Manderley Turf Products is once again recognized for excellence in business performance as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies
Toronto, ON – March 9, 2017 – Manderley Turf Products was honoured with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2017 Best Managed program recognizes the best-in-class of Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth. This marks the sixth consecutive year that Manderley has earned this distinction, having achieved Gold Standard status since 2014.
“Best Managed companies deserve recognition for their entrepreneurial approach to excelling in an uncertain economic climate. They truly bring out the best in Canadian business leadership,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program.
Established in 1993, 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.
