Curators of Cutting-Edge Technology Solutions

Our people and the services we provide define our firm. We take pride in delivering a first class client experience.

Who We Are

Graytek was started by James and Caroline Gray in 2003. James brought expertise in business, technology and construction, and Caroline in finance and business management.

Although this initial team was small, together they developed the business, completed increasingly complex projects and earned a great reputation.

Building the company from the ground up, James and Caroline were able to define and establish Graytek's mission and values and build on this strong foundation - always striving to move forward with integrity, and exceeding customers' expectations - for all projects, big or small.

Graytek today has a strong team of over fourteen individuals with expertise in key areas of the business - design, production and programming. They now work out of a 5,000 square-foot Design and Production Centre, with the ability to demonstrate how Graytek offers real life solutions that have been tried and tested.

Graytek is a Control4 dealer with over 18 industry awards recognizing their projects as best in class in North America, and now works on some of the largest homes in the Vancouver and North Vancouver area.

Our Mission

Our mission is to be a successful business that serves our North Vancouver, BC Customers, Employees and the Community in which we live and work with integrity and passion. We are committed to doing this by living out the values that we believe in.

We will serve

  • our customers by always going above and beyond expectations
