Description


First and foremost, Bustard's is a family business -- it was built this way, and continues to operate this way. Bustard family members continue to work at our Wa

terloo and Listowel locations. Our philosophy has always been to have fun and support one another while providing the best possible service to our customers.

 

Congratulations to Bustard Chyrsler for being nominated in the 2013 Business Excellence Awards-Business of the Year- under 20 employees. The Chamber is pleased to be able to share their company profile.

 

When Bustard Chrysler opened in Listowel in 2009 their intention was to become a big part of this community; not just to sell cars. They encouraged everyone at Bustard to participate in local events to support numerous charities and clubs.  Their employees are encouraged to belong to civic groups, sports organizations and church groups within the community. In fact, Bustard will cover dues and sponsor events within those groups to keep our people involved in the community.

 

Bustard is sure that their steady growth in sales is directly related to their involvement in the community. Bustard was one of the first Communities of Characters recognized business in North Perth and still employ a member of the Community Living social program.

 

Some of the local events they are involved with include:

  • Fill the Ram event, in conjunction with the Salvation Army, Bustard Staff work to fill a Ram with food and necessities for families in North Perth. This has been very successful; we have been able to fill the back of at least 5 trucks in the past year.
  • Involved wit
  • h raising funds to help underprivileged families of North Perth.
  • Provided f
    inancial support to the Heart and Stroke Association.
  • Provided financial support to the Cancer society.
  • Supplied vehicles for Santa Claus parade, Salvation Army, Heart and Stroke and others.
  • Supported family day in Listowel at the park with prizes for kids.
  • Sponsor of the Listowel Cyclone Minor Hockey which was looking to increase enrollment and provide free hockey for the young kids of this community. Their support has helped over 52 kids play hockey.

Investing in their team is another way they support the community.  Everyone of their 18 staff members represents Bustards in the community.  Bustard has been a supporter and involved with the high school co

-op program since they arrived providing training on the job. They have since hired a few of those students to fill summer and permanent positions after graduation. Their management team is frequently brought together to discuss b

est practices in the industry as well as best practices in the dealership. They spent thousands of dollars bringing various training processes to thier employee’s in North Perth including health and safety, skilled trades and general employment.

Along with employment, they have brought the facility up-to-date with the leading technology required to fix vehicles of today and service their clients better.  As a result, when it comes to vehicles, they diagnose problems the first time and get thier customers back on the road quickly. Bustards continuously look for ways to exceed customers’ expectations from the moment they walk in to the time they leave with their vehicle.

 

 

Bustard has been a leader in North Perth in environmental and recycling efforts. The green initiatives include recycling all fluids, metals, batteries, tires and cardboard products used in our day to day operations. The fluid recovery and recycling programs alone remove approximately 94 tonnes of greenhouse gases annually.  With these initiatives, they have decreased waste by 70%.

 

The Bustard team has also worked with other dealerships to revive Listowel Car City, an organization working to promote business in Listowel and North Perth. Collectively, they can bring many visitors to Listowel and area that support local business. Bustard is always looking for innovative ways to be involved and add to the already high quality of life in North Perth.
