March 10, 2016

CALGARY, ALBERTA - Spartan Controls Ltd. has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2015 for excellence in business performance. The Best Managed program recognizes Canadian owned and managed companies for demonstrating strategy, capability and a commitment to achieve sustainable growth.

Since winning its first award in 2001, Spartan Controls has been recognized for 15 consecutive years with this honour, the last nine years as a member of Canada’s Best Managed Platinum Club, a recognition limited to companies who have been Best Managed companies for six consecutive years or more.

“Best Managed Platinum winners are amongst the elite Canadian-owned and managed companies,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.

“They are true leaders in the Canadian marketplace,” added Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice-President, Business and Corporate Banking, CIBC. “They exemplify strong vision and leadership, a sustained commitment to growth and innovation, and a dedication to their values.”

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

”Being recognized by such a highly regarded and competitive program over such a long term period is a much appreciated testament to the strengths of our organization and the dedication of Spartans to relentlessly create and sustain value our customers want,” said Mike Begin, CEO of Spartan Controls. “In these challenging times, it is even more important to consistently deliver exceptional customer experiences, innovation and support of the culture and values that have helped us earn this prestigious recognition for 15 years.”

Focused on solutions and service that leverage technical innovation and deliver high value to our customers, Spartan Controls continues to strive for excellence and leadership in all areas of its business practices. A high regard is held for the Best Managed Companies program, and congratulations to the winners, with an extra “hats off” to those fellow companies who share in Platinum status recognition.
