Bruynzeel Storage Systems has been recognised by Deloitte and ING as one of the best managed companies in the Netherlands for 2014. For the first time, Bruynzeel Storage Systems joined the list of approximately 75 Dutch companies selected as part of an annual Best Managed Companies programme that Deloitte and ING organises together with VNO-NCW and TiasNimbas Business School. Igor La Vos, CEO of Bruynzeel Storage Systems, said: “The title ‘Best Managed Company 2014’, which we are allowed to use for one year, is the result of the hard work and the many changes we have experienced over the past two years.

It is great to see that the outside world recognise the changes and innovations Bruynzeel has implemented and how we are preparing for the future.” The list, which was announced on 4 December 2014, identifies the best managed companies in the Netherlands based on strategy, operations, degree of innovation and financial results. Deloitte and ING singled out the 2014 cohort as having scored well in the field of “innovative entrepreneurship”. Ton van Abeelen, partner at Deloitte, said: “All the companies have demonstrated good entrepreneurial skills by showing courage, vision and perseverance. Striking this year was that companies in traditional and seemingly difficult markets still continued to perform well and engaged positively in the growth and future of their organisations. Ralph Long, Director (Marketing & Large Business) at ING Netherlands, added: “These companies prove that in spite of the current situation in the market, sufficient possibilities are present in order to be successful. We hope that these companies can serve as an example and inspiration for entrepreneurs in the Netherlands. ”
