The Ionic Technology Group received national recognition June 9 and was named one of the recipients of the Canadian Business Excellence Awards for Private Businesses.
The award recognizes businesses that demonstrate a strategic approach to improving performance, achieving goals, and promoting a healthy work environment.
“My late husband, Steve Matusch, started Ionic Engineering in our home garage,” Christina Visser, CEO of the Ionic Technology Group, said in a press release. “His hard work and vision got us started, but it was the combined hard work and dedication of the entire Ionic team that transformed the organization into the internationally respected group of companies that we are today. I want to thank all of them, as well as our many clients and supporters over the years. Steve would be proud to see how we’ve carried on, and indeed added to his legacy, even through a pandemic. Today, we are honoured to receive the prestigious CBEA award.”
CBEA awards were presented during a virtual ceremony.
“It’s truly an honour to receive this award, I want to highlight the efforts of our employees throughout the pandemic,” said Andre Dumais, president of Ionic Mechatronics. “They’ve been managing their personal life with their work commitments, it’s not an easy task. Our team retained their productivity throughout these challenging times and all companies in our group have seen an increase in demand for our services.”
Founded in Sudbury in 1999, the Ionic Technology Group is composed of six technology companies: Ionic Mechatronics, Ionic Automation, Variant Mining Technologies, Black Rock Engineering, Ionic Tecnologias and Synaptic Technologies.
