Winner for a second consecutive year
Coteau-du-Lac (Quebec), March 9, 2017 – For the second year in a row, the transportation company C.A.T. Inc. in Coteau-du-Lac, Montérégie, was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2017 because of its exceptional business performance and its sense of innovation. The Best Managed program recognizes Canadian owned and managed companies that demonstrate strategy, competence and commitment to achieving sustainable growth.
“In 2016, we have built on our momentum, while continuing to innovate. We have opened a business office in Dallas, Texas, and another one in Laval, Quebec, in January 2016. C.A.T. Global now accounts for 50% of our total annual revenue,” said Daniel Goyette, President. “In addition, we have completely revamped our fleet of trailers. They are now equipped with side skirts, wide-band tires, a tire inflation system and eco-flaps.” This is another step towards converting the entire fleet to green energy.
The environment is very important to the people of C.A.T. “Our trucks are now equipped with the ISAAC solution, a telematics and telemetry tool that allows us to coach our driver in real time and thus see an improvement in fuel economy performance,” explained Daniel Goyette.
On January 1, in keeping with our President’s vision established in 2015 in his 2020 strategic plan, C.A.T. Inc. acquired Group Express Inc. “A new expertise in dedicated service that will enable us to offer this new service to our customers, with our natural gas trucks,” he added.
A prestigious title
Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing the merits of Canadian owned and managed companies that have adopted world-class business practices and have created value in innovative ways. Nominations are evaluated by an independent jury that evaluates their overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies, cross-functional collaboration across the entire organization, and talent.
“I would like to acknowledge all the efforts of C.A.T. Transport. It takes sustained efforts from the entire team to build a common vision, create value for stakeholders and excel in the global economy to achieve that level of success,” said Yan Jubinville of Deloitte.
The new winners of the Best Managed program in 2017, re-qualified winners, Gold Standard winners and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala, which will be held in Toronto on April 19, 2017. That same day, the Best Managed symposium will address the key business issues that drive the success of today’s business leaders.
