“Being a strong Canadian company with a positive brand reputation is something Purolator is extremely proud of, and we want to thank our customers for making us one of the most reputable brands in the Canadian marketplace,” said Ramsey Mansour, Purolator’s Vice President of Marketing. “At Purolator, we understand that we do more than deliver our customers' packages; we deliver their promises – and we strive to play a key role in their success by meeting their evolving business needs through our expansive network, integrated technology solutions and excellent customer experience.”

Purolator has been ranked among the top 25 brands in this survey since 2011.

Methodology of the Marketing/Leger 2014 Corporate Reputation Survey
The 2014 Marketing/Leger Corporate Reputation Survey was conducted online between Jan. 7 and 28 from a sample of approximately 2,100 Canadians 18 years of age or older. In total, 193 companies from 36 industries were evaluated in order to adequately represent the players within the various sectors surveyed. Each participant was asked if they had a good or bad opinion of the companies on the list to determine the reputation score (the good opinion minus the bad opinion, rounded to the nearest whole number). Every year, Leger adds new companies to the list based on their significance in the marketplace as well as consumer feedback. The complete Marketing/Leger Corporate Reputation Survey can be found in the May 2014 issue of Marketing.
