Boa-Franc, a Canadian manufacturer of prefinished hardwood floors, has received the highest award bestowed by the Quebec government on businesses and organizations that successfully apply best business practices, a Grand Prix. The award recognizes organizational excellence and outstanding results, but Boa-Franc was further singled out by the jury for the quality of its strategic planning process and its attentiveness to both customers and markets. A Grand Prix in the small to medium-size independent manufacturing company category was presented to Boa-Franc in a ceremony at the Palais des congrès de Montréal.

“I’m accepting this award on behalf of 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,” said Jacques Beaudoin, executive vice president and CEO of the Saint-Georges, Quebec-based company, who accepted the award for Boa-Franc President Pierre Thabet and Boa-Franc’s 475 employees. “It's proof positive that teamwork, continuous improvement, and making everyone accountable for quality really do pay off.”

Boa-Franc was also named Best Employer in Canada in 2016 and 2017. The company will celebrate its 35th anniversary in 2018.
