Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation welcomes Promation Nuclear as a Gold Sponsor for the Gran Fondo Lake Huron

Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation is pleased to announce that Promation Nuclear has joined the Gran Fondo Lake Huron team for the second year in a row!  As a Gold Sponsor, Promation receives 5 complementary registrations, signage at the event as well as at the start and finish for all courses, recognition on the website and social media marketing at the Gold level.

Originally founded in 1995, Promation—a leading designer and manufacturer of high-quality tooling, automation, and robotic systems—is a privately owned Canadian Corporation that embodies its commitment to embracing ethnic, gender, and cultural diversity within its business practices, and is proud to be an inclusive, socially responsible corporation.

The Nuclear division has been delivering custom engineered solutions to the nuclear industry for over a decade, and has been a reliable Tooling partner to Bruce Power since 2011.  As a natural evolution in this ongoing successful relationship, Promation is proud to have established a local presence since 2017 in the Grey-Bruce region by opening an additional office in downtown Port Elgin.

“As an engaged and socially responsible employer in the region, we participate in many regional events and fundraisers, from gala dinners and golf tournaments to Santa Claus parades, free swim and skate days, as well as skating competitions at the Plex.  So, when this opportunity first presented itself, it immediately caught my interest for a number of reasons—the clear tremendous community engagement and involvement, the important cause it was supporting, the opportunity for company team participation and morale development, the active lifestyle nature of the event resonated with our own company values, and the fact it was a very unique event. 

As such, we acted quickly to commit our support…and because we thought it was such a great opportunity, we also invited many of our business friends and partners, who also shared our enthusiasm and quickly signed on! 

I would say the Saugeen Shores Memorial Hospital Foundation’s inaugural 2018 Gran Fondo was a resounding success, and the SMHF team delivered amazing value in their support, promotion, and flawless execution of the event…so naturally, it’s easy to once again support the bigger and better 2019 SMHF Gran Fondo this year!!”

Darryl Spector – President, Promation Nuclear

Executive Director of the Foundation Tracy Murray States, “We are so fortunate to have businesses like Promation in Saugeen Shores who get excited and involved in community events like the Gran Fondo. Not only is Promation a proud sponsor of our event they also have a team of enthusiastic riders returning to take part in the Gran Fondo Lake Huron again this year.”

Bruce Telecom is a brand new Silver sponsor for the 2019 Gran Fondo Lake Huron, presented by Bruce Power!

The world has changed dramatically in one century. Bruce Telecom has never lost sight of why it started in 1911 – to help people connect, to stay intensely local, and to provide exceptional service to customers.

Its rural roots are as authentic as the farmers who came together to start it all. Together they created the Bruce Municipal Telephone System, a co-operative between local community members where trusted partners and opinions mattered. Although the business has evolved over 100 years, the foundation of values they built have remained committed to loyalty, honesty and quality.

Today Bruce Telecom is the region’s local communications leader. Trustworthy home phone, freedom of mobile, access to high-speed Internet, digital television – Bruce Telecom is readily available with the high-quality, secure, reliable technologies that ensure its customers across the region have everything they need to keep on top of it all just about everywhere they are.

Bruce Telecom employees come from the local area, not a large corporate centre, or a far-off place. They enjoy their work because they’re helping neighbours and families directly.

Bruce Telecom has been determined in holding true to one simple promise through over one century of transformations and reinventions: Connecting our Community.

“Bruce Telecom is very proud to support local healthcare. We recognize that hospitals rely on contributions from local businesses and residents to help bridge the gap between government funding and the resources required to meet the needs of the community. Our staff, friends, neighbours and customers benefit from our local hospitals and this is our way of giving back and connecting with the communities we serve in a meaningful way. We were blown away by the success of last year’s inaugural Gran Fondo Lake Huron and are thrilled to be onboard for this year’s event!” Erin Hammond, Sales and Marketing Manager at Bruce Telecom.
