Les Côteaux (Quebec), January 14, 2010 – The CSC Group is honoured to have been awarded the “Business of the year 2009” distinction by the Association des gens d’affaires de Soulanges (L’AGAS) during its annual gala held on January 11. This event aims to recognize businesses in the region that have stood out during the past year. During this period, the CSC Group commercialized the final version of its brand new star product, the Eco2-System, a highly innovative refrigeration system that uses CO2 as a refrigerant.
The year that has just ended was one of the most significant in the CSC Group’s history. During the year 2009, CSC Group installed the Eco2-System at three supermarkets within the IGA family in the Montreal and Quebec regions. A fourth installation at an IGA was completed at the beginning of this year in Cookshire. Unique in the world, this system offers retailers many exceptional advantages, such as an impact on global warming that is up to 3,900 times lower than conventional technologies, as well as superior energy efficiency.
Mr. Serge Dubé, President of the CSC Group, said that he is very happy and proud to receive this distinction from l’AGAS. “This award from the de Soulanges business community means a great deal to us. Our team and our partners strongly believe in this system because we are convinced of the advantages offered CO2 as a refrigerant. This award recognizes more than 15 years of steady research and development work,” he underlined.
