Trailer Wizards requalifies for Best Managed Companies program

MISSISSAUGA, Ont.–Trailer Wizards Ltd. announced it has once again been selected as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for excellence in business performance. Trailer Wizards won the Best Managed award in 2014 and requalified for 2015. The Best Managed program recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues of over $10 million, demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieving sustainable growth.

“Best Managed companies embrace innovation, seize opportunities and inspire talent. They really set the bar high,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.

Trailer Wizards said it attributes its continued success to identifying and executing strategic acquisitions successfully as well as strong customer support which has fostered organic growth. Another key success factor lies in investment in technology. Trailer Wizards migrated their customer relationship management (CRM) tool to Salesforce in 2015 to increase visibility across the organization and, ultimately, improve customer service, the company said.

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on overall business performance, including leadership, strategy, core competencies, cross-functional collaboration throughout organization, and talent.

“We are thrilled that Trailer Wizards has once again been selected as a winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program,” Doug Vanderspek, president of Trailer Wizards, explained. “After winning last year, we set the goal of continuing to improve on our customer-friendly trailer solutions and support of our expanding list of customers. With the hard work of our dedicated employees, we have done just that.” Vanderspek continued, “Once again, we thank our customers for their support and our employees for their hard work in accomplishing this achievement.”

2015 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award, along with Requalified, Gold Standard, Gold Requalified winners and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 12, 2016. 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, CIBC, National Post, Smith School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums.
