Established in 1993, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is one of the country’s leading business awards programs recognizing Canadian-owned and managed companies for innovative, world-class business practices.
Layfield stood out from other candidates for their commitment and success in the execution of their strategy, leadership & management performance, establishing a team culture and emphasis on employee talent. Layfield was selected for making significant advancements in technology, innovation, R&D and upgrading core processes and manufacturing capabilites. Canada’s Best Managed Companies offers this award to Layfield Group as an acknowledgment of their business and management success. Founded in 1978, Layfield manufactures and supplies innovative plastics solutions to a wide range of industries across the world.
“As a family business, Layfield views success not by quarterly results, but rather by the long-term overall health and growth of the organization. Even in difficult economic times, we continue to invest in quality people, leading technologies, and capabilities that support our long-term vision. This award is a confirmation that we know how to manage our business and that we can meet our customers’ needs. We’re excited that you placed your trust in us, and we will continue to strive to be the best and do the right thing”, said Tom Rose, President and CEO.
Layfield’s strategy is to be at the forefront of providing unique, innovative, sustainable products that protect our communities, families and the environment. Just a few examples of Layfield’s innovative products include: Aqua Dams, used for flood protection; Evaporation Control Covers, used to protect and preserve water; and BioflexTM packaging materials, designed to be discarded into a modern landfill and recycled into energy for communities, fuel for vehicles and heat for homes. The Best Managed program is sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, Canadian Business, Smith School of Business, TMX Group and MacKay CEO Forums.
