Ed Genge

One thing is for sure, he would have chuckled, made some funny comment about it but would have been honoured, humbled and proud that his sons and friends named their company after him.


EDmund GEnge – see it?  EDGE Contracting is a family-based business named after an incredibly hard-working, humble, resourceful man.  Ed Genge, the father of Mark and Glenn Genge, and dear friend of Glen Cook and Hedley Elms, was a man who quite often got his point across by either going silent or saying something pointedly witty!  A mentor to many, he was a man very easy to like.  A mason by trade, Ed was no stranger to hard work, he did it every day.  When they coined the phrase (and we say this because Ed would have laughed!) “He could put the arse back in the cat", they were thinking of Ed.  There wasn’t anything he couldn’t recycle and use again, there wasn’t a job he couldn’t do.


Patient, slow to anger, very funny (he loved a good laugh), Ed enjoyed work; he enjoyed people; he was happy passing on what he knew.  He was a teacher and was extremely well-respected and liked by all who had the opportunity to know him.  Ed’s family always came first.  There wasn’t anything he was prouder of than his wife, children and grandchildren.

Ed passed away in May 2018.  His absence is still felt keenly by his family and friends.  “Work hard. Do your best. Keep your word.”   The foundation stones for success here at EDGE Contracting were laid long ago when Mark, Glenn, Hedley and Glen began to work with Ed.  EDGE Contracting is a tribute to the lasting lessons of hard work, integrity and honourable character that EDmund GEnge has left behind.  And, as Ed would say,

“That’s perfeck.” (not a typo!)



During this phase we work with you to understand your main project goals and assess your overall needs to ensure they are incorporated into the design phase. 



During this phase, we collect all of the information from our consult and create preliminary concepts, budgets, working drawings, etc where required to understand exactly what you need. 



After we have collected all of the information in the preliminary phase, we consult over all details and provide you with a quote and background information on what is required to effectively complete your project. 



After the quote is approved, we finalize all details related to your project through design, procurement, scheduling and more.



With all details finalized, we kick-start your project and communicate all details necessary throughout it to give you ease. At the end, we celebrate a job well done!

Our Labrador team was approached by a prospective client looking to get a quote on a wheelchair ramp for their son Owen. Knowing how much of a good impact this would make on Owen's daily life, the Labrador EDGE team with the help of RONA & Timber Mart (through material donations) were able to provide Owen and his family with a brand new ramp for free! 


EDGE loves to sponsor the Youth of our province.
