VANCOUVER, B.C., Nov 22, 2019 — Great Little Box Company Ltd. (GLBC) announced today they have been inducted into the Richmond Chamber of Commerce’s Hall of Fame. Each year the Richmond Chamber recognizes a company at their Business Excellence awards for their long-term contribution to the Richmond Community and GLBC is proud to receive this year’s honour.
GLBC is honored to be named among the amazing companies that have previously been inducted into the Richmond Chamber of Commerce’s Hall of Fame. We are proud to be a member of the Richmond community and appreciate all that the city has to offer from a beautiful river front location to the diverse business community” said Christine Tindall, Vice President of HR at GLBC.
GLBC has a long history of being a member of the Richmond business community and has spent close to 20 years located in Richmond. Their history began in 1982 in a 5000 sq.ft. facility in Burnaby and expanded quickly in 1983 to a 12,000 sq.ft. location on Viscount Street in Richmond. Two years later a move to Olafsen Avenue and a subsequent move to Simpson Road in Richmond saw their sq.ft. increase to 70,000. The fast growing company relocated to Chester Street, Vancouver in 1994 and finally moved back to Richmond in 2006 to build a brand new headquarters and 250,000 sq.ft. manufacturing facility. The river front location and proximity to large business centers was a driving force behind the decision to build their new home in Richmond. Richmond has a great mix of diverse population, growing business community and appealing natural reserves and was close to many of GLBC’s existing customers and employees.
