Our history

Family run businesses can offer the very best in quality, service and expertise. With the pride of family ownership, our customers can trust that their items will be fresh, crisp and clean.

Purchased in 1975 by Dan Dricos, WVLGC has been in the family ever since. It started as a small, three employee company and grew over the years to include a newly expanded building. This allowed WVLGC to offer in-house processing of clothing, household items and most dry cleaning requirements.

In February 2011, Scott Dricos purchased WVLGC from his father. Over 22 years, Scott has built up experience in all areas of the business. With an eye to the future, Scott is leading WVLGC through enhancing the business and a commitment to continuous improvement such as environmentally-friendly equipment and renovations to create a clean, contemporary interior. With 15 employees, all with a commitment to excellence, West Van Lions Gate Cleaners is poised to take this family dedication to quality into the years to come.
