KITCHENER — A business with out-of-this world aspirations was one of the companies honoured by the Greater Kitchener Waterloo Chamber of Commerce on Thursday night.

Ontario Drive & Gear in New Hamburg received the Business of the Year Award for companies with more than 50 employees at the chamber's Business Excellence Awards dinner at Bingemans.

The company, founded in 1962 and now employing 240 people, is known for its Argo all-terrain vehicle. It also has developed a rover that it hopes will one day traverse the moon or Mars. It is undertaking a 30,000-square-foot expansion because of growing interest in terrestrial versions of the rover.

Eleven other awards were presented at the dinner.
