GeoSmart energy opens new Cambridge facility
Cambridge, ON – GeoSmart Energy has become a bright light in an otherwise dismal economy reinforcing to government and businesses alike that an investment in the renewable energy industry is a positive step forward in improving Canada’s economy. During a time when many businesses are struggling to make ends meet, GeoSmart Energy celebrated the official opening of its new multi-function complex in Cambridge, Ontario on Friday. The 40,000 square foot facility is the new home for the company’s national head office, distribution centre and state-of-the-art geothermal training and testing facility – more than five times the size of its previous 6,800 square foot facility.
The move is indicative of the company’s unprecedented growth and a sign that Canadians are quickly embracing the economic and environmental benefits of using renewable energy to heat and cool their homes and businesses. Since 2005, GeoSmart Energy has more than quadrupled its staff complement and developed a network of 300+ dealers across Canada and more than 600 contractors in the U.S. and Canada.
“Sustainable energy is a sound investment in the future of this country and it’s rewarding to see so many people electing to invest in a cleaner, more cost-effective and energy efficient way to heat and cool their homes and businesses,” says Chad Brezynskie, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, GeoSmart Energy.
“When it comes to developing green solutions for Ontario, GeoSmart Energy brings exceptional leadership, energy and skill to the table, and we hope other companies will take their lead and follow suit,” says Kevin Flynn, Parliamentary Assistant to the Ontario Minister of the Environment, who was on hand to help the Cambridge company mark its official opening. “Going green is good business and its opening up new opportunities for a prosperous future.”
GeoSmart Energy CEO Stan Marco received the Canadian GeoExchange Coalition’s prestigious Prize for National Leadership last fall.
“Stan Marco was one of this country’s first CGC recognized trainers, and today, his company houses what is arguably one of the most impressive dedicated geothermal training centres in North America,” notes Denis Tanguay, President and CEO, Canadian GeoExchange Coalition. “Thanks to industry leaders like GeoSmart Energy, Canada has successfully built a geoexchange infrastructure that is unique in the world and capable of sustaining the ongoing development of our industry.”
The official opening of GeoSmart Energy’s new facility marked a week of activity that saw the company welcome more than 95 dealers from across Canada and the United States to its annual Dealer Meeting and Awards Banquet where it acknowledged the significant role that dealers have had in the company’s success.
