“The master of his trade”


Dan has been plumbing since shortly after high school. He completed his apprenticeship program to became a red seal journeyperson and worked his way up to foreman all with the same company until starting his own Metro Vancouver area business “Dancar Mechanical” in 1993.

Dancar Mechanical was incorporated in 1998 and at one time employed 26 employees. During these years Dan oversaw large projects such as 300+ unit highrise concrete construction to many over 10,000 square foot homes and specialized commercial projects.

Preferring to be hands on and working with contractors that share the value of being better than average, Dan downsized his business to become “The contractor's plumber” for a limited number of contractors.

In 2007, Dan, Carmen and the business moved to Vancouver Island to fulfill a dream of “being in paradise” and living life the way Dan did business – “with quality”. They purchased a home just outside of Nanaimo and never regretted their decision of moving away from the big city.

Well liked and respected by all; contractors, customers, plumbing inspectors, employees alike; Dan is loyal, cool under pressure and works easily in a team environment. He wants to ensure his plumbing not only works but lasts and looks good too. He is a plumbing artist and trains his employees with these same above mentioned work principles.

“The organizer”

Whether it is answering customer service calls, emails, accounts payable/receivable, typing quotes, HR, overseeing the business development/advertising/website and/or time management, Carmen is there to answer for it. She is also known to be a bit of a material girl, that is you can sometimes see her delivering materials to the job site.
A developer's/builder's daughter, Carmen first started her career in sales and sales management and in 1993 attained her Real Estate licence. She practised Real Estate while working as “the organizer” for Dancar Mechanical and until moving to the Nanaimo area with Dan. She now focuses her attention on Dancar Mechanical Ltd.'s business.
Carmen's experience in the development, real estate and plumbing industries has made her well versed with the demands and challenges of the construction industry.
Many businesses come and go particularly in the construction industry, but it is Carmen's strong administrative and customer service background that has ensured fiscal management and responsibility to last the years. Dan and his team are better able to concentrate on delivering quality on the construction site when Carmen manages the office work.

Ryan joined Dancar Mechanical Ltd early in 2008 and went through his apprentice program taught by the best - Dan. In 2013 shortly after getting his red seal ticket, he left for Alberta. Recognizing how beautiful Vancouver Island is and how valuable the work ethic and environment he left behind was, Ryan returned to Dancar Mechanical Ltd in late 2015. We are so very pleased to have him back and part of the foundation of our company.
