MEDIA RELEASE – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SUDBURY, June 8, 2015 – BESTECH is delighted to announce that the engineering firm was presented with the prestigious Collège Boréal President’s Award at the Sudbury campus’ graduation ceremony last Thursday. The Collège Boréal President’s Award/Prix de la présidence du Collège Boréal was created to showcase and thank a private sector organization for their efforts and contribution to Collège Boréal’s success or the advancement of pertinent projects.
The timing of this award was significant as both Collège Boréal and BESTECH are celebrating their 20th anniversaries this year. Mr. Pierre Riopel, President of Collège Boréal, is pleased to present this award to a partner company who is also commemorating 20 years of service. Mr. Marc Boudreau & Mr. Denis Pitre founded BESTECH in 1995 to address the need for a group dedicated to system integration and industrial automation. By developing a very specialized skill set, BESTECH quickly gained recognition as a leader in this domain. After two decades of sustainable growth, BESTECH has flourished to a critical mass of engineers, technologists, programmers, and support staff, able to support the challenges that face today’s industrial markets.
In addition to providing funding to the College to further its growth and development, BESTECH has welcomed a number of Collège Boréal students for placements, thus allowing them to acquire hands-on experience in their fields. The company has also hired many Collège Boréal graduates to complement their talented workforce.
“It is an honour to be recognized amongst the number of organizations eligible for this award throughout the community”, said Marc Boudreau, President & Co-CEO, BESTECH. “The students from Boréal have been a great addition to our highly-skilled team. The quality of graduates that stems from Boréal is remarkable.
