CALGARY, Sept. 20, 2011 /CNW/ - Calgary-based System Integration firm True North Automation was recognized in the 12th annual PROFIT HOT 50 list as one of Canada's Top New Growth Companies. Published in the October issue of PROFIT magazine and its online derivative, the PROFIT HOT 50 ranks young firms by two-year revenue growth. The distinction of its 34th place nationwide ranking further cements True North's reputation as one of the most proficient, recognized and successful System Integration companies in Western Canada. "The companies listed in PROFIT HOT 50 exhibit all the traits that underpin business success," commented PROFIT editor Ian Portsmouth. "With good products, persistent and focused leaders and motivated teams, Canada's Top New Growth Companies have achieved enviable growth rates despite a shaky economy."

"When we started True North Automation, our mission was to create an industry-leading automation company, and to employ the best minds in the field to help grow a strong, relationship-based operation," enthused True North's President and Co-Founder Blair Hanel. "Our dedication to clients and staff alike has resulted in lengthy and successful business relationships with most major Oil and Gas producers in Western Canada. Consequently, these relationships have fueled the phenomenal growth of our organization." Based on the company's strong foundation, and on the successful momentum of its vendor-neutral, people-focused business model, True North Automation is poised to significantly expand its employee base in coming months.

"We're honoured and excited that PROFIT magazine has recognized True North Automation in its prestigious HOT 50 category," continued Hanel.

Our employees consistently deliver value and peace of mind to our clients. In turn, our clients remain loyal to the True North brand by their provision of new projects, and by their continued endorsement of True North Automation within the industry. It's a model that works exceptionally well for us."
