Company and Leadership Receive Seven Awards to Date in 2012
September 24, 2012
Aribex, Inc., worldwide leader in handheld X-ray technologies, formally expressed their appreciation for the honor of receiving seven awards to date in 2012. While these awards, including the Inc. 500/5000, further validate the company’s growth and quality, they serve as a greater tribute to the compelling cause of providing improved access to care to millions worldwide.
“We are grateful to receive so much recognition for the positive things we are trying to accomplish,” said Ken Kaufman, president and CFO of Aribex. “These awards are the result of years of effort and support from our customers and suppliers, and of course our employees and their families. Many of these awards also honor Dr. Turner, the founder of Aribex and inventor of our innovative products.”
In August, Aribex was named to the Inc. 500/5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies for the fourth consecutive year, and was also named as one of 13 companies to receive the 2012 Alfred P. Sloan Award for Excellence in Effectiveness and Flexibility from the Salt Lake Chamber of Commerce. The Sloan Awards recognizes model employers of all types and sizes across the U.S. for their innovative and effective workplace practices.
In June, Utah Business magazine recognized Kaufman among eight Utah leaders as “CFO of the Year”. A month prior, Signal Peak Ventures (formerly vSpring Capital) named Kaufman to the 2012 class of Top 100 Venture-affiliated Entrepreneurs. The v100 recognizes the next wave of emerging entrepreneurs, companies and executives supporting Utah’s venture community.
In May, the Medical Design Excellence Awards (MDEA) also bestowed the Silver Award to the Aribex flagship product, the NOMAD Pro . This competition is the premier awards program for the medical technology community, recognizing the achievements of medical product manufacturers and the many people behind the scenes—engineers, scientists, designers, and clinicians—who are responsible for groundbreaking innovations that are changing the face of healthcare.
Utah Valley BusinessQ magazine recognized Aribex as one of Utah’s top 30 fastest-growing companies in their summer 2012 issue.
Starting a successful calendar year for the company, the Manufacturing Leadership 100 Awards also honored Aribex for their achievements in the Innovated Enterprise category in January. The awards honor companies and individuals that are shaping the future of global manufacturing.
