On Thursday November 6th 2008 Scarborough Chamber of Commerce handed out its annual Business Excellence Awards during their Gala held at the Delta Toronto East Hotel.  Calstone was nominated in the “green” category, sponsored by Enbridge Gas Distribution. Throughout the Gala videos where shown outlining each company and the reasons for their nomination. Calstone’s video highlighted our Remanufacturing Program which was highly respected among the local business people who were in attendance. The time had come for the “green” nominees and the winner is Calstone Inc.  Enbridge manager of community relations, Manny Sousa presented the “green” award to Jim Ecclestone who delivered an admirable acceptance speech.  His true passion for business and his drive to be a leader within the manufacturing industry to go “green” is truly inspirational. Jim Ecclestone and fellow colleagues were well received that evening and Calstone is very honoured to be apart of a community where local business are recognized for their hard work and innovated business decisions.

Calstone will continue on its quest to be the first manufacturing company to be 100% off the grid. We will provide our customers with “green” products that are manufactured in an environmentally friendly and safe facility.  We hope to gain recognition for our achievements only to spread the word and inspire others to do their part in reducing their environmental footprint.
