Novatech Group wins platinum for the 2022 Best Managed Companies

Sainte-Julie (Quebec), May 10, 2022 – Groupe Novatech is rewarded for the seventh consecutive year and receives the title of platinum member among the winning companies of the prestigious list of Companies best managed in Canada.

Since 2015, the company has been recognized for its overall performance and sustained growth by receiving this prestigious title year after year. To distinguish itself, Groupe Novatech has demonstrated its raison d’être, its vision, its mission, the relevance of its business model and its corporate strategy. Over the years, the manufacturing company has experienced significant growth, fueled in particular by a series of complementary strategic acquisitions that have enabled it to become a key player in the door and glazing industry across the North America.

“  The consecration of platinum member for Groupe Novatech highlights the great performance of our team and underlines its professionalism. As we mark our 40th anniversary this year, obtaining this prestigious title underscores our sustained efforts and the dedication of our people to the success of our company. This is a source of great pride for me  ,” underlines Mr. Harold Savard, President and CEO of Groupe Novatech.

In 2021, Groupe Novatech acquired two patio door manufacturing plants in Quebec and Ontario. Thanks to these acquisitions, Novatech consolidates its position as the largest Canadian manufacturer for this type of product with its seven production sites. Recently, more than $50 million was invested in its plants in modernizing equipment and automating operations, which allowed for an increase in production capacity. The group has created more than 60 new jobs.

In Sainte-Julie, the steel door plant has been considerably expanded and the addition of equipment, notably two Intercept lines and a second press for steel panels, will allow a 25% increase in production. The company is also looking to fill more than 30 positions to support this growth.

The winners of the 2022 Best Managed Companies program are selected from among the elite of Canadian-owned and managed companies with revenues exceeding $50 million. In order to obtain such a distinction, a company must demonstrate its strategic leadership, its innovations, its culture and a positive financial balance sheet marked by sustainable growth. There are four award tiers and Platinum Club members (recipients who have retained the Best Managed title for seven or more consecutive years). Canada’s Best Managed Companies program, now in its 29th year year, remains the nation’s leading business awards that recognizes Canadian-owned and managed companies for their innovative, world-class business practices. Program sponsors are Deloitte Private, CIBC, The Globe and Mail, Salesforce and TMX Group. To learn more, visit www.bestmanagedcompanies.ca

“  Becoming a Platinum Best Managed Club winner is a tremendous achievement ,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte, and Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. ” These companies demonstrate resilience, versatility and strategic acumen. They have consistently demonstrated their ability to thrive in a rapidly changing competitive marketplace. This year’s recipients should be proud not only of this prestigious recognition, but also of the significant contributions they make to Canada’s business community . »
