PRIMED joins elite ranks as Platinum Club Member for Canada's Best Managed Companies

EDMONTON, AB - [May 14, 2024] - PRIMED Medical Products (PRIMED) achieved Platinum Club status with Canada's Best Managed Companies program by retaining its Best Managed designation for seven consecutive years. This achievement marks a significant milestone in the company's history, underscoring PRIMED's commitment to excellence and innovation in the healthcare industry.

"At PRIMED, we are thrilled and honoured to join the ranks of Canada's Best Managed Companies' Platinum Club members," remarked David Welsh, CEO of PRIMED Medical Products. "This achievement is a testament to the hard work, dedication, and passion of our entire team. We are proud to remain committed to delivering high-quality medical PPE solutions to the global healthcare community."

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. To attain designation, companies are evaluated on their leadership in the areas of strategy, culture and commitment, capabilities, and innovation, governance, and financial performance.

"To become a Best Managed Platinum Club winner is nothing short of remarkable. Their continued adaptability in an era of uncertainty sets the standard for how to overcome new barriers and demonstrate resiliency at the highest levels,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte Private, Global Best Managed Leader and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “These companies truly impact how Canada is viewed on the world stage when it comes to the success of private business.”

PRIMED's success can be attributed not only to its commitment to quality products but also to its distinctive company culture. Following the pandemic, PRIMED nearly doubled its workforce, now boasting over 1,000 employees worldwide, including 200 in Canada. The company imported ten times its usual volume of personal protective equipment (PPE) into Canada during the crisis, solidifying its position as a leading supplier to the Canadian healthcare sector. This exponential growth and employee retention is a testament to PRIMED's culture. With a focus on energy, enthusiasm, and creativity, PRIMED has cultivated an environment that fosters collaboration, innovation, and employee development.

"We believe in the power of diversity and inclusion to harness different perspectives and fresh ideas," says Mark Kwan, Director, Human Resources at PRIMED. "Our recruitment strategy prioritizes young talent, bringing in individuals who inject new energy and creativity into our team. This approach has been instrumental in driving our company's success."

Looking ahead, PRIMED remains committed to its core values of innovation, agility, and collaboration. The company is focused on maintaining a workplace where individuals feel empowered to contribute their ideas and grow professionally, ensuring PRIMED continues to lead and expand its presence in the global healthcare landscape.
