Vancouver, BC – November 3, 2016

SYSPRO, a provider of award-winning, best-of-breed Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) software solution for on-premise and cloud-based utilization, today announced that one of its customers, The Layfield Group, has earned a finalist nomination in the Manufactured Products Category for the 2016 British Columbia Export Awards. SYSPRO Canada is proud to be a premier sponsor of this year’s awards.

The BC Export Awards are the province’s most prestigious awards paying tribute to the success, achievements and innovative approaches of BC’s top exporting companies.  Conceived in 1982, the program was initiated by the Ministry of Economic Development to raise the awareness and recognize the contribution that the manufacturing and service sectors were making to the economy of British Columbia. Since that time, the number and categories of the awards have changed and varied in order to reflect the changes that have taken place in the economy of the province. Business in Vancouver currently organizes the annual event.

“The success of this program which has recognized over 300 companies since its inception, has reflected the growth and diversity of BC’s economy over the past 30 years. With substantial markets now in every region of the world, BC’s exporting companies have become truly international in their scope as well as their vision,” according to Sue Belisle, President & Publisher, Business in Vancouver Media Group.

“We are very proud to be recognized amongst the best of BC’s exporting elite,” according to Tom Rose, President and CEO of The Layfield Group. “We are committed to providing high quality, polymer-based products through innovation, technology and the development of our people. Export products play an important role in the economic growth of our province and they will certainly continue to play a key role in the growth of our company.”

“We congratulate the team at Layfield on this outstanding recognition,” according to James Moffatt, President of SYSPRO Canada. “We laud their achievement through the innovation their team continues to forge. We are excited to sponsor the BC Export Awards which recognizes the achievements of leading Canadian manufacturers, who are excelling at export growth. We take pride in our customers’ aspirations to achieve performance excellence, and dedicate our talented team of experts to help our customers achieve that success.”

Winners will be announced at the BC Export Awards Luncheon on Friday, November 18th, 2016 from 12:00 – 2:30 p.m. PT, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel.
