SureWerx, supplier of professional tool, equipment and safety products for workers across North America, has been selected as one of Canada’s Best Managed Gold Standard Winners and represents the fourth consecutive year as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.
Brand name acquisitions, the expansion of product portfolios, continuous and significant investment in its talent and the digitization of its services were key components of SureWerx’s corporate growth strategy, all of which contributed to milestone company achievements in 2018. The 2019 Best Managed program winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues of more than $15 million, demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.
Now in its 26th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the caliber of their management abilities and practices.
Product and company expansion due to a number of acquisitions in the United States and Canada were key accomplishments in SureWerx’s efforts to improve its services and product offerings in the North American safety market. Last year, SureWerx announced acquisitions such as Jackson Safety and WILSON Safety brands, which expanded SureWerx’s reach globally. The company continues to engage customers and employees through digital methods and works to enable all workers to be safe and productive at work by providing exceptional tools, equipment and safety products while ensuring that SureWerx employs excellent safety practices within the organization. SureWerx also continues to be recognized for its work around internal safety practices and advancements, and strives to be the global leader in worker safety and productivity.
“It is a proud moment for the entire SureWerx team to be named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the fourth year in a row and to be awarded as a Gold Standard winner this year,” said Clive Shepherd, general manager, SureWerx Canada. “This award is a true testament to the hard work and dedication from our team to consistently provide unparalleled customer service and industry leading products to the professional workers in Canada.”
“Best Managed companies are elevating Canada’s place on the world-stage,” said Peter Brown, partner, Deloitte Private and co-leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “By broadening their network, and thinking globally, the Best Managed program is honoring these winners for their achievements in Canadian business, and growing influence worldwide.”
2019 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honored at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 17. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group.
