Our Company 

Founded in 1963, William F. White International Inc. (“WFW”), a Sunbelt Rentals Company, is Canada’s oldest and largest provider of production equipment to the entertainment industry. With offices across the country, the company services productions of all sizes from coast to coast and houses an extensive state-of-the-art inventory, including camera, lighting, grip, specialty equipment, location support and a growing portfolio of premium studio properties. 

Our Shared Purpose

What really gets you out of bed every morning? Other than the smell of coffee, we’re driven by our shared purpose- to make the magic of storytelling happen. It’s not a surprise that our team is comprised of passionate creators and experienced technical experts.  The one thing we all have in common is our love for “moving pictures”, whether it’s glossy high budget TV series or a homegrown Canadian indie film. Our job is to help bring the magic of storytelling to life, by supporting our clients as their go-to Partners in Production. 

Our Values

Values are important to us, not only do they set us apart from the pack, but these shared values also bring us together. At the end of the day, it’s these principles that we strive to live by in our everyday professional lives and what we turn to in the face of adversity.

The Golden Opportunity - Light Up the World

Our Lighting & Grip team is the backbone of our business. No set can go without it, and we’re proud to say that our inventory is the largest–and best–of its kind in all of Canada. HMI kits, LED fixtures, EPA Tier 3 generators, green screens, more feet of cable than you can possibly imagine. We carry everything our clients’ might need to keep their productions humming through the seasons, from the rain and sleet of the Pacific Northwest to the bright skies of the Atlantic summers. And if clients are looking for more sustainable power solutions, our entire team is committed to staying on top of the latest equipment innovations to help make every set as clean and green as can be.
