Based out of rural Uxbridge, Ontario, Choko’s day-to-day operations are handled by roughly 20 employees. Don’t let the small-scale set-up fool you, though… Choko’s reach is worldwide. From international manufacturers, to dealers and clients overseas, and of course, the local employees at the home office, Choko has a global appeal. But more than that, Choko has taken on the mantles of social and environmental stewardship.
Choko uses manufacturers in several countries around the world, having been selected after comparative sample product testing, ensuring the best quality products are selected for their customers. Choko supplies automotive dealerships and numerous country retail chains across Canada and the U.S.A. with clothing and accessories. Choko also sells to Snap-On Tools dealers across Canada, the U.S.A., Australia and the U.K. With warehouses in both Canada and the United States, Choko can easily distribute and expand on a global scale.
Choko’s building in Uxbridge is state-of-the-art; the multiuse space boasts a modern gymnasium, providing an important option for work-life balance. Choko also keeps an eye toward environmental leadership, having designed the building with particular responsibilities in mind. Solar panels across the roof of the joint office and warehouse provide electricity, while both the heating and cooling of the building are independently run by a geothermal system.
Choko also contributes to multiple charities and causes, including thousands of dollars worth of merchandise every year to local charities. Choko has also run Christmas toy drives, with the proceeds going to the Stouffville Lions, and they participate every year in the East Ridge Church Christmas Dinner, which serves about 600 people in need.
