Absorbent Products Ltd. (APL) has been selected as one of the Top 25 Exporters in British Columbia and is a one of 3 finalists for the Primary Products and Services Sector Award.
This award is given jointly by the Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME) and the Ministry of Small Business, Technology and Economic Development. The award is given to reward British Columbia’s most successful and innovative exporters and promote those companies selected as corporate role models in order to stimulate greater involvement in exporting amongst the province’s business community. The awards also help to develop community awareness of exporting to the province’s economic future.
“We are very proud to be selected as one of the Top 25 Exporting Companies in British Columbia. With all the companies in BC to choose from, to be chosen as one of the top 25 exporters is a real honour,” says Peter Aylen, President of Absorbent Products Ltd. “We export our products to Europe, the middle east and throughout the United States.”
APL produces industrial minerals from 2 mines in British Columbia and processes the material into products you would see on your store shelf. “We produce many different products from cat litter to industrial absorbents to feed additives and binders for the agriculture industry to natural insecticides and other applications as well. We process the materials at our plant in Kamloops and export them to various countries and other parts of Canada”, says Aylen. “We have a very high value added ratio since we take the material from its raw state, process it and package it for retail sale”.
On May 4, 2009, APL won the MINING AND SUSTAINABILITY AWARD, presented the Ministry of Energy Mines and Resources and the mining Association of British Columbia. This award is one of the most prestigious awards given in the British Columbia Mining Industry. It seeks to recognize companies, organizations and individuals that demonstrate a commitment to advancing and promoting sustainable development in the mining sector.
“We take great pride in the environmental integrity of our operations and our products. Many of our products are listed for use in organic production by the Organic Material Review Institute,” says Aylen. “We always seek to reduce our use of resources, whether they are material mined, electricity, natural gas or other resources. We have reduced our use of natural gas and electricity per tonne over the past 5 years and we use about 98% of the material that is transported from the mines to the processing facility,” says Aylen
