In this episode, Riley Day, co-owner of Progressive Westman speaks with Mariette Mulaire and Chuck Davidson about his company's beginnings in selling sanitation supplies which has expanded to include mats, uniforms and fire protection. In honouring their statement of "always be willing to try something different", the company quickly pivoted to bottle and label hand sanitizer when they noticed a shortage and high demand for the product. Riley expresses how being local first, when it comes to both sourcing and selling, has been a key point in their business. 

Progressive Westman began in August 2009 in Brandon, Manitoba. Over the years, they have expanded their products to offer more variety to their customers and have most recently moved into a new facility in Brandon allowing them to hire more staff and better serve the community.
