SYSPRO, a global provider of industry-built ERP software, today announced their customer, Prepac Manufacturing Ltd., was named a finalist for the 2017 BC Export Awards in the Consumer Products category, recognizing their achievement delivering innovative consumer products to meet market demand. For over a decade Prepac has transformed itself from a traditional ‘bricks and mortar’ furniture manufacturer serving regional customers into a leading international supplier to most major North American online retailers. 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.
“It is an honor to be recognized as a finalist for the 2017 British Columbia Export Awards,” says Michelle MacKinnon, VP, Finance & IT, Prepac Manufacturing. “As a BC company that has grown organically to become one of North America’s largest Ready-to-Assemble furniture manufacturers and e-commerce direct to consumer specialists, we are proud to be recognized amongst the best of BC’s exporting elite.”
“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 Prepac on this outstanding recognition and laud their achievement through the innovation their team continues to forge.”
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.
