The name “Canaan Industries ,” was chosen based on the Biblical account of Abraham, leaving his home and moving to a new land that the Lord would show him.  This land was called “Canaan”, and is known today as Israel.  Starting something new can be challenging and rewarding.  Like Abraham, Brad placed his faith in God, who has provided and blessed his business.
