A&B Ford Sales Ltd. Earns Business Achievement Award
Automobiles were a recent topic of conversation in the Perth and District business community.
That’s because A&B Ford Sales Ltd. was named the 2012 Perth and District Chamber of Commerce Business Achievement Award recipient.
Handed out at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner on Oct. 25 at Code’s Mill on the Park, the award was presented by its sponsor, EMC Community Newspapers.
For more than 35 years, A&B Ford Sales Ltd. has been selling and servicing vehicles in the Perth and Smiths Falls area. Best known for its great customer service and commitment to the community, the company, includes the Hasler family and key partner Dean Tryon and its staff, was a clear choice as this year’s award winner.
“Brad Hasler and his sister Lisa Hasler as well as the company’s controller, Diane Reckenberg, are active leaders in the Perth and Smiths Falls Community, having raised over $125,000 dollars for the Great War Hospital through the annual Fred Hasler memorial tournament,” explained the award presenter, EMC’s Kevin Hoover. He also noted the Hasler’s involvement with the Lanark Animal Welfare Society, junior and minor sport leagues as well as community events including the Festival of the Maples and the Perth Santa Claus Parade.
The company’s recent building expansion in Perth also earned them accolades.
“They used a local contractor and purchased local supplies and used local talent in the construction. This is quite an achievement and investment and shows their commitment to the community,” said Hoover.
Brad, Lisa and the team accepted the award at the Chamber’s Annual Dinner.
Two more awards were handed out that evening, including the Perth Medal. Retired veterinarian Ralph Fish received this award as he’s been involved in countless community organizations, including the Perth Rotary Club and the Perth Blue Wings Hockey Association. Perth Mayor John Fenik presented the award on behalf of the Town of Perth.
