"I never had the chance to work at the new facilities and my memories are of backing boats down the hill at Bolton Street (and seeing the occasional boat or truck backing itself down the hill).  In my 8 years with Buckeye, I got to see a business that progressed from selling 16 foot boats, to 23 footers and up to 28 footers.  I worked closely with Mr. Poole and he always liked things to be done right and always treated people fairly (both customers and staff).  These two simple ingredients are at the core of any successful enterprise, and I expect continue to be his enduring legacy.  I'd argue the third ingredient to a successful business is passion and drive.  These clearly exist in Buckeye. You are among the most caring, generous people I've ever met.  This caring spirit is rich in Buckeye and results in having employees who feel valued and customers who know that they are much more that just a business transaction.  Both of these are critical to any successful enterprise will serve you well for the next 60 years. The opportunity you provided and experience I gained, continue to serve me well to this day." -Steve "Shadow" Taylor, Senior Vice President Meat & Seafood at Loblaw Co. Ltd, Past Employee.
