FourQuest Energy Named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies
March 25th, 2014 – EDMONTON, ALBERTA – FourQuest Energy is pleased to announce the honour of being named one of Canada’s Best Managed companies for 2013. Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies is the country’s leading business award program. It recognizes companies that have successfully demonstrated excellence in corporate strategy and core competencies, as well as their commitment to clients, employees, and their communities. Candidates are evaluated using a rigorous application process.
FourQuest Energy is a privately owned company headquartered in Edmonton, Alberta. The company was founded in 2007 by four industry experts who shared a common belief that pre-commissioning could be done in a much more efficient way. FourQuest offers a variety of services, focusing primarily on mechanical pre-commissioning, commissioning, and scheduled maintenance and shutdown events. It has locations across North America, the Middle East, Africa, and the Caspian region.
“We believe in promoting from within, and feel this strategy has paid off,” said Nik Grgic, FourQuest Energy President. “Our recent employee survey showed that 93% of our employees feel they can talk to their manager about any matter that is important to them; the same percentage said they feel they have opportunities to share their thoughts and ideas.”
FourQuest Energy earned an ISO 9001:2008 certification in 2011 after only three and a half years in business. The certification represents a commitment to quality standards and a commitment to the customer. The honour of being one of Canada’s Best Managed is further recognition of FourQuest Energy’s commitment to excellence.
”We have succeeded at attracting the best experience available in the industry and blending it with young professionals who are full of potential in an environment that promotes coaching, personal development, and achievement,” said Mark Elliott, Vice-President of Sales and Marketing.
