Our History

It’s been 80 years since Derks Formals & Menswear was founded in Croatia by Stephen Derk. After immigrating to Canada in 1946, Mr. Derk and his family began offering Canadian men choices in every aspect of their clothing needs.

About Company

Since then, we have become one of Western Canada’s wholesale and retail success stories with over 50 employees. We are located at 123 Cree Road in Sherwood Park, Alberta where we house five areas of our business: a uniforms storefront, a formals storefront, our corporate office, embroidery division, and our 32,000 square foot warehouse. We also have storefront locations in Edmonton and Calgary.

Our Experties

Our uniform division, 5 Star Services and Products Inc. specializes in custom, in stock and special-order uniforms. We currently supply uniforms, work wear, wildland gear and much more to emergency and fire departments across Canada. We have a custom uniform program that allows us to customize uniforms to department’s exact specifications.


We ensure that all our uniform staff are fully trained in our standard measurement procedures before they take on customers and/or accounts. This ensures continuity of service overall departments and delivery of a uniform matching all documented specs. 5 Star Services and Products uses a scanning system and procedure to track all status updates, order changes, and which employees deal with your order. Once an order is completed it is brought to our inspection rail, where two staff members are required to check and sign off on the accuracy of the orders. Once approved the order is bagged, boxed, and shipped out to our client.


5 Star Services and Products is committed to providing our customers with a superior product, as well as piece of mind that we will continue to meet their timelines and expectations. This is done through ensuring we have dedicated employees who are excellent at their jobs.
