Trailer Wizards Ltd. was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2014 for excellence in business performance. Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums, the Best Managed award recognizes Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million for sustained growth, financial performance, management practices and the efforts of the entire organization.

“I would like to congratulate Trailer Wizards and its entire workforce. Achieving this standard of excellence takes a united effort from a dedicated team,” said Mike Runia, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program and Ontario Managing Partner, Deloitte.

Trailer Wizards Ltd. specializes in commercial trailer rental, leasing, sales, storage, parts and maintenance solutions. Their first trailer was rented in 1963 and, in 2013, Trailer Wizards Ltd. celebrated their 50 anniversary. Today, the organization has over 20,000 trailers, 25 locations and over 400 employees. Trailer Wizards Ltd. has changed the industry by looking beyond the trailer to see how they can work in partnership with their customers. Their goal is to lower customers’ total operating costs while keeping safe and well-maintained fleets on the road and returning revenue.

Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs that recognizes Canadian companies that have implemented world-class business practices and created value in innovative ways. Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel on how they address various business challenges, including new technologies, globalization, brand management, leadership, leveraging and developing core competencies, designing information systems, and hiring the right talent to facilitate growth.

"Trailer Wizards is delighted to be recognized as a 2014 winner of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program," Doug Vanderspek, President of Trailer Wizards, explained. "This achievement recognizes the hard work our employees have put in over the fifty years we've been in business." Vanderspek continued, "We'd like to thank all of our customers and employees who have been along with us on the journey to reach this milestone."

“Today’s market place is not just about financial performance; it is also about the investment in the people. Trailer Wizards invests in their team to build up a strong and stable company. Best Managed companies are home grown companies making smart investments to achieve above average returns,” says Peter Brown, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies Program and Senior Practice Partner, Deloitte.

2014 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award, along with the Gold Standard winners, Requalified and Platinum Club members will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on March 31, 2015. On the same date, the symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
