EDMONTON, AB – [May 9, 2023] – PRIMED Medical Products (PRIMED) is honoured to be among "Canada's Best Managed Companies" for the sixth year in a row. 2023 also marks the third year the Edmonton-based organization has received the additional “Gold Standard Winner” accolades, awarded to organizations who have successfully maintained "Best Managed" status for over three consecutive years.
Celebrating its 30th anniversary, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program awards excellence in private Canadian-owned companies with $50 million or greater revenues. To attain the designation, companies are evaluated on their leadership in the areas of strategy, culture and commitment, capabilities, and innovation, governance and financial performance.
"We are incredibly proud and excited to be recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies,” comments David Welsh, president and CEO of PRIMED Medical Products. “This award is a testament to our entire team's hard work, dedication, and innovation, and we are honoured to be among such a distinguished group of companies. We will continue striving for excellence and look forward to building on this achievement in the future."
Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing innovative and world‑class businesses. Every year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies compete for this designation in a rigorous and independent evaluation process. Applicants are evaluated by an independent panel of judges with representation from program sponsors and special guests.
“We are known throughout the industry as that company with a special sense of energy and excitement,” says Welsh. “Our people are highly committed, super engaged, and there’s just this amazing energy level.” Regularly asked by both competitors and friends about the secret to PRIMED’s success. David says it comes down to one main element: the company culture.
The 2023 cohort of Best Managed companies share common themes such as having a people-centric culture, targeting effective ESG strategies, and accelerating operational digitization.
“It has become increasingly important for businesses to foster collaborative workplaces where employees are empowered to make valuable contributions to their organizations,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “This year’s Best Managed winners, including PRIMED Medical Products, embrace a people-first mentality, enabling employees to cultivate important capabilities and integrating diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives into their core strategy. By prioritizing employee well-being and championing professional development, these companies are harnessing their talent pool’s fullest potential and in a stronger position to attract the talents needed to embrace the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.”
