For the third year in a row, Canadian Business and Maclean’s ranked Shearwater Research Inc on the annual Growth List, the definitive ranking of Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies. This year, Shearwater Research ranks 197th. Produced by Canada’s premier business and current affairs media brands, the 2020 Growth List ranks Canadian businesses on five-year revenue growth. 2020 Growth List winners are profiled in a special print issue of Canadian Business, published with Maclean’s magazine, and online at CanadianBusiness.com and GrowthList.ca.
Shearwater made the 2020 Growth List with a five-year revenue growth of 378 per cent. This places Shearwater Research No. 197 among companies nationwide.
“The companies on the 2020 Growth List are really exceptional. Their stories are a masterclass in how to survive when the economy throws a curveball. Despite turbulence, the 2020 Growth List companies showed resilience, spirit and, most importantly, empathy and strong leadership,” says Susan Grimbly, Growth List Editor. “As we celebrate over 30 years of the Canada’s Fastest-Growing Companies program, it’s encouraging to see that the heart of Canada’s entrepreneurial community beats strong, even in tough times.”
“It’s an honour to have Shearwater recognized, and we appreciate the support of our loyal and new customers in good times and challenging times.” Jim Hartt, Shearwater CEO commented. “We are constantly striving to create value adding products in the dive community, and being recognized with this award means a lot to all of us on the Shearwater team.”
