An Abbotsford company has been recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation.
BE Power Equipment – which manufactures pressure washers and outdoor power equipment for professional users – will be honoured with the award during a virtual gala.
Now in its 28th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains one of the country’s leading business award programs recognizing Canadian-owned and -managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices.
Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel composed of representatives from program sponsors as well as special guest judges.
The 2021 Best Managed companies share characteristics such as enabling a remote workforce, making employee health a top priority, acting with an increased sense of purpose and social responsibility, and a significantly heightened focus on cash flow.
BE Power Equipment, located on Progressive Way in Abbotsford, is a third-generation company that has grown from a small family-run business established 30 years ago to the largest pressure washer manufacturer in Canada.
Owner and CEO is Curtis Braber.
“I am thrilled to receive this award. Being named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies on our 30th anniversary is fantastic,” he said.
“I am very proud of the entire team. BE’s mission is to deliver high-quality outdoor equipment fast and on time, and our team certainly goes above and beyond to ensure we remain focused on strategies set to achieve this.”
The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group. Hundreds of companies compete for the designation each year.
