Minnesota Business magazine has selected Minimizer as a finalist for its 2016 Manufacturing Awards.
Minimizer is one of three finalists for the Best in Class – Midsize Company category.
Each year, Minnesota Business recognizes the manufacturing sector for outstanding achievements. The vital, though often behind-the-scenes industry and its leaders, represents a significant indicator of economic health, the magazine says. The panel of judges chose the finalists from an outstanding pool of manufacturing companies and executives, the largest group of applicants ever.
Minimizer’s nomination is the result of the company’s incredible tenacity, determination and inspiration that has shaped the business since its founding by Dick Kruckeberg in 1984.
Craig Kruckeberg, Dick’s son and current CEO and Chief Visionary at Minimizer, says he’s honored by the company’s nomination.
“The success story of Minimizer has been built on our commitment to family and community and every member of our team that continues to lead this company. I’m really proud of our employees that guide us towards success with our products, our distributors and throughout the trucking industry,” he says.
Winners in each category will be announced at an awards event to be held at ARIA on Sept. 29, 2016. Both winners and finalists will be honored in the feature story of the all-manufacturing October 2016 issue of Minnesota Business magazine.
