BIZ VOICE: C-K loses a business leader

Scott Heuvelmans

Chatham-Kent is a little worse off with the passing of Scott Heuvelmans recently.

Heuvelmans, who ran Heuvelmans Chev-Buick-GMC in Chatham, among other dealerships, passed away Sept. 24.

Sadly, he died only a few months after his father, Theo, passed.

The local business community will miss Heuvelmans, as will his family.

The Heuvelmans teamed up to plant more than 7,000 trees and created a wetland/prairie habitat on family properties, through the Lower Thames Valley Conservation Authority and Ducks Unlimited.

Uride celebrates 5 years in C-K

Uride, the local ridesharing company, has marked its fifth anniversary in Chatham-Kent today.

“In the last 5 years, we’ve been more than just a mode of transportation. We’ve been a part of workdays, hospital visits (even an expectant mother!), shopping trips, weddings, and most importantly, a safe ride home – a way to prevent impaired driving in the community,” regional manager Vince Scott said in a media release.

Beyond rides, Uride is committed to giving back to the community. Through initiatives like their Good Deeds program, they aim to make a difference in the lives of Chatham-Kent residents.

They are also always open to collaborations, be it event sponsorships or business partnerships, to further enrich the bond with the community and contribute to its growth.
