He rented a small warehouse close by to store inventory. He operated the Company from this location for the next 8 years.

In the latter part of 2009 Steve went into a business partnership with Barry Friesen with the intention of Steve phasing out of the business and Barry becoming the President of the company and purchasing the entire shares of the company. Steve still owned the warehouse and would work as a consultant on a part time basis for the next few years.
