seems to treat his employees like family, and it shows through their attitudes and the work they produce. His son has also worked on our site quite a bit, and you would never have guessed that he was the boss's son.” - Shaun Still, Warranty Manager
