Our History

Leslie & Associates founder, Malcom Leslie, had worked as a firefighter for many years when he started selling fire extinguishers to his contacts in the fire services industry. In 1997, Whelen Engineering Company Inc. approached Malcom, asking him to promote their emergency lighting & warning products and services throughout Eastern Canada. Since then, Leslie & Associates has grown to represent four manufacturing companies across Canada: Whelen, Havis, OPS, and Elsag.
