Coty1 ThumbKnown for its creative approach to fragrance, this global leader is now making a name for itself in beauty care as well. With more than 100 years of experience behind Coty Canada, Inc., Jeff Wagstaff, president and general manager of Coty Canada, can accurately deduce how the company has stayed in business for so long. It all comes back to the company’s motto of faster, further, freer, which Wagstaff said has long encapsulated Coty’s approach to business. 

Bruce1 ThumbThis manufacturer of Cajun, Mexican, and Southern food goods and hardware can offer consumers and retailers what they need to make a tasty meal. Eight years ago, the largest manufacturer of canned yams and home of The Original Louisiana Hot Sauce made a change that significantly impacted the future of its business. It acquired Cajun Injector, a brand of injectable marinades. 

Allen1 ThumbFor 100 years, this wholesale distribution company’s agility in the face of change has helped it continue to grow. Allen Brothers Wholesale Distribution has come a long way since it was founded in 1910 in a South Philadelphia row house. Defined by an ability to adapt to the changing environment of its customers and vendors, Allen Brothers has managed to handle the uncertainty of the recent economic turmoil by being flexible.

Wac1 ThumbBy running its lighting fixture manufacturing and design business with strong family values, this company has achieved sustainable success. The phrase responsible lighting isn’t one you hear often, but it’s a major focus for WAC Lighting Co. Founded more than 25 years ago, the company recently won New York House’s Innova-tive Green Design Award for its LEDme Downlights, building on its heritage as a leader in lighting sustainability. 

Hypercom1 ThumbEnsuring safe transactions is the key to success for this leader in the electronic payment market. The methods and locations companies can use to accept payments are nearly limitless. When it comes to providing electronic payment and digital transaction products and services, Hypercom stays ahead of the competition by making sure its technology is the most secure.

Jsb1 ThumbAttention to detail, exceptional customer service, and a family-first mentality enable this bakery goods manufacturer to flourish. A lot has changed for JSB Industries in the 15 years since Scott Anderson joined the company as vice president of operations. What hasn’t changed is the fact that the family-owned and operated bakery manufacturer doesn’t have to look far to find new customers. 

Vertis1 ThumbThis marketing communications company delivers advertising, direct marketing, and interactive solutions to prominent brands across North America. These days, being a major player in the areas of printed advertising and direct marketing requires a lot more than just printing up inserts for the Sunday papers. “More than ever, retailers are seeking impactful communications and direct marketing programs that help drive traffic and sales,” said Quincy Allen, Vertis’ chief executive officer. “Today, the key is a multi-channel approach that leverages all of the tools retailers have at their disposal.”

Sportif1 ThumbThis innovative, family-owned men’s apparel retailer is building beyond its 40-plus-year legacy brand to develop an eco-friendly women’s line. Passing a visionary approach from one generation to the next isn’t an easy task. But John G. Kirsch somehow managed to pass that trait onto his son, John Kirsch. Now in charge of the family business, Kirsch said the innovative spirit his late father used to start Sportif USA is alive and well in the company’s newest venture, Aventura Clothing.
