Pelican Wire Company wins another state award
Pelican Wire Company, Inc., has been recognized as a recipient of the 2013 Florida Companies to WatchSM award, an honor presented by GrowFL at the University of Central Florida.
A press release said that the list, now in its third year, honors 50 companies from across the state of Florida that will be honored Thursday, October 24 at the Hard Rock Live in Orlando, Florida. The program recognizes privately held second-stage Florida-based companies with less than a hundred full-time employees. The winners, it said, are chosen based on their "intent and capacity to grow based on employee or sales growth, exceptional entrepreneurial leadership, sustainable competitive advantage, outstanding corporate culture, inspired community giving and other notable strengths."
Based in Naples, Florida, Pelican Wire, which manufactures high quality wire and cable products specializing in electrical heating and thermocouple temperature measurement, was also named Southwest Florida's Manufacturer of the Year and nominated for Florida's Manufacturer of the Year, the release said. It noted that during 2007-2009, such second-stage companies employed nearly 2.5 million workers.
