    CAMBRIDGE, ON, April 24 /CNW/ - GeoSmart Energy has become a bright light
in an otherwise dismal economy reinforcing to government and businesses alike
that an investment in the renewable energy industry is a positive step forward
in improving Canada's ailing economy. During a time when many businesses are
struggling to make ends meet, GeoSmart Energy continues to experience rapid
growth with record sales that have positioned the company as one of the
largest non-manufacturing based distributors of geothermal only products in
North America.
    The official opening of its massive new multi-function complex in
Cambridge, Ontario today is a vivid example of just how far the four-year old
company has come. GeoSmart Energy's spacious 40,000 square foot facility is
the new home for the company's national head office, distribution centre and
state-of-the-art geothermal training and testing facility - and more than five
times the size of its previous 6,800 square foot facility.
    The move is indicative of the company's unprecedented growth and a sign
that Canadians are quickly embracing the economic and environmental benefits
of using renewable energy to heat and cool their homes and businesses. Since
2005, GeoSmart Energy has more than quadrupled its staff complement and
developed an impressive network of 300+ dealers across Canada and more than
600 contractors in the United States and Canada.
    "Sustainable energy is a sound investment in the future of this country
and it's rewarding to see so many people electing to invest in a cleaner, more
cost-effective and energy efficient way to heat and cool their homes and
businesses," says Chad Brezynskie, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, GeoSmart
Energy.
    "When it comes to developing green solutions for Ontario, GeoSmart Energy
brings exceptional leadership, energy and skill to the table, and we hope
other companies will take their lead and follow suit," says Kevin Flynn,
Parliamentary Assistant to the Ontario Minister of the Environment, who was on
hand to help the Cambridge company mark its official opening. "Going green is
good business and its opening up new opportunities for a prosperous future."
    Greg Durocher, President and CEO of the Cambridge Chamber of Commerce
couldn't agree more. "GeoSmart Energy's rapid growth sends a strong message to
businesses and entrepreneurs here in Cambridge and across the country that
going green is part of a smart business plan that contributes positively to
the economy."
    GeoSmart Energy CEO Stan Marco's receipt of the Canadian GeoExchange
Coalition's prestigious Prize for National Leadership last fall has further
elevated the GeoSmart Energy brand, making it one of the most recognized
geothermal brands in the marketplace today.
    "Stan Marco was one of this country's first CGC recognized trainers, and
today, his company houses what is arguably one of the most impressive
dedicated geothermal training centres in North America," notes Denis Tanguay,
President and CEO, Canadian GeoExchange Coalition. "Thanks to industry leaders
like GeoSmart Energy, Canada has successfully built a geoexchange
infrastructure that is unique in the world and capable of sustaining the
ongoing development of our industry."
    Further reinforcing GeoSmart Energy's presence in the marketplace are the
strategic partnerships the company has secured with organizations like F.W.
Webb, the largest heating and cooling contractor in the Northeastern United
States; ClimateCare, Canada's leading HVAC cooperative, representing a network
of more than 30 independent residential HVAC professional contracting
companies across Ontario; and Alliance Homes, resulting in the installation of
geothermal technology in the construction of an adult lifestyle community in
southern Ontario.
    The company's solid reputation for product innovation is reflected in the
attractive stainless steel and blue cabinets that house its geothermal units
and in the PE100 green geothermal pipe it uses in installations. "We're
constantly exploring opportunities to further improve existing geothermal
technology," says Stan Marco. "We want our products to be the best they can be
for the dealers who sell them, the contractors who install them, and
ultimately, for the customers who buy them."
    The official opening of GeoSmart Energy's new facility marked a week of
activity that saw the company welcome more than 95 dealers from across Canada
and the United States to its annual Dealer Meeting and Awards Banquet where it
acknowledged the significant role that dealers have had in the company's
success.
    "What makes us gel as a company and as a network of dealers is that we
all share one very important thing in common - we're all passionate about
delivering exceptional customer service," says Stan Marco.
