Ten35 MicroPro Suites is owned and managed by Wilson Investments of Renfrew Ltd., founded almost 40 years ago in 1976 by Malcolm (Mack) Wilson. Mack was born and raised on a farm in Renfrew and developed an entrepreneurial spirit from an early age. In 1970, at the age of 32, he started Wilson Car Sales with a used car dealership, this was followed by a Nissan dealership as well as a Trailer Sales dealership which went on to become Fleetwood Canada’s top dealership in the country in 1982.
Not content with running just one business, and despite comments that Renfrew did not need rentals, Mack proceeded to purchase a parcel of land on which he developed 18 rental units. This was the start of something big as over the next 40 years, he went onto develop and manage over 300 commercial and residential rental units. His incredible insight then led him in 1990 to start M. Wilson Home Developments where he began building single family dwellings and then multiple family units 5 years later. With over 900 homes sold, Home Developments is nearing completion of Hunter Gate Phase 3 and will be moving to Phase 4 in 2016. Wilson Investments sold the majority of its residential buildings in 2011 and currently manages 6 commercial properties.
Mack credits his amazing success to his team, from his administrative staff to all those who have worked with him to build his properties over the years. He claims that without them his vision for Renfrew could not have been achieved.
Wilson Investments received the Renfrew Chamber of Commerce President’s Award in 2005, 2006 and 2010. Mack has also been the Chairman of the Renfrew Industrial Commission for the past 24 years. His commitment and dedication to the commercial and residential growth of the Town of Renfrew has been monumental.
