Powerblanket is pleased to accept the 2019 Best of State Award for best electric/power product in the category of manufacturing.
The Best of State Award was issued in April after an exhaustive nomination process. According to the award website, more than 100 judges reviewed the nominations. There are ten main categories, with dozens of subcategories that businesses across Utah applied to be nominated for. Each nomination is scored for points, followed by an audit of that score by an independent accounting firm. From the final score, the winners are selected.
“The Best of State Awards were created to recognize outstanding individuals, organizations and businesses in Utah,” the award website stated. “By recognizing excellence in our community and sharing examples of success and triumph in so many worthy endeavors, we hope all will be inspired to reach a little higher, to try a little harder, and to work a little smarter for our dreams and goals.”
Nominations for the award had to show they were proficient in three categories: industry achievement and excellence, innovation, and culture. Powerblanket shined in each of these categories, stating in their application that the company isn’t just another electric blanket manufacturer: “The company’s culture of innovation permeates every level, from the manufacturing floor to the C-Suite.”
In addition, Powerblanket’s top quality products and innovative manufacturing methods were essential in winning the award.
Powerblanket will receive a medal for winning its category and an invitation to the Best of State Gala, where several of the category winners will receive the Best of State Statue for the highest score in their respective categories.
