Our Mission

Nelnor Construction is a competitive construction company in the commercial retail industry, although we also design, supply and install millwork items to both the residential and industrial sectors. Nelnor executes the design intent of all projects with our clients’ vision being our primary focus.

Founded in 1975, by Carlos Mateus, Nelnor has grown to become a well-respected construction and millwork company in the GTA, that has worked on many notable projects, from The Hudson’s Bay, The Keg, Blue Mountain Ski Resort and the Holiday Inn hotel chain. As a family-run business, we fully understand the importance of forming good relationships with our clients. Client care is a high priority for us and we are committed to never losing sight of our clients’ goals.

Our Values

Above client care, the only item we consider a higher priority is the safety of our employees, which is why we have a safe work program. All our employees are up-to-date on the required training and safety measures to minimize on-site accidents. At Nelnor, we don’t take safety for granted. Whether it is the staff within our manufacturing facility or our licensed millwork installation crews, safety is always our number one priority.

Our Facility

Our Facility

We are proud of our 25,000-square-foot, in-house manufacturing facility in Markham, ON, complete with automated CNC machines, beam saws, edge banding machines, and our in-house paint spray facility. We’ve come a long way since 1975, when we started in a 1,000-square-foot facility in North York. Today, we are able to offer our clients competitive pricing thanks to the fact that our millwork is done in-house and have maintained long-serving working partnerships with many well-known retailers.

Vendors / Clients

Having been in the commercial retail construction business for the last 45 years, Nelnor Construction has amazed an extremely large customer base. Our clients include many of the world’s top vendors, competing in today’s competitive global market.

Over the years, Nelnor Construction has received high praise for our professionalism and knowledge, in achieving our clients’ goals.

In 2010, we were awarded with the Grand Prize special design award by Hudson’s Bay Company for “The Room” which is a high end fashion shop constructed within the HBC flagship downtown store in Toronto. This award sits proudly in the main lobby of Nelnor’s head office.

With our large client base, we continue to receive accolades and referrals for vendor installations across Canada. These referrals are by no means taken for granted and we continually strive for 100% customer satisfaction.
