Point S Canada named one of Canada's best managed companies for the third year in a row

Point S Canada has made the list of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for the third straight year in recognition of its overall performance and sustained growth. This achievement is due to its investment in talent, innovation, and technology. The 2020 Best Managed program award winners are among the best in class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues greater than $25 million and demonstrating strategy, capability, and commitment to achieve sustained growth.

Now in its 27th year, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in innovative, world‑class business practices among Canadian owned and managed companies. 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 860 independent dealers and over three million tires sold every year, Point S Canada. shifted its focus to retail four years ago when it turned its main brand, Unipneu, into Point S. In just four 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. “Receiving this prestigious designation is, above all, an opportunity to recognize our employees and dealers. It makes our group more credible with consumers, suppliers, and future employees,” says Bruno Leclair, president and CEO of Point S Canada.
