More recently the company added equipment allowing permit bulk rail tanker receiving and shipping, achieved of BRC Certification (the first oil processor in Canada to do so) and added a full line of Halal Certified vegetable oils.

This acquisition came up with multiple transformational changes, both at business level and at its interaction with IT.  BBSI needed a professional IT company to support their two offices while optimizing resources and employees.
