Since buying the business over two decades ago, it has expanded to become Belmac Supply Ltd., a Kubota dealership and industrial supply store; and Belmac Uniforms, a work wear and professional uniform store that serves Cape Breton and supplies nursing uniforms to the Maritime provinces.
Katherine and Steven are very involved in the local community. Steven has coached youth basketball in the Coxheath and Sydney River area, and has been highly involved in helping Basketball Cape Breton come to fruition. Both avid runners themselves, they have been organizing bi-annual road races for many years, and as of the last three years, have put on the Emma van Nostrand Memorial Run in memory of their daughter. The race raises money for the scholarship fund at Riverview Rural High School in her name. Until recently, Katherine has been a member of the Canadian Women’s President’s Organization, promoting and supporting business opportunities for women throughout Nova Scotia and the country.
