AAG Best Managed Companies 2nd year

AAG Named One of Canada’s Best Managed Companies for Second Consecutive Year

AAG Tailored Cutting Solutions was recognized once again for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. Each year, hundreds of entrepreneurial companies have competed for this designation in a rigorous and independent process that evaluates their management skills and practices. As a 2022 Best Managed program award winner and amongst best-in-class Canadian-owned and -managed companies with revenue over $50 million, AAG Tailored Cutting Solutions was again recognized for their strategic planning, adaptability, and commitment to their communities as key factors contributing to their success on a global scale. In the 29th year of the program, Canada’s Best Managed Companies combine strategic expertise and a culture of innovation with a steadfast commitment to their communities.

“This year’s Best Managed winners displayed courage, resourcefulness, and creativity as they explored new avenues for advancement,” said Lorrie King, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “We’re extremely proud to recognize their impressive achievements in such a rapidly changing business world. Their successes demonstrate the importance of strong leadership and forethought in driving long-term growth.”

AAG Tailored Cutting Solutions has been once again recognized due to their continued perseverance and agility during the last year. Even through component shortages and logistics delays, our teams pull together to innovate, grow, and operate more efficiently. This allowed AAG to keep their team employed, keep their customers running and support their communities.

“The #1 feature our customers want to buy is the relationship with our team. Their decades of knowledge and experience. Their tireless reliability and integrity. Their passion for innovation and ingenuity. These cannot be bought off the shelf. They are forged by decades of hard work. I am truly grateful to work alongside so many dedicated teammates. This award is further proof of how incredible our team is. Thank you for the recognition!”

Canada’s Best Managed Companies are also demonstrating a renewed focus on customer and community relationships, with many of this year’s winners taking active

strides to integrate environmental, social, and governance considerations into their strategic planning and decision-making.

2022 winners of the Canada’s Best Managed Companies award will be honoured at galas across the country. The Best Managed virtual symposium will address leading-edge business issues that are key to the success of today’s business leaders.
