Home Hardware Awarded Platinum Status for Canada’s Best Managed Companies

​St. Jacob’s, ON – March 11, 2019 – Home Hardware was recognized for overall business performance and sustained growth with the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies designation. The 2019 Best Managed program award winners are amongst the best-in-class of Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million demonstrating strategy, capability and commitment to achieve sustainable growth.

Now in its 26th year, 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. 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.

Home Hardware Stores Limited continues to demonstrate the importance of private companies to the Canadian economy. With a family that now includes close to 1,100 stores, Home has come a long way in the past 55 years, growing from 122 independent hardware Dealer-Owners.

“We are honoured to be recognized with Platinum status as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies,” said Kevin Macnab, President and CEO, Home Hardware Stores Limited. “At Home Hardware, we are committed to serving our Dealers and local communities with quality products and a strong distribution network from coast-to-coast.”

“This year’s Best Managed winners are a testament to the success found when businesses invest in talent, innovate intentionally, and think long-term,” said
Peter Brown, Partner, Deloitte Private and Co-Leader, Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. “These companies should be proud of this achievement, and their responsibility in acting as role models for other Canadian businesses.”


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.
