Equipment Sales & Service Limited (ESS) has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the 12th consecutive year.

The company was recognized for its industry-leading performance, its global business practices, and its sustained growth.

“On behalf of all the people at Equipment Sales & Service, I wish to express our delight at being chosen to be among Canada’s Best Managed Companies again this year,” said Morgan Cronin, President of Equipment Sales & Service Limited.

“This marks the 12th consecutive time we have qualified for this award. It is a tribute to the work and dedication of everyone at ESS. I wish to take this opportunity to recognise and thank all who got us here. Thank you.”

Canada’s Best Managed Companies program awards excellence in private Canadian-owned companies. To attain the designation, companies are evaluated on their leadership in the areas of strategy, culture, commitment, capabilities, innovation, governance, and financial performance.

Now in its 30th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation. Applicants are evaluated by an independent panel of judges with representation from program sponsors and special guests.

The 2023 cohort of Best Managed companies shares common themes such as having a people-centric culture, targeting effective ESG strategies, and accelerating operational digitization.

“The Best Managed Company award program and the rigor required to become designated have become ingrained within our entire company and therefore have become part of its culture,” said Peter M Willis, Executive Co-Chairman of Equipment Sales & Service Limited.

“Collaboration and teamwork amongst our dedicated, well trained, experienced employees, across all departments, are hallmarks of our operations with specific focus on serving our customer base in the most efficient and proficient ways possible. We congratulate all our colleagues for enabling our company to once again be named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.”

Equipment Sales & Service was founded in 1946 and is one of Canada’s oldest and most established equipment companies. The private company is now in its third generation of family ownership.
