Point S / Unimax Tire Ltd named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies

Point S / Unimax Tire has made the list of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the second straight year in recognition of its overall performance and sustained growth. The 2019 Best Managed program award winners are among the best in class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues greater than $15 million and demonstrating strategy, capability, and commitment to achieve sustained growth.

Now in its 26th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in 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.

With over 850 independent retailers and over three million tires sold every year, Point S/Unimax Tire Ltd. shifted its focus to retail three years ago when it turned its main brand, Unipneu, into Point S. In just three years, Point S has climbed to the top of the industry in terms of advertising awareness/noise—no small feat when you look at the competition. With its distribution network and seven retail banners, Unimax Tire has been able to up its purchasing power and improve the customer experience at its auto centres. “It’s much more than just financial performance,” says Peter E. Brown, co-leader of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies program and a Deloitte Private partner. “The ingredients to success also include overall business performance and sustained growth. It takes dedication and commitment from the entire organization.”

Applicants are evaluated by an independent judging panel comprised of representatives from program sponsors in addition to special guest judges. The 2019 Best Managed companies share commonalities that include a clear strategy and vision, investment in capability, and commitment to talent. “We’re upgrading our network and now have auto centres in seven different Canadian provinces. In addition to Point S, we’ve launched two other tire and automotive service banners—V1 and Otobox—that each address specific needs among our customers. Standardizing our network makes it much easier for customers to find what they need,” explains Bruno Leclair, President and CEO of Point S Canada/Unimax Tire.

“Canada’s Best Managed Companies deserve recognition for their entrepreneurial approach to excelling in an uncertain economic climate. They truly bring out the best in Canadian business leadership,” adds Brown. The 2019 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at the annual Canada’s Best Managed Companies gala in Toronto on April 17, 2019. On the same date, the Best Managed symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders. The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte Private, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, and TMX Group.
