“Battleshield Industries Limited has been with Welch for almost a year. All we can say is what phenomenal level of service we are receiving for our growing manufacturing company. It is an immense pleasure to work with Matt and his knowledgeable team. We feel very taken care of, with timely advice and invaluable expertise. Their fees are very reasonable, no surprises, a peace of mind. Welch was highly recommended to us and in return, we recommend Welch for anyone who is looking for a reliable and trusted partner.”

Luc Thibault, Founder and CEO Battleshield Industries Limited

“We sought a higher level of service and value-add compared to one of the Big 4 firms with which we worked previously. Welch was our first choice based on past experiences and recommendations from other similar sized firms. From the outset of the relationship, we feel that our business is much more valued and that understanding our needs, safeguarding our interests, and delivering solutions represent key priorities for Welch. We are exceptionally pleased with the decision to move our business to Welch as we receive far superior responsiveness and value-add than we initially envisioned. Welch is a true financial partner to Pegen.”

Fergus B. Groundwater, President Pegen Industries Inc.

“They said what they would do and they did what they said - excellent service. The associate who worked on my account sat down with me and reviewed my needs. They were able to give an idea of the fee for the service I required and delivered the service within the quoted range. I appreciate the ability to budget for my services. I truly appreciate the time taken to confirm my needs and follow through. They were also able to help me plan for the future and how to be better organized for the following year.”
