Vancouver, BC – November 22, 2017

SYSPRO, a global provider of industry-built ERP software, today announced their customer, Saltworks Technologies was named a finalist for the 2017 BC Export Awards, recognizing their outstanding contribution and achievement in the clean technology sector. Using innovation and breakthrough technology Saltworks Technologies offers industry leading technologies and services for treating challenging wastewater, with minimal environmental impact. SYSPRO Canada is proud to be a premier sponsor once again at this year’s awards.

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 and varied to reflect the changes that have taken place in the economy of the province. Business in Vancouver currently organizes the annual event.

“The success of this program, which has recognized over 300 companies since its inception, has reflected the growth and diversity of BC’s economy over the past 30 years. With substantial markets now in every region of the world, BC’s exporting companies have become truly international in their scope as well as their vision,” according to Sue Belisle, President & Publisher, Business in Vancouver Media Group.

“We are very proud to be recognized amongst the best of BC’s exporting elite,” according to Joshua Zoshi, COO of Saltworks Technologies. “The innovations developed by our dedicated team have been recognized internationally as economic and environmentally sustainable solutions for treating challenging industrial wastewaters beyond the reach of conventional processes. We look forward to continuing to deliver our invented- and made-in-Canada advanced water treatment technologies to customers around the world.”

“This year’s finalists exemplify the strength and depth of the BC export community,” according to James Weir, Vice President of Sales for SYSPRO Canada. “Regardless of the sector they serve, this year’s finalists have all raised the bar of excellence for their companies and the local BC economy. We congratulate the team at Saltworks and recognize their significant contribution in the clean technology sector and their dedication to continued excellence for improving natural resources.”

Winners will be announced at the BC Export Awards Luncheon on Friday, November 24th, 2017 from 12:00 – 2:30 p.m. PT, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
