Published in the October issue of Canadian Business and at PROFITguide.com, the PROFIT 500 ranks Canadian businesses by their five-year revenue growth.
THREE O FOUR Limited (pronounced THREE "OH" FOUR) made the 2015 PROFIT 500 list with five-year revenue growth of 3,164%.
"The PROFIT 500 represent the highest tier of entrepreneurialism in Canada," says James Cowan, Editor-in-chief of PROFIT and Canadian Business. "They should be lauded for the positive economic contributions they've made to their communities—and the entire country. They are examples of what can be accomplished with innovation, discipline and determination."
"THREE O FOUR Limited is honoured to be on the PROFIT 500 ranking", says founder and company President Allan Hrynyshyn, P. Eng. "The incredible ranking of No.19 is a testament to what a passionate hard working team can achieve while always keeping the customer front and centre. Contrary to the doom and gloom in the news, the material handling sector in Canada is alive and well and it is our goal is to provide the highest quality conveyors and spiral freezing systems at the lowest cost of ownership. A lot of people ask what THREE O FOUR stands for and I am pleased to explain that the term 304 is the most common type of stainless steel used in the manufacture of food conveyors and food equipment. It made sense to associate ourselves with the special nature of this material. Like us, it will never rust".
THREE O FOUR Limited is a manufacturer of high quality conveyors and spiral freezing systems. Span Tech Canada is the operating division of THREE O FOUR Limited which produces the whisper quiet series of Span Tech conveyors for the food and packaging industries. They are known for their ease of re-configurability and are nearly limitless in what they can convey. THREE O FOUR Limited also manufactures the HOLLITHERM brand of spiral conveyors, spiral coolers and spiral freezing systems. Allan states "We recently installed three spiral freezing systems for a food producer in Mexico and our aim is to continue to grow this business in Mexico and throughout Latin America. Continuous freezing systems are becoming more prevalent as consumers transition to frozen prepared meals to meet their busy lifestyles."
