Reko Rising 455!

On August 2, 2017, Reko International Group announced its plans for the construction of a new manufacturing and innovation facility. The building, which will encompass over 40,000 square feet of production space, will be adjacent to its current premises on Silver Creek Industrial Drive in Lakeshore, ON.

Management wanted to name the project, and opened it to all employees to submit suggestions for the project name, and the winner would receive $500. The response was overwhelming. It was difficult to choose just one name, but the name chosen was “Reko Rising” – submitted by Jason Poisson. It was subsequently decided to add the new address to the name, which will be 455. Thanks to everyone who submitted their suggestions, and congratulations to Jason!
