Business Excellence Recognized at The West Island of Montreal Chamber of Commerce’s Accolades Gala 2017

Pointe-Claire, June 7th 2017—Over 300 members of the business community took part in The West Island of Montreal Chamber of Commerce’s (WIMCC) 2017 Accolades Gala, on Thursday, June 1st. The event took place at the prestigious Montreal Airport Marriott In-Terminal Hotel, where the recipients in the 10 categories went up on stage to receive their trophies. The theme of this year’s Gala, Get on Board with the Chamber, reflected the important role the Chamber plays in representing the interests of its members, namely in some of the infrastructure and transportation issues (Dorval Circle, Bridge to Nowhere, REM – Réseau électrique métropolitain).

In the Desjardins Business to Consumer Services category, DLC Greenteam was awarded with the Accolades trophy. In the RBC Royal Bank Distribution category, Bulletproof received the award. In the Paquette & Associés, Attorneys Manufacturing category, the recipient was Tornatech. In the category sponsored by PME MTL West-Island, High Technology & Innovation, Sigma Energy Storage won the Accolade. For the Aéroports de Montréal Export category, Aesus Packaging Systems was the recipient. In the Human Resources category, Laurentide Controls received the prize and the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC) sponsored the Small Business category where Viita Protection received the trophy. For the National Bank Business to Business Services category, Faxinating Solutions received the prize. In the Hydro-Québec Sustainable Development category, Sigma Energy Storage received a second trophy and Volunteer West Island earned the Partage-Action Community Service Award. The Business of the Year, chosen among the all recipients was Bulletproof Logistics.

The implementation of the Accolades competition and the organization of the Gala would not be possible without the help of the numerous volunteers and the support of the financial and service partners of the 2017 Accolades Gala.  The WIMCC wishes to thank them all for their support.

The West Island of Montreal Chamber of Commerce congratulates once again all finalists and recipients of the 2017 Accolades Competition.
