Visit Ardent

ARDENT Industries Ltd. is a company with a proud and distinct legacy. Defined by a strong continuity in values and vision, our character as a family business reflects our ongoing focus in building long-term relationships and creating positive experiences for our employees, customers and suppliers. We will always be intensely committed to giving back to our communities.

ARDENT was formed in 2016, by brothers Jason and Bryan White, as an amalgamation of their independent brands, Steelway Building Systems (est. 1976), Zelus Material Handling (est. 2002) and ExSteel Building Components (est. 2004).

The name ARDENT reflects our goal of continuing to build a passionate, authentic and caring organization – a value-driven family business. It all started with a sense of entrepreneurship, a drive for community involvement and our father’s lifelong passion for designing and building.


Our companies have built a reputation in the industry based on our father’s core values of honesty and integrity.
