Wendy Tilford, Deputy Minister of the Ministry of Economic Development and Trade, was on hand to accept, on behalf Pack-Smart Inc, the Ontario Business Achievement Awards - Market Expansion Award Bronze Medal at the 2011 OBAA Awards held on Monday night in Toronto.
The Market Expansion award is given to companies that exemplify the pioneering spirit of Ontario by successfully establishing themselves in a new export market in addition to their already existing markets.
Throughout 2011 Pack-Smart Inc. has been able to demonstrate a significant increase in export sales and job creation as a result of entering these new markets.
Pack-Smart Inc. has always been a big player in the global export market, with close to 97% of their sales coming from outside Canada. Innovative products such as their Secure Card Printing and Packaging Systems and High Visibility Carton Technology have propelled them to become an industry leader in speed, accuracy, and efficiency while at the same time reducing costs, waste and downtime.
Back in April 2008 Pack-Smart Inc. received another prestigious award from Ontario Minister of Economic Development and Trade, Sandra Pupatello.
"Pack-Smart's technology enabled this company to be more cost-efficient, make a sleeker product, and help our environment at the same time. Now that's true value add," she said. "Pack-Smart is a leader in working with 'green' packaging solutions, including eco-friendly plastics derived from corn."
The Ontario Business Achievement Awards (OBAA) were created to celebrate Ontario's rich history of innovative, ethical and profitable business.
Beginning back in 1983, the OBAA awards have been a place for recognizing outstanding achievement of local Ontario business in innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. Each year hundreds of companies are nominated for their contributions to Ontario's success as a global player. http://www.obaa.ca/
