Vermont Business Magazine and KeyBank once again recognized BioTek Instruments, Inc. as a recipient of the 5x5x5 Growth Award at the 9th annual awards ceremony on Thursday, September 15, 2011.
As one of Vermont's Top Five Technology Businesses experiencing outstanding growth over five years, BioTek also received this award in 2008.
Briar Alpert, BioTek's President and CEO commented, "BioTek is a privately held, family business. Because of this, we are able to make decisions and investments that we believe are in the best long-term interest of our customers and our employees. In our experience, this has been the key to our long term success."
"Vermont Business Magazine has been following BioTek Instruments for over twenty years and have watched closely the extraordinary growth in sales they have experienced over this time," noted Vermont Business Magazine Publisher John Boutin.
Boutin continued, "With the hardships that companies have faced the past few years with the economic downturn, it is uplifting to honor companies like BioTek with the 5x5x5 Growth Award; companies that continue to grow."
