Wednesday, Aug. 22, was a big night for Langley-based company Fastik and for its president, Brad Malchuk.

That evening, B.C. Senator Yonah Martin, deputy leader of the Official Opposition in the Senate, was in attendance at Fastik in Langley, to help celebrate the company’s achievement of having surpassed $10 million in annual sales.

According to Fastik’s website, the business aims to simplify and enhance market communications with high quality printing and packaging.

Beyond providing printing and packaging services throughout North America, the company is “trying to do as much as we can to make the world a better place,” the website states.

A belief that “social responsibility is good business” is reflected in its practices. These include “treading lightly on the earth,” creating and promoting products that lower the environmental impact of their customers and supporting charitable work at home and abroad by giving a minimum 10 per cent of net profits to charitable organizations in Canada and overseas.

Among the organizations supported by Fastik is Opportunity International, a company that helps families in need generate monthly income, both right away and for years to come.

At Wednesday evening’s ceremony, Malchuk’s charitable efforts were acknowledged along with the achievement of his business.

“Brad Malchuk was recognized tonight for the success of Fastik, a business that he has grown from the ground up,” wrote Doris Olafsen of Opportunity International.

“He was also celebrated for his personal and corporate philanthropy and partnership over the past few years with both Opportunity International Canada and the Wellspring Foundation.

“Canadian Senator Yonah Martin paid tribute to his business and philanthropic accomplishments and also pinned him with the Special Service Award for his service in the Canadian Army and his work with Korean veterans.”
