Canadian Defence Review Names IMP Aerospace & Defence Top Defence Company for 2017


IMP Aerospace & Defence is honored to have been selected as Canadian Defence Review (CDR) magazine's 2017 pick as the #1 Defence Company in Canada.

This year CDR ranked the top 75 Canadian defence industry leading organizations and will showcase them in the April/May feature issue of CDR magazine. An evaluation panel consisting of CDR editorial staff and independent advisors rank Canadian defence companies based on factors, such as economic impact, innovation, contribution to the nation’s security, corporate integrity and support for Canada’s military.

In announcing this year’s rankings, CDR Publisher and Editor-in-Chief, Peter Kitchen, commented, “With the selection of IMP Aerospace & Defence as this year’s #1 company, we are shining the spotlight on one of the country’s most quietly successful defence contractors. IMP has been an important maintainer of RCAF aircraft like the Aurora, Hercules, Sea King, and Cormorant for many years. It has also been a very important contributor to the economy, employing many skilled and dedicated workers in the process.”

Commenting on the selection, David Gossen, President, IMP Aerospace & Defence, stated, “Our growth is attributable to the investments we make in our people and the development of innovative solutions to meet the operational and mission requirements for our customers both domestically and internationally. I am particularly proud that IMP Aerospace & Defence has been recognized by CDR as the #1 Defence Company for 2017, and I would like to thank the entire team at IMP who has contributed to this achievement and our continuing success.”
