Good News for our Whole Team
The Best Managed Companies program recognizes companies owned and operated by Canadians and which show strategy, competence and engagement to reach sustainable growth.
“C.A.T. was founded in 1978, and what has set us apart since then is our passion for innovation. Proof of this is our most recent achievement, in 2015, when we became the first Canadian company to use trucks fuelled by compressed natural gas (CNG). We also built the first public CNG fuelling station on our own property, in collaboration with Gaz Métro and Gain Clean Fuel. In addition to serving the general public, this allowed us to convert a portion of our fleet and today, approximately one third of our 325 trucks use natural gas,” said Daniel Goyette, the company’s President.
“I wish to thank each and every one of you for your dedication, your conscientiousness and your professionalism. Without the contribution of every member of our team, this honour would not have been bestowed upon us.”
A Prestigious Title
Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in Canadian-owned and managed companies having adopted world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Nominations are judged by an independent jury which evaluates their global business performance, their leadership, their strategy, their core competencies and the level of inter-functional collaboration within the organization and between skills.
“Having received this title is a true pleasure. It is also a proof that whatever we do, we do it well. For example, we continue to improve to better serve our clients with our team of over 400 drivers on the NAFTA territory,” adds the President.
Winners of the Best Managed Companies in 2015, Requalified Winners, Gold Standard Winners, Gold Standard Requalified Winners and members of the Platinum Club will be honoured at the Best Managed Companies annual gala, to be held in Toronto on April 12, 2016. On that same day, the Best Managed Symposium will look at all-encompassing business questions at the base of the success attained by today’s business managers. The Best Managed Companies program is sponsored by Deloitte, the CIBC, the National Post, La Presse, the Smith School of Business and Mackay CEO Forums.
