A Gold Trophy Award was presented to Boa-Franc in the Quality (Private and Public Sectors) category during the Canada Awards for Excellence (CAE) ceremony at the Carlu in Toronto on November 6. In addition to being recognized for its organizational excellence, achievements, and outstanding results, Boa-Franc stood out during the judging panel’s review for the quality of its planning and internal processes and as an organization devoted to economic progress in the Canadian market.
“We accept this prestigious award for the second time in a row on behalf of President Pierre Thabet, all our employees, clients, and suppliers who share the same dedication to quality that’s been driving our organization since it was founded 35 years ago. What better way to celebrate our 35th anniversary this year,” said Boa-Franc executive vice president and CEO Jacques Beaudoin.
Last year, Boa-Franc also received the highest honor for the second time in a row at the Grand Prix québécois de la qualité awards. Located in Saint-Georges, Boa-Franc designs and manufactures Mirage hardwood floors, which are distributed in Canada and the United States. The company is celebrating its thirty-fifth anniversary this year.
