VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / May 5, 2021 / BE Power Equipment, is a leading manufacturer of pressure washers and outdoor power equipment for professional users across North America. BE has been recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation.

The 2021 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $25 million demonstrating leadership in the areas of strategy, capabilities and innovation, culture and commitment, and financials to achieve sustainable growth. Now in its 28th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies remains one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates the calibre of their management abilities and practices.

BE Power Equipment is a third-generation own company that has grown from a small family-run business established 30-years ago to the largest pressure washer manufacturer in Canada. Qualifying for this prestigious award with our first application speaks volumes to the dedication and ongoing commitment to the industry, BE employees and customers by third-generation owner and CEO, Curtis Braber. Innovation is built into the BE DNA, with a disciplined approach to product development and the use of Lean practices, BE continues to thrive and grow under Curtis’s leadership.

“The past year has posed numerous challenges for Canadian businesses and has touched each and every one in some form or another-including this year’s Best Managed winners,” Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “They should be extremely proud of this designation and use it as a catalyst to continue the work they do each and every day. Their unwavering commitment to their people, and their adaptability amid a year of turmoil, has led them to this achievement and it mustn’t go unnoticed”

Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2021 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include (but are not limited to) 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.

“I am thrilled to receive this award. Being named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies on our 30 Anniversary is fantastic,” says Curtis Braber, Owner and CEO, BE Power Equipment. “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.”

“This year’s Best Managed winners demonstrate the organizational grit required to thrive in these increasingly uncertain times,” said Kari Lockhart, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “By putting their people first, and showing the courage to experiment and take risks, they were able to overcome some of today’s most pressing challenges. This year’s winners were able to succeed because they weren’t afraid to fail.”

2021 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at a virtual gala. The Best Managed virtual symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders. The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group.
