Bux-Mont Awards wins Business Achievement Award

The family here at Bux-Mont Awards was proud to not only attend the annual Pennridge Chamber of Commerce Autumn Gala this past Saturday, September the 27, but also to be able to see our Team Leader, owner Greg Bencsik receive this years Business Achievement Award.

We have made these awards for the last 10 plus years and have had the opportunity to produce with honor and great care the prestigious awards that some amazing individuals and businesses have recieved. Greg accepted the award with great pride knowing that his name was put in the records with the other previous winners.

Greg has led Bux-Mont Awards to double digit revenue growth that is as much an indication of the great care and responsibility that goes into making the numerious awards for those in the Bucks and Montgomery Counties as it is vindication for the amount of hard work and great care taken in responding to his many customers needs.

Bencsik has single handedly taken this company from a home based start up to what it is today; a robust recognition business with two locations that not only focuses on corporate recognition and awards, but also promotional recognition, signage and badges, donor recognition and team apparel. Who knew recognition was associated with so many different needs of a vast number of companies and organizations. Greg led the team here to double digit revenue growth in 4 of the previous 5 years, with only the expansion into the Montgomery County providing a break from this growth.

This revenue growth is not whats important to us and not why we won the award; this Award was won because, through enabling our customers to better recognize achievements, we are helping our community grow and thrive. Recognition of achievements is important, so important to the people who receive it that it is a driver of economic development. We help our customers recognize achievements effectively because it is important to us.

Whether it's helping your kids stay involved in youth sports, helping your staff feel appreciated, or saying thank you to your teachers retiring, we like to help you do it better. Our staff knows how to effectively give recognition in these ways and more, and we like to help you do it better. We don't just make recognition products, we make recognition products better. Greg deserved this years Business Achievement Award not for where we have been, but for where we help you go.

If any of you would like to attend follow the link to sign up. I will be posting a follow up from the seminar on our blog after the show, so you can look forward to getting some ideas.
The 2008 Paralympic Games are underway in Beijing, China. A list of the sports and a background of the games is available here. This year there will be an unprecedented amount of coverage thanks to www.universalsports.com. There will be webcasts of full games on the website while they will have a daily recap show on their HD television channel.


cnnsi.com has some photos from the games. There is a little more notoriety surrounding Oscar Pistorius a single leg amputee who made a run at the Olympic games in track. There was a lot of discussion whether he should be permitted to compete in the Olympic games because his prosthetic leg enabled him to run just as fast using less energy than a real leg. In the end the discussion was moot as he did not qualify for the games.
