Paying respect to our founder, Roy Sands

It is with great sadness that we announce our founder Roy Sands passed away on Friday. It is a huge loss for PLM, as he was a truly inspiring business personality and a cherished father to Karen and a loving Grandad to Joel and Roni.

Roy’s vision for Planned Lighting Maintenance started small, but with big ideas, a clean and relamp business where lamps were actually cleaned in large bathtubs, and the office operated out of a neighbours’ garage. As the years went on and Roy and the team secured larger contracts, PLM climbed the ladder to become leaders in the industry.

If any of you were lucky enough to have had the chance to meet Roy, I am sure you will all agree he was a memorable character, a great entrepreneur and had a fantastic sense of humour, although he could be somewhat mischievous. Even though Roy had taken a step down from the business, his presence remained and the now the legacy must live on through the PLM Family.

Last year, when PLM celebrated our 50 years, we asked Roy what was the mantra that he lived by, to which he replied, “never give up”.

We will miss him dearly and feel blessed to have had him in our lives.
