“SLAPSHOT” finds a home in Kirkland Lake


"SLAPSHOT" a.k.a. Sydney T. Kirkland, displayed at his new home in Kirkland Lake Ontario; known for producing Gold and Hockey Players

In the town Foster Hewitt famously dubbed “the town that built the NHL”, a fitting sculpture can be found. Designed and created by Northern Ontario artist Mike Camp, “SLAPSHOT” is a 10-feet tall and 14-feet wide metal sculpture welded with 18-gauge stainless steel. It was purchased by Grant Steward of ConSep Pty Ltd from Sydney, Australia as a gift for Heath & Sherwood. It commemorates the recent partnership deal made between the two companies. “SLAPSHOT” had been residing along the side of HWY 11, south of Kirkland Lake, when Grant first saw it. He immediately felt that the sculpture needed a new home as it was uniquely fabricated using the same materials that many of the two companies’ products would have had a hand in making. “SLAPSHOT”, now in its rightful home, has been nicknamed Sydney T. Kirkland (Sydney to Kirkland), demonstrating the strong link between the two companies and the countries of Canada and Australia.

Kirkland Lake has produced its fair share of hockey talent over the years. Notable players from the town include Bill Durnan, Dick Duff, Ralph Backstrom and Mickey Redmond who combined, have won 16 Stanley Cups. There must be something in the water!

If you take any pictures with our new friend Sydney, please forward them to [email protected] to be entered into our visitor’s log.

Striking Gold at the PDAC Conference

March 7 2017 - 12.5 kilo-gold bar
PDAC March 8 2017

From March 5-8, Heath & Sherwood turned a few heads at the Prospector’s & Developers Association of Canada, Conference & Trade Show. The PDAC attracts over 20,000 people to Toronto each year, and our 90 years in business allowed us to stand out among the 90 companies that were in the Northern Ontario Show Case Pavilion.

Being able to interact with people in this setting was a golden opportunity for us to pick up some invaluable experience. Thank you to all who were involved, and the those who attended.


Celebrate 90/20 with us next year!

As if celebrating the 90th year in business wasn’t big enough, 2017 also marks our 20th year of the MCM Partnership as the owners of Heath & Sherwood.

We’re extremely thankful for all the support we’ve received. Thank you. As a small token of our appreciation, we’ll be hosting guests in September 2017 at Southside Shuffle for a 90/20 party to remember! That will be our 7th year, and we can’t wait!


We dig music, especially the blues

Heath & Sherwood has been a proud supporter of the Tim Horton’s Southside Shuffle for 6 years. Taking place in Port Credit (Mississauga, Ontario), this event always proves to be a great time for all who attend.

We’d like to also thank all the volunteers, musicians and sponsors this year that made this possible. Click the video on the left and take a look at a little tribute to some of the friendly faces involved.
