Two Hamilton-area companies were among five recognized by Horizon Utilities for energy conservation initiatives.

Graybar Canada in Hamilton and Agri-Plastics in Stoney Creek were presented Wednesday with Energy Savings Champions Awards by Horizon president and CEO Max Cananzi during a luncheon.

Graybar was presented with an award for contractor participation and Agri-Plastics won the energy savings award.

Graybar, located on Morley Street, is a wholesale distributor for items from various manufacturers of automation and electrical products. It is based in Halifax and operates more than 30 locations across Canada.

Agri-Plastics is located on Arvin Avenue and builds hutches and housing units for calves. It is owned by a third-generation dairy family and its headquarters is in Grassie in West Lincoln.

The annual award also recognized Mark’s (formerly Mark’s Work Wearhouse) for demand reduction and Wilson Blanchard and Johnson Controls for most innovative project. All three businesses are located in St. Catharines.
