BEST MANAGED COMPANY
Canada’s Best Managed Companies is Canada’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in private Canadian owned companies. Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies undergo a rigorous application process where only the best are awarded with this prestigious designation.
CCI won its initial Best Managed award in 2013 and has successfully retained its status, becoming a Gold Standard winner in 2017! Considered the “go-to” company for designing and constructing trenchless crossings – the most difficult and technical part of projects, CCI continues to be a leader in the industry attributing its success to its sound business strategy of zero failures and highly technical professionals and skilled “360° Team”.
TOP 50 TRENCHLESS
In addition to trenchless billings, the survey asks participants to report total company billings, number of trenchless professionals working for the firm, the number of trenchless projects completed in the past five years and finally, a breakdown of trenchless projects completed by method.
