ARVADA -- Faustson, a leader in the 3D machining industry, was the winner in the inaugural Colorado Manufacturing Awards’ contract manufacturing category.
“If food and beverage has become Colorado’s national manufacturing calling card, its contract manufacturing sector -- today boasting world-class advanced fabricators in technology sectors like aerospace and bioscience -- may be its future,” said CompanyWeek Founder Bart Taylor.
The awards were organized and presented by CompanyWeek and Manufacturer’s Edge.
The theme for this year was “Competitiveness,” with a goal of recognizing market-leading companies building a sustainable competitive edge.
Nominees were evaluated on criteria that included business performance, product or process excellence, innovation, employee involvement and culture.
Other category winners included Modular Electronics in Aerospace & Electronics; Voormi in Lifestyle & Consumer; Mountainside Medical in Bioscience & Medical; Fresca Foods in Food & Beverage; Ska Brewing in Beer & Brewing; Colorado Malting Company in Supply Chain; Vestas in Energy & Environment; Faustson client Woodward in Industrial; and RK in Build Environment.
“It was an honor just to be nominated in such an aggressive and competitive category, but a complete shock, and one we were humbled by, to win,” said Faustson Vice President Heidi Hostetter.
“We have always had the mantra that we need to be the ‘Ritz’ of our industry and we will continue to carry that mantra out. This award is validation that we’re doing what our manufacturing partners expect.
“To be a contract manufacturer in this day-and-age means you must really engage with different industries and customers and be able to pivot and adapt quickly. We hear you Colorado, and we will continue to service you to the absolute best of our abilities.”
