We made Platinum! As one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies

03/07/2018  Houle Electric Limited is pleased to announce that it has joined the Platinum Club of Deloitte Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. Platinum is the highest level a Best Managed Company can achieve; a company is only eligible to apply after seven consecutive years in the program. Houle joins some very well-known Canadian businesses in the category, such as A&W Food Services of Canada, Boston Pizza International, Coast Capital Savings Credit Union, and White Spot Limited. Houle also finds itself in some familiar company with top industry clients and partners. EllisDon, E.B. Horsman & Son, Graham Construction, Maple Reinders, Omicron Canada, and PCL Construction are amongst the Platinum Club members.

Houle first became a Canada’s Best Managed Company in 2012. While some companies can make several attempts at applying before becoming a member, Houle was awarded the honour by Deloitte after its first attempt. After seven years, the company continues to retain member status by continually demonstrating a strong trend of growth in profitability, people, and resources. This is supported through a strategic plan to advance success via new markets and services, under the management and direction of Houle’s Executive and Leadership teams.

The Best Managed Company designation represents a long standing tradition of prestige and excellence within the Canadian private business sector. This recognition sets Houle’s brand apart from its competitors and enhances sales and marketing efforts across different platforms. Moreover, as a privately held corporation, Houle has also benefitted from the program’s annual qualification process. This yearly audit serves as a third-party evaluation that seeks to develop a detailed picture of the current state and forecast of the company’s financial health, growth prospects, and market performance. By undergoing this process, Houle commits a significant amount of time and resources every year to submit a strong qualification and ensure its member status.  As Houle has never failed to maintain status and has now achieved the highest level, employees, partners, and clients alike can be pleased in knowing that the company continues to be well managed, maintaining a strong path towards growth and success.
