Quesnel company hits Profit 500 level with support from Competitiveness Consulting Rebate program

October 27, 2016


Quesnel business, All-West Crane & Rigging Ltd., has been ranked No. 112 on the 28th annual Profit 500 list, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. Profit 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth. Over the past five years, All-West has demonstrated a 625% growth in revenue.

“Companies become a part of the PROFIT 500 through innovative thinking, smart strategy and sheer grit,” says James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. “These firms demonstrate what Canadian entrepreneurs can achieve, both at home and across the globe.”
All-West has accessed funding through the Competitiveness Consulting Rebate since 2014. To date, the Trust has disbursed $21,825 to support projects ranging from strategic planning, to health and safety certifications to a hangar feasibility study.

“Before, our health and safety manual was missing key components and were not able to meet the requirements of the British Columbia Construction Safety Alliance certificate of recognition (COR). Obtaining this certification has enabled us to not only be a safer and more professional organisation, but better equipped to take on new challenges,” says President and CEO Jerry van Halderen. “Having COR also enables us to be added to Tender/bid lists of larger companies as well as compliance management sites in all sectors, including Mining, Oil & Gas Industrial & construction. Our Profit 500 ranking is a testament to our commitment to excellence. We could not have been this successful without the support of Northern Development and the Competitiveness Consulting Rebate.“
