Comfort Remote Site Services Ltd.
Comfort Remote Site Services Ltd. (Comfort) was a remote-site food service company based in Oakville, Ontario. The chairman and chief executive officer (CEO) of Comfort was preparing a bid for the catering, housekeeping, and janitorial services for the Gregory Mine, an iron ore mine owned by Yellowstone Mining and located 320 kilometres north of Yukon, Canada. The remote food services industry involved a highly competitive bidding (often closed) process. Revenues in the industry had declined by 30 per cent in 2015 due to a weak global economy, and a subsequent downturn had occurred in natural resource commodity prices. The CEO must work through the financial analysis before deciding on whether to submit a bid.
