April 12, 2019 – Last week, Wren Industries won a Colorado Manufacturing Award for Aerospace Manufacturer of the Year. And, on the same day, the Grand Junction-based business was named among the 100 finalists for the 2019 Colorado companies to Watch. Here’s the story via The Business Times:
“Wren Industries was named the aerospace and electronics manufacturer of the year at the Colorado Manufacturing Awards presentation in Denver. The same day, Wren Industries was named a 2019 finalist in the Colorado Companies to Watch program.
CompanyWeek, a weekly publication covering manufacturing in the Rocky Mountain Region, presents Colorado Manufacturing Awards to companies in various sectors of the industry.
Coates Lear — a principal at Squire Patton Boggs, a sponsor of the CMAs — presented the award to Wren Industries. ‘As a small company, Wren punches way over its weight. It is leading a Western Slope push to diversify the industrial scene there, even as it takes advantage of its size to implement new lean practices and maneuver to new opportunities in space,’ Lear said.
The latest 100 finalists in the Colorado Companies to Watch program will be considered for 50 awards scheduled for presentation at a June 21 gala in Denver. The program honors so-called second stage companies for their innovative products, unique processes and performance in the marketplace as well as their philanthropic efforts. To participate, firms must be privately held, headquartered in Colorado, employ the equivalent of six to 99 full-time employees and generate $750,000 to
$50 million in annual sales or working capital.”
