About Us

The Galway Business Centre is a crown jewel of the master planned community of Galway. Perched atop the city, Galway promises to be a preferred location for businesses and residents alike.

The Community

Never before has a vision for a “live, work, play” community been so comprehensively developed in this province. Galway will be a place where people can live among open, green spaces with walking trails and parks. A place where you can grab a coffee in the morning, have lunch at a local café, and enjoy a cocktail on your way home in the evening. All of this just minutes from your doorstep.

Complimenting this residential area will be premiere retail stores and the cornerstone of Galway, Galway Business Centre. Galway will be the most strategic location for businesses to operate, with high visibility from the Trans Canada Highway and easy access for clients.

Galway offers prime real estate for heavy and light industrial users looking to grow or start their business. The Centre welcomes large multinational corporations as well as local businesses operating across a wide range of industrial sectors, particularly companies servicing the oil & gas and mining industries.

President

A prolific and iconic individual in both the public and private sectors, Danny Williams has established himself as a business and community leader with decades of experience and an incredibly diverse and impressive portfolio. His early success in establishing the largest personal injury law firm in the province was followed by a very lucrative telecommunications career and other ventures in the fields of oil and gas, tourism, and sports. He then moved on to become the Province’s 9th Premier, serving for 8 years, during which time the province transformed to become one of the largest economic powerhouses in the country. Under his leadership, the economy experienced unprecedented growth and prosperity. Since then, Danny has stepped back from public life and created DewCor to represent his various business interests. Today he continues to identify new opportunities in the private sector.
