Canadian Business and Profit has ranked an Abbotsford business among the top 500 fastest growing companies in the nation.
Valley Carriers ranked 398th in the 29th annual list. Published in the October issue of Maclean’s magazine and at CanadianBusiness.com, the Profit 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth.
Valley Carriers made the list with five-year revenue growth of 120 per cent.
“It is never easy to earn a spot on the Profit 500, but this year’s applicant pool was the most competitive yet,” said Deborah Aarts, Profit 500 program manager.
“This year’s winners demonstrate the resilience, innovation and sheer management smarts it takes to build a thriving business today. Canada – and the world – needs more entrepreneurial success stories like these.”
“Our family is honoured to have our business on the Profit 500 ranking,” said Valley Carriers CEO Travis Klassen. “We’ve worked with intention to drive change and generate growth over the past few years.”
Valley Carriers was also listed No. 68 on Business in Vancouver’s list of fastest growing companies in B.C. and employs more than 100 people in their operations based out of Abbotsford, Delta and Merritt.
The company’s fleet of trucks transports woods residuals such as sawdust, bark mulch and hog fuel for use in agriculture, landscaping and the pulp and paper industry.
They also offer supplies to many of the smaller landscape centres in the Lower Mainland.
