Ste-Sophie, Québec — June 13, 2011 — Lecavalier Auto Parts won the “Phénix de l’environnement” award on June 9. The contest is the highest recognition for know-how in environmental protection and applications of sustainable development in Québec. Éric St-Pierre, human resources manager at Lecavalaier, was on-hand at the Salon Rouge de L’Assemblée Nationale du Québec to receive the award.
Lecavalier won for its Industrial Visit Program, which teaches students, professors, and repair industry professionals how worthy it is to use recycled parts as an ecological habit.
“This is wonderful news because this will follow us for years and years because this is the highest recognition for the environment in Quebec,” Veronique Patry of Lecavalier Auto Parts told Canadian Auto Recyclers. “We are full of excitement and we will publish this logo of the Phoenix award on our website to let people know that it is a good choice to use used parts when you need to repair your vehicle.”
Patry said the award is not only beneficial for Lecavalier but for the entire auto recycling industry because it will inform the public, particulary in Quebec, of the environment benefits of using recycled parts.
