October, 28, 2016 – We are very proud to announce that PacStar was named the 2016 Manufacturing Company of the Year in our size category by the Portland Business Journal – the city’s premier business publication providing comprehensive coverage of the local economic landscape!
The criteria for this award included:
– company financial performance,
– overall business strategy,
– innovative approaches such as excellence in internal operations,
– corporate training, and
– manufacturing processes including sustainable practices.
Our PacStar manufacturing facility, located at our Portland headquarters, just completed a three times expansion and now offers full-rate production for orders from local and regional suppliers including the U.S. Department of Defense. Over the next five years, our company expects up to $100 million in new orders for our small, light-weight, rugged tactical networking equipment, which allow us to make a significant impact in several of our targeted deployment-critical and life-saving markets.
We couldn’t do this without our hardworking PacStar engineering team, who were honored at the 2016 Oregon Manufacturing Awards Breakfast on Thursday, October 27th. CEO, Peggy Miller, proudly accepted the award on behalf of all PacStar employees.
