Company History

After immigrating to Canada in 1949, Stan Klemencic settled in the Quinte region and worked to establish a life for him and his family in his newly-adopted country. An entrepreneur at heart, he soon began working for himself, building homes in Belleville, Trenton, Frankford, Batawa and the surrounding Quinte area. His success is directly related to his commitment and dedication to hard work, honesty, superior value, and the quality of the product itself. Through years of hard work Stan Klemencic developed and maintained a reputation of honesty and integrity.

These attributes laid the foundation for the lessons he passed on to two of his sons, Mark and Andy. Together they worked with him in his building and development business with Mark joining his side in 1979 and Andy joining their team in 1986.

Mark Klemencic grew up watching his Dad develop land and build homes. School vacations were spent working on the jobsites, learning the business from the ground up, and a love for the business developed. After obtaining a degree in Civil Engineering from Queens University in 1979, a career in home-building and land development began with full-time employment working in and managing his fatherís building business.

Andy Klemencic knew by his early high-school years that a career in accounting was his calling. After obtaining a degree in Administrative and Commercial Studies from the University of Western Ontario, he remained in London, Ontario where he worked for the national accounting firm of Coopers and Lybrand (now Price Waterhouse-Coopers). After several years in London and obtaining his designation as a Chartered Accountant, he decided to return to the Quinte area to oversee the financial duties of the Klemencic group of companies.

In 1991, with the agreement and encouragement of their father, Mark and Andy began to operate their own home-building business, Klemencic Homes Inc. and have built and developed several hundred homes in Trenton, Belleville, and throughout the Quinte Area. They have strived to maintain their personal contact with customers, employees, sub-contractors suppliers, municipal staff, and others that are a major factor in the success of their business. Their reputation for well-planned developments of superior quality homes is well-known throughout the area. As a result of this, they enjoy and benefit from the best form of advertising: word of mouth referrals from their satisfied customers.
