Four outstanding businesses in the area were recently honoured by the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce. The awards were presented before a sold out crowd on November 8.
This is the ninth year the Steinbach Chamber has recognized businesses and their owners for their contribution to the community. Awards are presented in four categories including the Young Entrepreneur Award, Customer Service Award, Community Involvement Award, and the coveted Business of the year.
The 2012 Business of the Year award went to Penn-Lite Electrical and Mechanical. The company has been in the electrical contracting and service industry for 30 plus years
The Future Leader award was given to Dr Luke Singh owner of Hanover Dental for being a young entrepreneur under 35 years of age who has established or expanded a business in the past two years.
The Community Involvement is awarded to the business that demonstrates exceptional performances in its support of recreation, amateur sports, arts and culture, charitable or non-profit volunteer groups. This year’s winner was Prudential Riverbend Realty.
The Steinbach Chamber of Commerce took to the internet for customers to cast their ballots for this year’s Customer Service Award winner. After hundreds of votes, the top three nominees were separated by only twenty votes. The winner of the 2012 Customer Service Award went to Source for Sports.
