On Saturday, February 7, RISE Manufacturing was honored with the 2015 Manufacturer of the Year award at the Broken Arrow Chamber Awards Banquet.
The award is given annually to a company that creates wealth for the community and exports its goods across the nation and abroad. The company must provide quality jobs and opportunities for the region, serving as a backbone of the local economy and engaging in the community.
RISE Manufacturing was recognized for its company growth and culture, including the RISE Fundamentals—a compilation of 32 values that serve as a template for how RISE conducts all business, whether with a customer, employee, vendor, or the community. In addition, the company’s employees were commended for their volunteerism in the community.
“Broken Arrow is home to so many exceptional manufacturing companies. We’re humbled to receive this recognition,” said Matt Torres, president of RISE Manufacturing. “The Broken Arrow Chamber and EDC have played an integral role in our success thus far. We can’t thank them enough.”
The Broken Arrow Chamber of Commerce honored nine companies with Arrowhead Business Awards and 12 community members with Chamber awards. Hundreds of people gathered at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa for the black-tie event.
