G&L Group was named one of Canada’s “Best Managed Companies” in 2015 for excellence in business performance. The Concord, Ont.-based company is comprised of Toronto Redi-Mix, Brock Aggregates, Earthco Soil Mixtures, Draglam Salt and Draglam Waste & Recycling.
The Best Managed Companies program was launched in 1993 to recognize superior management skills and practices among Canadian-owned and -managed companies with revenues over $10 million.
“Best Managed Companies embrace innovation, seize opportunities and inspire talent,” says the program’s co-leader, Peter Brown. “They really set the bar high.”
G&L Group has served the construction, contracting and landscape industries of Southern Ontario for over 40 years and currently employs more than 250 people.
“G&L Group is especially grateful to its employees for this achievement,” Pat Lamanna, G&L’s senior vice president said. “We’re in a good market in Canada and it allows us to grow, so long as you have the right people. We’re so thrilled to be recognized as a winner of this prestigious award. We could not have done what we’ve done without our people.”
