Newmarket, ON (September 15, 2016)
Canadian Business and PROFIT today ranked Spoke O’Motion No. 304 on the 28th annual PROFIT 500, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. Published in the October issue of Canadian Business and at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth.
Spoke O’Motion made the 2016 PROFIT 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 177%.
“Companies become a part of the PROFIT 500 through innovative thinking, smart strategy and sheer grit,” says James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. “These firms demonstrate what Canadian entrepreneurs can achieve, both at home and across the globe.”
“Spoke O’Motion is honoured to be on the PROFIT 500 ranking,” says president Myles Cullen. “This achievement reflects the strength of our product selection, our commitment to extraordinary customer service, and the dedication of our team."
It was also an incredible honour to be recognized by the Newmarket Chamber of Commerce during their annual Business Excellence Awards in 2007.
Two years into my tenure at Spoke O'Motion, we had tripled our sales and had become one of York Region's premiere cycling outfitters.
To celebrate this success, the local business community awarded us with the prestigious Extraordinary Small Business of the Year award. It was one of the most rewarding evenings in my professional career.
Without my incredible staff and our loyal customer base, none of this success could have been possible. Every morning that we unlock the doors we are grateful to our community and look forward to deliver the customer service excellence you have come to expect of us.
Myles Cullen & founder Jan Mikkelsen
