On April 26-27 Bestbuy Distributors hosted its annual general meeting, awards ceremony and trade show in Mississauga, Ont.

Bestbuy members from across the country, along with the corporate management team and industry suppliers gathered near Toronto Pearson International Airport, for this annual event. Bestbuy announced its new board of directors for the year and also presented a cheque to Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto for $31,500.

Dr. Mike Seed, head of Cardiology at Sick Kids was on hand to receive the award and talked about the need to continue investing in research to help pre-mature babies stand a greater chance of survival via investments in technology such as artificial wombs.

This year’s Awards Gala was particularly moving in that former Bestbuy Chairman, the late Dale Devlin was bestowed with the William Elton Outstanding Support Award.

Devlin, who also owned and operated Halton Automotive for many years, had a huge impact in building Bestbuy Distributors into what it has become today and his widow, Mary, along with Dale’s family members was on hand to receive the award.

Other awards included the Horace J. Pratt Vendor of the Year award presented to Mevotech; the Cornerstone Award given to Promax; the Bestbuy Headquarters Award to VisionOE NuGeon; Rising Star Partners Award to Magnacharge and the Marketing Partners Award to Baldwin Filters.

On April 27, Bestbuy once again opened the doors to its massive warehouse complex at 3355 American Drive in Mississauga for its annual trade show. Members and other industry professionals had the chance to visit and conduct business with a whole host of vendors, ranging from lubricant manufacturers to technology solutions providers.
