Willson International Celebrates 100 years!
2018 marks our 100th anniversary of serving importers and exporters in North America. Willson was founded in Fort Erie, Canada by my great-grandfather William in 1918, and initially we serviced the ferries that ran between Buffalo, New York, and Fort Erie. Today, with offices in Ontario, British Columbia, New York and Michigan, we continue to put our customers front and centre by making short and long term business decisions that improve customer service, make the customs process easier, and make Willson a family-friendly place to work.
Our core values of Urgency and Purpose, Continuous Improvement, and Courage help us stay focused on customers, while our Commitment to Family and Community help create a strong corporate culture.
A small percentage of businesses make it to 100 years and 4 generations of family ownership, and a strong part of our success is the result of the hard work of our industry leading, loyal and knowledgeable staff.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers and employees on helping us reach this milestone. Cheers to the next 100.
