Cambridge, ON - GeoSmart Energy is the proud recipient of a Business of the Year Under 50 Award presented at the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce's 9th Annual Business Excellence Awards. Held on March 25th before a sold-out audience at the Armenian Centre, the awards recognize Cambridge area businesses or individuals that have demonstrated a significant and sustained commitment to positive business development, economic growth and diversity.

In announcing the award, Cambridge Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Greg Durocher noted that "in spite of the economy, this year's winner was in a growth mode of unprecedented measure. From its humble beginnings less than five years ago, GeoSmart Energy has grown into a remarkable leader in geothermal technology leading to its expansion into a 40,000 square foot facility here in Cambridge."

Mr. Durocher pointed out that energy savings today are no longer merely environmental practice but rather a part of every business plan for sustainability, and an area where GeoSmart Energy is leading the way in providing state-of-the-art solutions.

"We are delighted that GeoSmart Energy has been acknowledged in this way by our business peers here in Cambridge," says Cheryl Marco, President, GeoSmart Energy, who was on hand to receive the company's latest award. "This award is a direct reflection of the efforts of a small but energetic and visionary GeoSmart team that is ably supported by a vast network of equally passionate dealers and contractors across Canada and the United States."

GeoSmart Energy is one of the largest non-manufacturing-based distributors of geothermal-only products in North America and a premium brand name within the geothermal marketplace. Today the thriving business boasts a growing network of 300+ dealers across Canada and more than 600 contractors in the United States and Canada. To keep up with growing demand for its products and services and a team of staff that has more than quadrupled since 2005, the company moved into new premises in Cambridge in the Spring of 2009.

"Our formula for success is deeply rooted in our belief that we're not just selling a geothermal product, but rather a 'system' that is supported by a 'customer-first' mentality, a comprehensive education and training program, a savvy and knowledgeable network of dealers and a highly trained team of installers," notes Cheryl.

While a relatively young company, GeoSmart Energy has already earned a reputation for combining innovative and people-friendly practices with premium, cost-effective, energy efficient and renewable heating and cooling solutions for both home and business. Committed to accelerating the geothermal industry in Canada, GeoSmart Energy is home to what is considered one of the most impressive dedicated geothermal training centres in North America.
