For the second year, AFD Petroleum has been named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2015 for excellence in business performance. Sponsored by Deloitte, CIBC, National Post, Queen’s School of Business and MacKay CEO Forums, the Best Managed award recognizes Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $10 million for sustained growth, financial performance, management practices and the efforts of the entire organization.
The entire team at AFD is proud to be acknowledged as one of the ‘Best Managed Companies in Canada’. Our ongoing success is driven by the commitment and tireless effort of everyone in the company. With the downturn in the economic environment over the recent past, the oil industry has struggled, but it is due to the efforts of our entire team that AFD remains strong and poised for continued success. AFD’s commitment to excellence and planned strategies of proactive adaptation, keeping staff informed, adjusting purchase patterns, and achieving cost structure economies are mitigating the impact. Our exceptional staff, excellent and varied customer base and technology partners allow us to keep our finger on our business pulse in real time.
“With many unknowns surrounding today’s economic outlook, keeping a close eye on market conditions is critical for all Canadian businesses, but especially for privately owned enterprises,” said Peter E. Brown, National Co-Leader of Canada’s Best Managed Companies program and Partner, Deloitte Private. “Best Managed companies identify and prepare for potential swings in the market ahead of time. This allows them to adapt their business models and shift investment strategies to areas that are still important to the business, while simultaneously being shielded from adverse market consequences.”
Being named as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies complements AFD’s achievement in October 2015, earning the Silver Medal as Canada’s Safest Employer in the Transportation Category for the second year, national recognition for its ongoing commitment in creating a safer work environment.
AFD’s ongoing success is guided by an unwavering mission to deliver superior customer service, safely and efficiently utilizing innovative equipment and technology. Our company focuses on a niche segment of the Oil and Gas industry specializing in remote location, commercial fueling. As refineries and major oil companies backed out of downstream marketing and distribution of petroleum products, we developed systems and processes to fill the gap. No single company provides a complete, integrated customer product/service offering comparable to AFD.
