Canada’s Best Managed Companies

On February 16, 2010, Saskatchewan Minerals was named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.

The following year, we received the distinction again. In 2012, we made the list once more.

The program
Canada’s Best Managed Companies is an esteemed national award program that recognizes Canadian companies that demonstrate business excellence. Established in 1993, the program honours those organizations that implement world-class business practices, and create value in innovative ways.

Recognition for Saskatchewan Mining and Minerals Inc.?
Saskatchewan Minerals was first named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies following a rigorous screening process that scrutinized every aspect of our business strategies and practices. Our standing is reassessed annually, and the distinction awarded again and again.

“We are truly proud to be named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies. This award speaks to the strength of our Saskatchewan Minerals family. From our plant in Chaplin, we’re leading the market in production of the highest quality natural sodium sulphate. Our customers have come to expect excellence — in both our product and our service. This prestigious award honours the dedication, integrity and commitment of our entire team.”
Rodney McCann, President and CEO

The first 10 million tons

After 61 years in business, Saskatchewan Mining and Minerals Inc.? shipped its 10 millionth ton of sodium sulphate on August 13, 2009. The milestone was a tribute to the hard work and dedication of its employees, who celebrated the occasion along with provincial dignitaries and the Chaplin community. At the event, president and CEO Rodney McCann also acknowledged those customer relationships that have made Saskatchewan Mining and Minerals Inc. such a success story.

“We were only able to accomplish this through the great partnerships with our valued customers. We want to acknowledge their contribution and thank them for their loyalty over the years. We’re eager to continue with these successful partnerships in the coming years as we head toward our 20 millionth ton.”
Rodney McCann, President and CEO
