Our greatest reward has been the growth and the sustainability of our business since its inception, which confirms that we are providing an essential service. Next to that are the valuable referrals that we acquire from our satisfied clients. Thirdly is the recognition that we receive from our peers and from the industries that we serve, as seen below.

In 2010, Maaten won the Outstanding Business Achievement Award for Business of the Year - Small Business. This award, presented by the Sarnia Chamber of Commerce, recognizes a small business for overall business excellence. Peter Aarssen, Regional Director for Freedom 55 Financial - Southwestern Ontario Financial Centre says, "As a peer member and OBA judge, I can confidently say your award is most deserved. Our local Chamber and Sarnia/Lambton are well served and helped by your membership and contribution to our great community."

Maaten Construction is an authorized builder for Robertson Building Systems, the supplier of our pre-engineered buildings. In 2002, Robertson instituted a new recognition vehicle called the Inukshuk Award. The qualifications for this award were excellence in order quality, product knowledge, communications, consistent volume and sales & marketing. The award was not necessarily targeted at the builder with the highest volume, but the builder who projected outstanding performance against the qualifying attributes. Maaten Construction Limited was the first recipient of this award from a pool of over 100 authorized dealer builders across Canada. This recognition from one of Maaten's largest suppliers speaks to the corporate culture and the "way of doing business" that has characterized the success of our company's business operations.
