M and J Woodcrafts Ltd. Named 2010 Business of the Year for Delta
It was with great appreciation that M and J recently accepted the award for Business of the Year for Delta in 2010. We were very honoured to be selected as a nominee and to win the title was an outstanding achievement for the Associates of the Company.
This recognition shows us all at M and J Woodcrafts that the hard work we have put into becoming as environmentally sound as possible as well as our work towards new product development has not gone un-noticed in the community.
To quote Kermit the Frog "It's not easy being green". It can be expensive and a hassle that unfortunately most manufacturers aren't willing to take on. However, if any of you know Mike, then you know that in his mind, the bigger the hassle - the greater the importance that it gets systematically dissected and removed. So that's what he's been doing for the last 30 years...creating a manufacturing business that is safe for his associates to work in, and responsible for the waste that it creates, regardless of its cost or complexity.
Not one piece of manufacturing material that we use goes to the landfill. All of our materials are either re-used or recycled. We are very proud of our Zero-Waste facility but need to keep pushing ourselves to find more ways to protect the Environment, and hopefully others will follow our lead.
The only thing more important to us than the Environment is our Associates. We are blessed with some of the brightest and hardest working people in the industry. We treat them with the respect and fairness that you would extend your own Family members, and they pay us back with their dedication, work ethic, and commitment. Without them we would not have been able to diversify and grow as a Company.
Thank you again to the Delta Chamber of Commerce for this Award. We assure you that we will not rest on this Laurel, but use it to push ourselves forward to become better than what we are today.
