Vancouver, BC – December 13, 2017
Leading producer of softwood veneers and related by-products, recognized for manufacturing excellence
SYSPRO, a global provider of industry-built ERP software, today announced their customer, ATCO Wood Products Ltd., won best Natural Resources category at the 2017 BC Export Awards.
Winners of this year’s BC Export Awards were announced at a gala event at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Vancouver, on November 24, 2017. More than 200 manufacturing executives and representatives from trade, government and industry attended the event.
The BC Export Awards are the province’s most prestigious awards paying tribute to the success, achievements, and innovative approaches of BC’s top exporting companies. Created in 1982, the program was initiated by the Ministry of Economic Development to raise the awareness and recognize the contribution that the manufacturing and service sectors were making to the economy of British Columbia. Since that time, the number and categories of the awards have changed to reflect the changes that have taken place in the economy of the province. Business in Vancouver currently organizes the annual event.
“I’m honored to be accepting this award on our team’s behalf,” said Scott Weatherford, CEO, ATCO Wood Products. “This year’s nominees were an impressive group, and this award means a great deal to our team. We look forward to continuing to deliver the most effective and environmentally sound products for years to come.”
“We congratulate the team at ATCO for their achievement in delivering superior products manufactured from natural resources,” said James Weir, Vice President of Sales for SYSPRO Canada. “We take pride in our customers’ aspirations to achieve performance excellence, and dedicate our talented team of experts to help our customers achieve that success.”
