TRURO - A company, celebrating its centennial year, has been recognized by the Town of Truro.
Mayor Bill Mills presented Dave Wilson with a large frame containing photos and a letter from council to recognize Wilson's 100th anniversary. Mills said the town is proud of
the company's "down home way of doing business."
"The contributions to our way of life in Truro, hometown service, along with the great entrepreneurial spirit and commitment to community, that characterizes the Wilson family, is highly valued," the mayor said.
"The Wilson family team has touched so many people, in so many ways, throughout Atlantic Canada, Truro town council could not let 2009 pass without recognizing the 100-year accomplishment of Wilsons and its family companies."
Coun. Raymond Tynes said Wilson makes "quiet contributions" to individuals and community organizations, such as the Colchester Community Workshops. "He and his family are very humble," Tynes said.
Dave was accompanied by his two sisters Jans Henderson and Judy Winter as well as about a dozen of the company's employees. Dave said it is important to the family to have maintained the company in their hometown.
"It's hard to take the town out of the boy," Wilson said. In October, Dave was recognized as Ernst & Young's entrepreneur of the year for Atlantic Canada.
"Given today's markets, companies that don't think ahead risk being eliminated by their competitors," said Joyce Hoeven, Ernst & Young partner and Atlantic director of the entrepreneur of the year awards. "Dave Wilson surpasses the competition because he anticipates future trends and responds quickly to changing consumer needs."
