Sinmat Wins 2017 Manufacturing Company of the Year!

The Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce and presenting sponsor SunTrust Bank last week announced the 2017 Business Awards winners. The Chamber annually honors businesses for their role in helping our region advance toward a vision of Greater Gainesville as a global hub of talent, innovation, and opportunity. To be considered for a Business Award, the organization must standout for excellence and innovation within business practices and community involvement.

"I am honored to have the opportunity to recognize the 2017 Businesses of the Year," said Chamber President/CEO Susan Davenport. "This year's recipients are among Greater Gainesville's premier businesses, and have demonstrated their commitment to excellence, innovation and community stewardship."

With 1,300 members, more than 50 nominees, and only nine awards, competition for this year's Business Awards was highly competitive. Each application was reviewed three times by a panel of judges composed of fellow members of the Chamber. Judges critiqued applicants in six areas of assessment ranging from strength of business plan to level of community involvement.
