Our Story

On the other hand, MSC looks to the future, enriching its strong roots through borderless creativity—operating, innovating, and creating.

Breaking Ground

MSC was founded by Steve Ivanitz in Kelowna, BC, in 2002, and they hit the ground running with a 100,000 sq. ft. project for MAAX Bath Inc. in Armstrong, BC. Steve's father, Jim, helped land the project, which catapulted MSC forward and awarded them a household name in the steel building industry.

The Financial Storm

The financial crisis took the world by storm, but MSC weathered that storm successfully, landing safely ashore with a major project for Kicking Horse Coffee in Invermere, BC.

Pivotal Growth

Steve, owner of MSC, partners with cousin Corey Ivanitz to manage field crews. The two fluidly work together, along with their expert team, to guarantee all buildings look, perform, and last exactly as intended. This also allows Steve to focus on business development, sales, and marketing.
