Best Managed CompaniesSurrey, BC – March 8, 2018 – E.B. Horsman & Son was honoured with Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation once again. The 2018 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth. This year, E.B. Horsman & Son achieved Platinum Club status with the Canada's Best Managed Companies program by retaining its Best Managed designation for nine consecutive years.

Last year was an exciting year for E.B. Horsman & Son with notable accomplishments and company milestones reached. Expansion into Western Canada included a second location in Alberta (Calgary) and the acquisition of Intec Controls which, after a 111 year absence, brings E.B. Horsman & Son back to its Saskatchewan roots. The Platinum Club designation from Canada’s Best Managed Companies speaks to the continued growth that E.B. Horsman & Son experienced throughout 2017.

E.B. Horsman has been supplying products as an independently owned family business since 1900. We have an industry leading distribution model comprised of a centralized head office and distribution center in addition to the largest branch network of twenty-one well placed service locations in BC, Alberta and Saskatchewan. To further enrich the customer experience, engagement and satisfaction, our selling structure includes technical divisions with centralized support groups, trained and focused in the key product segments of data communications, process, automation and controls, projects, and lighting. E.B. Horsman & Son is dedicated to helping our customers grow and prosper by providing a vast array of quality products, solutions and outstanding service through operational excellence.

“Being amongst the best in class requires more than financial performance,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “Achieving sustained growth and strong overall business performance is the result of the combined efforts and commitment of the entire organization.”

Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. 2018 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include a clear strategy and vision, investment in capability and commitment to talent.

“In a business environment where many choices for electrical suppliers exist, the Best Managed designation provides the credentials that we can be a strong partner to our customers. Best Managed is a symbol of quality, reliability, and consistency in the Canadian market place,” said Tim Horsman, President & CEO of E.B. Horsman & Son. “We have consistently found that employees want to work for a Best Managed company which has become part of our culture, similar to “The Electrical Distributor of Choice” and our strategic theme of “Helping Communities Thrive Since 1900”. It is who we are and what we strive to do.”

“Companies that earn Platinum Club status, exemplify exceptional vision and leadership and a sustained commitment to growth and innovation,” said Dino Medves, Senior Vice President and Head, CIBC Commercial Banking. “CIBC is proud to recognize these and all of the 2018 Canada’s Best Managed Companies as leaders in their industries.”

The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, TMX Group and MacKay CEO Forums.
