Press Release

Dissan Group honoured as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies’ Platinum Club members, retaining its Best Managed designation for the eighth consecutive year.

Montreal, May 14th, 2024 – Dissan Group, a leading distributor of janitorial products and equipment in Canada, is pleased to announce that it has once again been recognized for the eighth consecutive year in the prestigious Canada’s Best Managed Companies program. This year, Dissan Group has achieved the program’s highest distinction by being awarded a Platinum club member designation. The Best Managed Companies program in Canada is widely recognized as a leading indicator of excellence in business management in the country.  Companies are evaluated based on their strategy, execution capabilities, organizational culture, and financial performance. Becoming a Platinum member is a statement to Dissan Group’s unwavering commitment to implementing best practices across all aspects of its organization.



"We are incredibly proud to receive the designation of the Best Managed Companies program for the eighth year in a row," said Mario Lamarche, CEO of Dissan Group. "This recognition is a reflection of our unwavering commitment to upholding the highest standards of management excellence, which would not have been possible without the hard work and dedication of our teams and partners. We are truly grateful for their ongoing support and contributions to our success."

Dissan Group’s success is founded on fundamental values and a philosophy shared by the entire team, centered on excellence, leadership, teamwork, and a commitment to supporting the company’s goals and ambitions. These values have enabled Dissan Group to differentiate itself from its competitors by implementing strategies focused on development, innovation, and excellence while prioritizing the individual at the heart of its actions.

Upon its first participation in the program eight years ago, Dissan Group quickly recognized the rigorous nature of the qualification process. This realization allowed the company to identify both its strengths and weaknesses and to implement necessary strategies that have led to improved performance over the years. The company’s ongoing success is also due in part to its unwavering commitment to growth opportunities and to investing in the development of its human capital.

The distinction of Platinum Club Member recognizes the daily involvement of Dissan Group’s 150 employees, as well as the trust and loyalty of its customers and various partners.
