Firm client Atrex Energy, Inc. received approval from a Canadian standards group for its remote power generators, which are used in applications for the oil and gas industry. This is the first-ever certification from the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) under its new FC-1 Standard for its high efficiency and fuel flexible ARP units. CSA certification is a rigorous standard of safety, and as such recognizes the safety and reliability of the technology in Atrix’s remote power generators. Many customers require equipment to have the certification, making this a major achievement for Atrex.

Atrex is based in Walpole, MA and its products offer low carbon, environmental solutions for essential off-grid power needs. To read more about the certification and Atrex’s remote power generators, read the full article featured in the latest edition of North American Oil & Gas Pipelines.

MBBP’s client Officeworks, an office furniture dealership and consulting firm based in Boston, is expanding into the New York City office furniture market with current CEO Mark Loughlin and newly hired Principal David Quinn at the helm. Loughlin purchased the company in 2010, and sales began to skyrocket with growth being 10x what it had previously been within five years. Loughlin attributes the company’s success to exceptional customer service and a dynamic working environment that is conducive to new ideas and innovation.

By placing the utmost importance on the employees, Loughlin believes that the company is laying a strong foundation upon which to continue to grow. With Officeworks being one of two authorized dealers of Teknion furniture within the New York City market, this will give the company an edge as they settle into their new environment. However, being that Officeworks was named Teknion Dealer of the Year due to its dominating success and astounding sales growth, it would seem they have had their edge for quite some time, and will continue to prove it in the Big Apple. Congratulations to Officeworks!
