The 2019 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. 

 

Now in its 26th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is 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. 

 

“This year’s Best Managed winners are a testament to the success found when businesses invest in talent, innovate intentionally, and think long-term,” said Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “These companies should be proud of this achievement, and their responsibility in acting as role models for other Canadian businesses.” 

 

Nanometrics was selected from companies across Canada and evaluated based on strategy, culture, execution and financial success. With a long-term strategic vision, the company has evolved from an engineering and manufacturing firm specializing in seismic instrumentation to a vertically-integrated service provider with geophysical data products based on leading-edge scientific research and technologies such as artificial intelligence and cloud-based automation. With investment in talent and dedication to strategic growth, the company has become diversified and stronger as a result.

“Best Managed companies are elevating Canada’s place on the world-stage,” saidLorrie King, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “By broadening their network, and thinking globally, the Best Managed program is honouring these winners for their achievements in Canadian business, and growing influence worldwide.”
