VANCOUVER, BC / TORONTO, ON – MAY 05, 2021 – Mr. Lube, Canada’s leading quick lube provider in the automotive maintenance sector, is proud to announce that it has been recognized with the prestigious designation of Platinum Club Member by Canada’s Best Managed Companies in 2021.

This is the ninth consecutive year Mr. Lube has been selected for the prestigious award of Canada’s Best Managed Companies, and the third year being awarded the Platinum designation!

 A Best Managed Company Award is the pinnacle of corporate success in Canada and highlights companies that are focused on their core vision, creating stakeholder value and excelling in the global economy.

“Over the past nine years, we have achieved tremendous growth and transformed our brand and operations. Everyone who is a part of the Mr. Lube family has contributed to our success by continuously setting new standards for leadership, innovation, and execution.

This past year presented a new set of challenges, but together, we have thrived once again. Our franchisees are all local owners and operators. Together with their frontline staff, they are cornerstones of their local economies. Through the past year, we worked together to find ways to quickly adapt to changing circumstances, and continued to provide safe, best-in-class service to Canadians right across the country, so they could keep their vehicles running.

Our continued achievement as a Platinum Member of Best Managed Companies exemplifies recognition from industry peers, business leaders, and most importantly, the communities where we live and work. It is a proud achievement for the entire Mr. Lube Family. This is an affirmation that we continue to build a great Canadian company.

On behalf of Mr. Lube’s Board of Directors, our employees, our franchise owners, our partners and suppliers, we are very honoured and humbled to have achieved the prestigious Platinum designation once again,”  

President and CEO for Mr. Lube, Stuart Suls.
