Burnaby Board of Trade's 2013 Burnaby Business Excellence Awards for Environmental Sustainability..... the results!

We won!

We'd like to thank the City of Burnaby and the Burnaby Board of Trade for the honor of being recognized for the Environmental Sustainability category in the Business Excellence Awards.

In 2006, we switched to a completely water-borne paint system, not because of governmental regulations, but because the technology is available and we care deeply about our environment.

We began by urging the paint manufacturer to release their products to our facility for a test run, and then, with great success, we finally launched the products. In March, in the presence of the Mayor, his wife, and many friends, we celebrated the introduction of our brand-new waterborne paint system with an Open House.

Since we relocated our business from Downtown Vancouver to Burnaby, we have been warmly welcomed by the local community of which we are proud to be a part. The City of Burnaby and the Burnaby Board of Trade have set up new sustainability committees, for example Waste Management, and The Environmental Pledge, and we are ecstatic to be able to contribute and work with both.
