Distech Controls was recently recognized at the “Grands Prix québécois de la qualité” (GPQQ) as a grand prize laureate in the SME Independent Manufacturer category.

Distech Controls was evaluated on, and rewarded for, its performance in the following categories: strategic planning; client and market focus; information measurement, analysis, and management; attention paid to human resources; operational performance; and financial results.

“The vision of Distech Controls is to deliver innovative solutions for greener buildings through our passion for innovation, customer satisfaction, sustainability and, of course, quality,” said Etienne Veilleux, president and CEO of Distech Controls. “We work diligently to ensure that superior products and services are provided via our total quality system and 100% customer satisfaction program. To have this commitment be recognized with such a prestigious award is truly an honor for the entire team,” added Veilleux.

"Whether small, medium or large, Quebec companies understand the importance of implementing best business practices and strengthening their organizational performance in all activities and at all levels of management. I therefore wish to congratulate each of the organizations that applied to the ‘Grands Prix québécois de la qualité’ as well as the winners who set the standard in quality and are inspiring role models for all Quebecers," said Jacques Daoust, Minister of Economy, Innovation and Exports.
