Brandon Manitoba - Cando Rail Services 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.
Cando has grown from a small rail salvage company in 1978 to an international service provider of various rail services, optimizing the bulk material supply chain for industry and Class 1 railways.
Helping with that success, the company has a unique employee share purchase program that gives employees the opportunity to be part owners in the company.
It is more than just an ownership structure, it is a company culture that breeds success from the ground up.
"Cando is very proud to be one of Canada's Best Managed Companies," says Cando CEO Brian Cornick.
Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel made up of judges from Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and MacKay CEO Forums.
2017 winners of the Canada's Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at the annual Canada's Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on 19 Apr 2017.
