PrairieCoast Equipment, which operates a location in Chilliwack, has become a dynasty when it comes to winning a prestigious Canadian business award.
For the seventh year in a row, the John Deere dealer located at 44158 Progress Way has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.
The annual awards have existed since 1993 and are sponsored by Canadian Business magazine, Deloitte Private, CIBC, the Smith School of Business and TMX Group.
The awards recognize companies with revenues topping $15-million, and PrairieCoast Equipment’s seven year run puts the company into the ‘Platinum Club.’
“I am very honoured to announce that PCE has received the distinction of being recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies,” said PrairieCoast Equipment CEO Dennis Landis. “We do appreciate the national recognition, but more importantly, we appreciate working as a team at a great company with great customers and a solid future in these uncertain times.”
The Chilliwack location is one of seven in B.C. for PrairieCoast Equipment, which also operates in Langley, Kelowna, Nanaimo, Dawson Creek, Prince George and Kamloops. The company has Alberta locations in Grande Prairie, Fairview and La Crete.
Members of the Jelinski family, one of the founding families of PrairieCoast equipment, will represent the company at the Best Managed awards event in April.
