C&T Rentals and Sales Ltd. was founded in 1987 by Ed Dwyer. Today Ed and his wife Diana along with their three children run this family business that has since grown to include three Winnipeg locations. C&T Rentals helps contractors, homeowners, builders and industrial companies by renting them top-quality, impeccably maintained equipment they need to complete their work. The company will go on to represent Manitoba in the national competition.
Attendees enjoyed the behind-the-scenes family stories told by C&T Rentals and Sales Ltd. and the two other finalists, the Diamond Gallery and Rondex.
“Manitoba Family-Owned Businesses continue to be recognized as some of the most important and valued employers throughout Manitoba”, says Bob Spriggs of Vector Construction, the current President of the Manitoba Chapter of CAFE. “We were honoured to celebrate business success with this year’s Manitoba Family Enterprise of the Year Award finalists, which spotlighted families who have shown their dedication to our community and strengthening the family business footprint in Manitoba. We are so pleased to congratulate the 2015 Manitoba award recipient, C & T Rentals and Sales Ltd. and wish them all the very best as they represent Manitoba for the National award.”
Since 1983, the Family Enterprise of the Year Award has recognized significant achievements by Canadian family businesses, acknowledging their importance in Canada’s economy. Every nomination must meet eligibility requirements and undergoes a rigorous judging process to become a finalist and a winner.
“We are extremely impressed with all of this year’s remarkable finalists and their passionate success stories,” said Brent Rombough, Vice-President & Market Manager, Winnipeg for BMO Private Banking, the presenting sponsor for the FEYA award. “On behalf of BMO Private Banking, I am pleased to congratulate C&T Rentals and Sales Ltd. as this year’s winner.
