Lo­cal busi­nesses re­ceive SABEX nods

Saskatoon StarPhoenix - - Business -

Three Saskatoon busi­nesses have re­ceived two nom­i­na­tions each for the up­com­ing Saskatchewan Achieve­ment of Busi­ness Ex­cel­lence (SABEX) Awards, to be held on Oct. 28 in Regina.

Yanke Group of Com­pa­nies has been nom­i­nated for the Cana­dian Bankers Award for com­mu­nity in­volve­ment, an award for which the com­pany has been nom­i­nated pre­vi­ously. Its com­pe­ti­tion in­cludes BMO Bank of Mon­treal Saskatoon, Canada Safe­way Ltd., SaskCen­tral and Triple 4 Ad­ver­tis­ing Ltd.

Bryan Richards, vice-pres­i­dent of busi­ness de­vel­op­ment for Yanke, said the com­pany’s core mis­sion “clearly de­fines that we be a com­mu­nity leader.”

The com­pany is in­volved with the Chil­dren’s Health and Hospi­tal Foun­da­tion and the Yanke CARE Foun­da­tion, Richards said.

“Our man­date is to sup­port the chil­dren of our prov­ince, specif­i­cally those with health is­sues,” he said.

Yanke was sur­prised to be nom­i­nated in the ser­vice cat­e­gory, be­cause there are so many other good busi­nesses in the rest of the prov­ince, said Richards.

“It’s a lit­tle sur­pris­ing . . . and re­ward­ing as well,” he said.

Other nom­i­nees in the ser­vice cat­e­gory in­clude Sand­Cas­tle Re­sort, Be­neath It All Lin­gerie, Swim­ming Pools by Plea­sureway and Ex­press Air.

Ex­press Air has also


nomi- nated for the Saskatchewan In­dus­try and Re­sources Award for new ven­ture, along­side Ea­gle Drilling, Ozona­tor In­dus­tries Ltd., Per­due Oa­sis Golf and RV Re­sort and West­ern Prime Meat Pro­ces­sors.

The other busi­ness, So­lar Hy­dro­gen En­ergy Corp. (SHEC) Labs, has been nom­i­nated in the Tech­nol­ogy-In-Ac­tion (TIA) new Saskatchewan prod­uct and Phys­i­cal En­vi­ron­ment cat­e­gories.

Three other busi­nesses are nom­i­nated in the TIA cat­e­gory, Flexxifin­ger Q D In­dus­tries Inc., Ground Ef­fects En­vi­ron­men­tal Ser­vices Inc. and Ozona­tor In­dus­tries.

Ozona­tor In­dus­tries is the other nom­i­nee for phys­i­cal en­vi­ron­ment.
