Devin Maltais-Project Manager

Devin started his career on the tools, working for a commercial painting company in Vancouver. Over his 9 years with that company, he progressed to foreman, then to estimator and project manager. He was a driving force in quickly growing and diversifying the business into a holding company that purchased and fully renovated apartment buildings throughout the Lower Mainland. These buildings ranged from 15 to 40 units.

In February 2018, Devin moved to Campbell River and joined APS, where he is excited to be part of a young, growing company with the shared values of high quality, performance and excellent customer service. His extensive renovation background, keen eye for detail and strong communications skills will ensure that your renovation experience is pleasant, and that your project is completed on time and on budget.
