Canada’s Biggest Dealer Honored For Top Management

Hendrix Restaurant Equipment & Supplies, the largest E&S dealer in Canada, has been named one of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies for 2011.

Hendrix, a FEDA member based in Brockville, Ontario, has six locations in Canada. It is headed by Pres. Larry VanderBaaren, who co-founded the company with his father in 1981.

The awards, determined by an independent panel and covering all business sectors in Canada, are awarded to privately held companies which demonstrate business excellence through a rigorous process evaluating their management capabilities and practices.

Hendrix and the other 49 honored companies have maintained focus on growing their primary business and identifying new income streams, according to John Hughes, Deloitte partner at Private Company Services, and national leader of Canada's 50 Best Managed Companies Program. "They grew through targeted spending in the form of acquisitions, enhancing their infrastructure, and on product and service innovation."
