AJIA, which means Asia in Japanese, got it’s start in 1994 as an export housing company shipping homes to Japan. Then in 2000, AJIA launched into custom designed prefabricated homes in Western North America. Proud to be locally owned and operated, AJIA believes in delivering excellence to our clients and earning our reputation every single day as an honest business built through 25 years of operation. At AJIA we believe it is not enough to succeed – one must exceed. It means to be the very best at what we do, to innovate ahead of the trends, to employ highly qualified and motivated professionals and maintain the highest level of customer service. We will gladly provide references from any of our clients or suppliers.
AJIA began supplying 2×6 and log home packages to the Japanese market and have diversified into recreational home prefabrication for local and export markets. Shipping house packages overseas nurtures essential practices for the housing supply business – sharp attention to detail, about effective product control systems, keen understanding that “cheap” is not usually “best”, and experience with a wide variety of job-site challenges.
Since 2003 AJIA has been prefabricating recreational cabin packages for the local market. It was a natural decision to offer our experience servicing remote job-sites to clients in BC’s Gulf Islands, Sunshine Coast or Interior – or Alberta – or Ontario – so we launched AJIA to provide full-service retail housing packages for Canadian clients. In 2005 we purchased our manufacturing and office facility on Crown Street, North Vancouver and in 2012 AJIA became a fully licensed home builder with a full crew of professionals and subtrades to build residential homes in the lower mainland, sunshine coast and sea to sky corridor. Today we are thrilled to offer design, prefabrication, supply, delivery and set-up as our core services.
