Fred Wutzke – Co-Founder & Manager of Equipment
Along with his wife, Elaine Wutzke, Fred is a founding member of Alpha & Omega Endeavors Incorporated. He began providing his clients with high quality finishing carpentry within mid and high-rise projects throughout the Vancouver area and Lower Mainland in 1977. He quickly developed ways to increase the number of units he was able to finish by creating efficient systems that were also known for their expert final outcomes. He also spent time teaching these skills to two of his sons – Glen and Greg Wutzke. Fred continued to work within the finishing carpentry area for many years and branched out into new home construction in the latter half of the 1980’s. In 1998, Fred and Elaine made the decision to take a step back from the day-to-day running of A & O and at that time Fred began to work part-time.
