Fusion Homes First Builder in History to Win Tarion Ontario Builder of the Year Three Times in Low-Rise Category

GUELPH, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 18, 2012) - For the third time, Fusion Homes has been named by Tarion Warranty Corporation as the winner of the prestigious Award of Excellence - Ontario Builder of the Year. This award recognizes home builders in Ontario based solely on their customer service delivery. Fusion Homes is the only builder in history to win this award three times in the low-rise division.

"Our team has a relentless focus on providing the highest level of customer service and this award is a testament to our dedication to clients," says Fusion Homes President Lee Piccoli. "This award is determined by home buyers and is therefore the most highly-valued award for our industry."

In its 12th year of operation, this is the fifth time Fusion Homes has been recognized by the Tarion Warranty Corporation. In 2008 and 2010, the company won the Tarion Award of Excellence - Ontario Builder of the Year in the Large-Volume Builder and Medium-Volume Builder categories respectively. The builder was also a finalist in 2005 and 2011.

"Customer service is the most important part of the Fusion Homes experience. From the time one of our clients walks through the door of one of our sales centres, through the construction process and after move-in, customer satisfaction remains our highest priority," says Piccoli. "The support of all our industry partners, including land developers, trades, suppliers and financial institutions, plays a huge role in our success. The dedication of these team members is the reason we have never missed a closing date and why we continue to exceed industry standards."

The Tarion award for Fusion Homes comes on the heels of the company being recognized as number 13 on the list of Canada's 50 Best Small and Medium Employers for 2012, an acknowledgement that was determined by the company's employees.

"To be recognized not only as Ontario's top builder for customer satisfaction, but to also have our employees say they are excited, inspired and proud to come to work for Fusion Homes every day is an unbelievable accomplishment," Piccoli says. "These awards go hand in hand; without a dedicated and engaged team that is committed to our clients, we don't win Tarion's highest honour."

To determine the award recipients, a Harris Decima and Crunch Research survey was sent to 45,000 Ontario homeowners who took possession of a new home between October 1, 2010 and September 30, 2011.

"The Tarion Awards of Excellence recognizes builders that stand behind their construction and deliver excellent customer service," says Howard Bogach, Tarion President and CEO. "The award recipients, along with the 16 other finalists, raise the bar in terms of setting the standards for providing Ontarians with a positive new home buying experience."
