HALIFAX, June 12, 2014 /CNW/ - Today Mercer's Best Built Structures
achieved a ranking of #40 in the 26th annual PROFIT 500 ranking of Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies by Canadian Business and PROFIT. Mercer's achieved recognition on the 2014 PROFIT 500 list
with five-year revenue growth of 1,488 %. This is the second year in a
row that Mercer's Best Built Structures has been recognized as one of
Canada's Fastest-Growing Companies. It ranked 22nd last year with revenue growth at 2,353 percent! Profit 500 ranks
Canadian businesses by their revenue growth over five years.
Mercer's Best Built Structures has built a strong reputation as a
trusted builder of homes, cottages, and attached and detached garages
in Nova Scotia. As well as new construction Mercer's is also an expert
full-services construction company for residential additions and
renovations. Founded in 2006, the company has seen exponential revenue
growth year after year.
"We work hard to turn home owners' dreams into reality. We work closely
with customers to customize homes and garages to work within their
budget, while still ensuring the highest quality design and product
selection," Jeremy Mercer, CEO of Mercer's continues "and we continue
to focus on three core values: quality, affordability and outstanding
"The members of the PROFIT 500 are the elite of the country's
entrepreneurial community," says James Cowan, Editor-in-Chief of
Canadian Business and PROFIT. "Their stories are lessons in business
strategy, innovation, management excellence and sheer tenacity."
Mercer's truly does set itself apart from other builders - in more than
one way. For starters, with respect to customization of homes and
garages. Instead of only offering pre-designed plans, dedicated
in-house architect and designers are able to customize homes to meet
any home owner's needs and wants. Another key difference is the
company focuses on "Lifelong" homes, by utilizing 16 design criteria
that takes into consideration building accessibility and usability, or
future physical requirements a home owner may encounter as they age.
Designing with the 16 "Lifelong" design criteria ensures that future
upgrade cost if any, are minimal, and more importantly possible.
Building with aging requirements, or just general physical restrictions
in mind includes, but is not limited to, designing with entrance level
living space, wider doors and hallways, designing bathroom walls to
allow for future provision of grab rails, etc.
Mercer's was ranked #2 for fastest growing companies in Atlantic Canada
last year by Progress Magazine and has been awarded Nova Scotia Home
Builders' Association Peter Kohler Peak Awards, a designation presented
for exceptional work in construction. Mercer's has also been chosen as
one of the two builders for the Seven Lakes Development in Porters
Lake, and ground is breaking next week on the first model home.
