"We're a small company in a competitive industry," says GMS President Mark MacLeod. "The key driver of our success is our people. The can-do attitude and drive they bring to their work in every role makes all the difference. Our staff are dedicated to fulfilling our commitment to our customers today – and to working towards a future where we will bring the GMS difference to even more customers in our home province and beyond."

"In return, we invest in a work environment that supports and encourages people to contribute their best and recognizes and rewards their performance," MacLeod noted. "We're also proud to be a Saskatchewan-based business, offering career opportunities and contributing to the economy of our home community. Our success enables us to give back to the Regina community through events like the GMS Queen City Marathon and look for even bigger ways to impact community health and well-being. The accomplishments of our employees contribute to the quality of life we all enjoy – a win-win scenario.”
