2012 Business Appreciation Month winners announced

The Kansas Department of Commerce has named 22 Regional Business Excellence Award winners and 97 Merit Award winners as part of Business Appreciation Month, the Department’s annual celebration of Kansas businesses and their contributions to their communities and the state economy.

The 119 businesses were nominated in one of four categories: manufacturing/distribution, service, retail and hospital/non-profit. Six of the 22 Regional Business Excellence Award winners have been named finalists for the Governor’s Award of Excellence—the top award given to a business by the state—which will be announced June 12 at the Kansas Cavalry Encampment in Manhattan. The six finalists are:

Carter Automotive Warehouse (Coffeyville and four other locations)
Custom Foods Inc. (DeSoto)
Gove County Medical Center (Quinter)
Midland Marketing (Hays)
NetStandard Inc. (Kansas City, Kan.)
Nex-Tech Inc. (Lenora)

“I want to congratulate all the businesses recognized this year,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “They represent the very best of their communities and Kansas. These awards are a way the state recognizes the business accomplishments and community contributions that allow Kansas to be the best place to live and work.”
