CALGARY, Alta. – Martin Ferguson, fund manager with Calgary-based Mawer Investment Management, says a small Canadian company customizing refuse trucks is a best buy for small-cap investors.

Among stocks mentioned by Ferguson in an earlier media interview, his choice of Wittke Inc. has since surged 187 per cent to a 52-week high of $10.20 on Jan. 25.

Wittke manufactures truck-mounted equipment for use in commercial applications.

Current product offerings include commercial front load refuse vehicles, residential front load refuse vehicles, manual side load refuse vehicles, automated side load refuse vehicles, street sweepers and related containers and equipment all badged with the Wittke name.
