Board of Directors
David Kent, President
Sean Rayner, Vice President
At the age of 24 Sean Rayner took on the challenge of succeeding his father in their fourth generation family business VETS Sheet Metal. At the time, VETS employed roughly 20 people and was a custom fabricator and light industrial HVAC Contractor. Today the VETS Group consists of VETS Sheet Metal, Electrical, Facility Services, Mechanical and AirTek Pneumatics and employs just under 200 people in three locations. Refocusing the organization and growing it around a strong set of values, core purpose and a lofty BHAG has been fun (most of the time) and challenging for Sean and his team.
VETS has a significant focus on the community raising significant funds and contributing time to several community causes including Valour Place, Little Warriors and Habitat for Humanity. When not growing the 95 year old business, Sean spends time on his acreage with his wife Allison and son Rhys
