Ecoleader: EQ Bank

Handmade amplifier
-November 2017-

An amplifier to propel a vision  !

Mandate

EQ bank was looking for a cool product to give at their Employee Retreat. After brainstorming on different products to express their mission, the team chose our new sound amplifier. We proposed the amplifier as a symbol of expression and gathering people around the music and so around their vision.

The positive impacts of our amplifiers

Economic spinoffs – One of our most important commitments and values ​​is to design local products. For this project, we worked with the Montreal designers Allstudio. The concrete is poured into a mould in our studio in Montreal as well as the cutting and engraving of the wood. That means 5 local businesses were involved in the creation process for this product.

Environmental impacts – Like we said, the manufacturers are located in Montreal and the production is local. Therefore the amplifiers only traveled from Montreal to Toronto –  meaning less than 350 miles. So not much greenhouse gas was produced overall — that’s a win for the company!

Social benefits – By handing out a locally made product, EQ Bank is putting the spotlight on local products and showing off the creativity of Canadian designers. The company is therefore positioning itself to promote local talent.

EQ Bank – A role model for our Ecoleaders

EQ Bank can see the impact it makes by choosing a local supplier: it encourages local creativity, minimizes environmental impacts and supports jobs in the country. This strategy is in line with its mission and overall vision.
