It always makes you feel special when you’re given an award. Especially when you were not expecting one. ProQuip has been helping small to large businesses with saving money on their energy costs and further lowering their energy consumption through retrofitting businesses with lighting options. How simple a task, when you look at the high cost of electricity these days. ProQuip located in Brantford, Ontario expanded into the USA a few years ago and landed in Dunkirk, New York.
ProQuip was awarded “Rookie Business of the Year” for 2014 and we were not only surprised but pleasantly welcomed to the community with open arms since day one. You can find out more about the award by CLICKING HERE.
ProQuip International President/CEO Sam Tavernese, after accepting the award, said he could not have thought of a better place to have launched his international enterprise than Dunkirk.
“I have nothing but high regard for the area,” he said. “You have embraced our company … ProQuip is pleased and committed to furthering this positive and forward-looking spirit (brought on by NRG’s repowering). I and ProQuip look forward to … accepting you as business colleagues and collaborators in truly making this area a beacon of economic strength once again. Together, we will light up Dunkirk.”
ProQuip is a “green” engineering business that provides incentive-eligible LED lighting and solar LED technology. The Canadian-based company located its first U.S. office in Dunkirk last year at 855 Main St.
