Spartan Controls Named One of Canada's Best Managed Companies for 16th Consecutive Year

March 10, 2017

CALGARY, ALBERTA – Spartan Controls Ltd. is pleased to announce we have been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2016 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 our first award in 2001, Spartan Controls has been recognized for 16 consecutive years with this honour, the last ten years as a member of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Platinum Club, a recognition limited to those who have been awarded Best Managed status for seven consecutive years or more.

“Best Managed Platinum winners have exceptional insights and knowledge into business management practices. They are an inspiration and really take their game to a new level,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. 

“Companies that earn Platinum Club status, by retaining their Best Managed status for seven years or more, exemplify exceptional vision and leadership and a sustained commitment to growth and innovation,” said Jon Hountalas, Executive Vice President, Business and Corporate Banking, CIBC.

Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business award 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.

”The recognition is once again very much appreciated. We have been through an exceptionally tough market downturn but believe staying true to our values and adapting to the changes needed to serve the new customer value is key to continuing to succeed,” said Grant Wilde, President of Spartan Controls. “We will continue to find ways to innovate and adapt to ensure we thrive.”

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 our business practices. A high regard is held for the Best Managed Companies program, and Spartan congratulates all the winners, with an extra “hats off” to those fellow companies who share the Platinum status.
