Taking Organizations to New Heights
Like high performance sport, the business of promotional products operates in a highly competitive field. To sustain a success in the industry over a long period of time requires exceptional service, great team work and constant innovation to produce a level of branded merchandise that can take an organization to new heights.
For over 20 years Promosapien has done just that. The Vancouver based operation has been elevating brands across North America by supplying diverse customers with creative promotional products for employees, customers and other audiences.
But the BC squash community has a particular advantage with Promosapien.
The Head Honcho of the company, Stacy Hall is literally in the game - as a member of the Jericho Tennis Club, as a singles player and recently as a doubles player with Vancouver Racquets Club.
In addition to playing, the 17-year squash veteran supports the game in many other ways.
This includes holding many roles on organizing committees including events like the Jericho Sun & Surf and the 2010 Canadian Nationals. Additionally to complete a 360-degree involvement in the game, Stacy and Promosapien have supported the squash community through multiple events and tournaments as a sponsor.
As a result of her dedication to the sport, in seasons 2014/2015 Stacy was duly recognized by Squash BC with the President’s Plate, an award for supporting the game of squash in British Columbia.
On March 5-10th at Vancouver Lawn and Tennis, Promosapien is once again supporting the BC squash community as they sponsor of the 2019 BC Doubles Championship.
Squash BC encourages our members to support those companies who support squash in BC and who make the game stronger.
If your club, tournament or organization is looking to elevate its game then call the company who loves the game at (604) 682-5105 or [email protected].
Building Community BC Wide
As long as there is a court, regardless of the size of the community, Squash BC is British Columbia's go-to place for all things squash.
So Windsor Plywood as a silver level sponsor for one of the top Squash BC Championship events is an ideal fit. The company is BC wide and considered the go-to for all your building supply needs.
"Our stores are everywhere - you would be hard pressed to not find a store in a community" said one local store owner.
Celebrating 50 years in business and supporting 61 stores across Canada and the Northwest US, Windsor is much more than a chain of building supply stores. Most stores are locally owned and operated by families that have been in the Windsor family for two and in some cases three generations. This corporate culture has been instrumental in cultivating a sharp business focus on customer needs, providing outstanding customer service and supporting the community when needed.
This year Windsor Plywood is one of the four corporate sponsors of the 2019 Doubles Squash Championship taking place on March 5-10, 2019 at the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club.
Playing a Big Part in the Community
The Haebler Group is a Vancouver success story. Three generations have been part of making the Haebler name a proud legacy in the construction business, meeting the highest quality standards, modern design and the attention to detail for delivering trouble-free buildings. But the high standards of the Vancouver based family owned company impacts more than the business.
"We like to play a big part in our operating community and a big part of the squash community" said Thomas Haebler, an estimator at the Haebler Group.
Roland Haebler who oversees the company's operations and his son Thomas are both members of the City Doubles Squash League. Next month you will see the company's leader compete at the 2019 Doubles Championship.
This year the Haebler Group is also teaming up as a corporate sponsor of the 2019 Doubles Squash Championship taking place on March 5-10, 2019 at the Vancouver Lawn Tennis and Badminton Club.
A great solution for the dinner time dilemma
The meal kit industry has boomed in the last 5 years— the industry as a whole is worth over $2 billion in the U.S and rapidly growing in Canada. The trend is catching on, and people are now seeing just how easy and convenient it is to have everything you need for delicious, home-cooked meals delivered right to your door.
Fresh Prep is a Vancouver-based company that’s helping people across the Lower Mainland and Victoria get dinners on the table in just 15 to 30 minutes. Ingredients for new weekly recipes are pre-portioned and pre-chopped and delivered in reusable cooler bags to your home or office so you don’t have to answer the dreaded nightly question, “what’s for dinner?”
Established in 2014, Fresh Prep was co-founded by Husein Rahemtulla, a long-time squash player, who along with his fellow co-founders Dhruv Sood and Becky Brauer, recognized a need for meal kit service that could meet the high standards of quality and convenience demanded by today’s busy consumers, including young families and professionals.
Since the company was founded in early 2015, Fresh Prep has seen huge growth. From just three full-time employees and 100 customers in the first year of operations to over 150 employees and 20,000 customers, in three years, across Lower Mainland and Victoria, BC, customers continue to flock towards this time-saving “dinner time hack.”
Husein is a member of the Evergreen Squash Club, where you can often catch him playing a game or putting in practice time. A firm believer that sport participation is a key part of a healthy lifestyle, he has proven to be a very capable competitor both on and off the court. Rahemtulla was recently honoured at BC Business magazine’s 30 Under 30 Awards.
“Fresh Prep is excited to be partnering with Squash BC. I’m a strong believer in the importance of keeping active and the positive impacts it has on all aspects of life. Squash has been an important part of my life and I’m proud to be supporting an organization who strives to grow and increase accessibility to the game throughout the province.”
Fresh Prep also lends its support to several other worthy community organizations, including the Open Door Society, Kiwassa Neighborhood House and YWCA Metro Vancouver.
