CP first opened its doors in the 1960s as an insulation distribution business. Ken Suppes and Martin Scobie purchased the company in 1972 and built the company to include many areas of expertise in the construction products industry throughout Western Canada. In 2004, management and ownership were transferred to Scott Suppes, Kevin Suppes,and Gerald Haller. Both Scott and Kevin brought an entrepreneurial spirit similar to their father who built CP. Gerald’s strong accounting and finance background were a compliment to the skill sets of Kevin and Scott. In 2008, Scott and Gerald continued building on those strengths. Both old and new leaders have the commitment to quality in everything under the CP umbrella – from the company’s products and services to the work environment.
