Matthew MacKenzie was among an impressive and notably humble roster of awardees from across Canada who graced the stage at the 3rd annual Top 20 Under 40 Awards ceremony held at this year's Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show in Toronto.
In an interview following the ceremony MacKenzie discussed how his business has grown from its own humble beginnings -- where he remembers dining on regular meals of Kraft Dinner and beans on toast -- to what it is today.
The ceremony shon a spotlight on some of Canada's leading talent, mirroring the take-home message of the CMTS show's keynote speaker, Linda Hasenfratz, Canada’s 2014 Entrepreneur of the Year and CEO of Guelph, Ontario-based Linamar Corp.
“It’s time to tell positive stories of success, about companies with fantastic productivity and amazing products who are growing and winning right here at home.”
