Winners Revealed in the 2021 Colorado Manufacturing Awards
The 2021 Colorado Manufacturing Awards recognizes outstanding companies and people shaping American manufacturing, in a region emerging as a model for a new, dynamic sector.
Denver, Colorado — Winners were announced last week in the sixth annual Colorado Manufacturing Awards at a virtual event co-hosted by CompanyWeek and Manufacturer's Edge Colorado's NIST-sponsored Manufacturing Extension Partner. Sen. John Hickenlooper (D-CO) and Rep. Jason Crow (D-CO) shared video messages with the winners during the ceremony.
With 14 categories and more than 40 finalists, this year's CMAs were the biggest yet. CompanyWeek Publisher Bart Taylor also noted the participation of nearly 25 judges, many of them previous CMA finalists and winners. "The thoughtfulness of the deliberations was impressive," he said of the judging process. "As they are every year, the judges were a highlight."
Winners hailed from across the state, even as Arvada and Boulder County cemented their statuses as regional enclaves of manufacturing success and diversity. Special Aerospace Services (Boulder/Arvada) was awarded Aerospace Manufacturer of the Year, while Sundyne (Arvada) earned honors as the 2021 Industrial/Equipment Manufacturer of the Year.
