Barrie Chamber AwardBarrie, Ontario, November 29, 2012 — Busch Systems International, a leader in recycling, waste and compost containers has been named the Manufacturing Business of the Year for 2012 by the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce.

The award was presented at the annual Barrie Awards Gala held by the Chamber of Commerce on November 28, 2012. The awards are in their tenth year and recognize excellence in business across a spectrum of categories.

Busch Systems was nominated for the award and was a finalist along with Ice Halo and Barrie Press.

“This is truly an honour”, stated Craig Busch, President of Busch Systems. “As we continue to grow as a company and supply our products worldwide, there is nothing quite like receiving recognition here at home”.

Busch Systems began in 1985 supplying blue boxes for curbside recycling collection in municipalities across Ontario. The company now features the world’s most complete line of recycling, compost and waste containers. In addition, the company designs and develops more new moulded recycling, compost and waste containers than all other manufacturers combined.

The company is dedicated to the local area, having just expanded into a brand new 65,000+ square foot facility. All Busch products are made in North America and are 100% recyclable.

“We’re here to stay”, states Busch. “In recent years, we have seen many companies move their operations offshore. We’re very proud to remain here in Canada with access to the greatest workforce in the world. Our team is the best imaginable and it’s because of them that we are here today”.

Busch is no stranger to local awards himself, having won the 2007 Arch Brown Entrepreneur of the Year Award in Barrie.
