Honoring business excellence

The Business Excellence Awards of Greater Canton are presented by the Canton Regional Chamber of Commerce to honor outstanding achievements by companies across the region.

This year, six businesses were recognized with Outstanding Business Awards and one company was tabbed Business of the Year.

Judges were asked to evaluate Outstanding Business Award nominations based on the company’s staying power, service, product innovation, employee growth, response to adversity and community involvement. The Business of the Year Award was presented to the company that has grown by a significant number of employees, expanded its operations, embarked upon capital improvements, increased its product line or succeeded in another related area — all within the last year.

Honorees were feted at an awards banquet April 24.
