K-Z Inc. announced that dealer partner Minard’s Leisure World of Weyburn, Saskatchewan, Canada was awarded the designation as Best Managed – Gold Standard by professional services firm Deloitte.

According to a press release, Canada’s Best Managed Companies awards program recognizes Canadian privately-owned and managed companies that demonstrate exceptional business performance. This program highlights the excellence, innovation and impact these private companies have on the Canadian economy.
