Pelican BioThermal recognized alongside Minnesota manufacturing powerhouses H.B. Fuller, Mercury Mosaics, Smude Enterprises and Starkey Hearing Technologies.
Pelican BioThermal was honored September 26th, 2019 2019 by Twin Cities Business as one of five winners at the magazine’s first-ever Manufacturing Excellence Awards program. The publication noted the winners “demonstrate that creative thinking is just as fundamental to Minnesota’s manufacturers as it is to the state’s tech sector.”
To select the winners, Twin Cities Business drew from a variety of criteria including each company’s competitive advantages, growth and profitability, new initiatives, operational excellence, workforce development and sustainability efforts. Especially noteworthy was Pelican BioThermal’s 90% increase in its temperature-controlled container fleet — and accompanying 90% increase in revenue — over the last year.
“We’re very proud to be among the inaugural class of Manufacturing Excellence Award recipients from Twin Cities Business,” said Sean Dveris, director of operations at Pelican BioThermal. “Minnesota has an impressive and innovative manufacturing community and we’re honored to be considered among the best of the best.”
Dveris, pictured in the center, accepted this prestigious award on his company’s behalf at the ceremony held at the site of fellow award-winner Mercury Mosaics & Tile, Inc. in Minneapolis. Each of the award winners were also featured in the September issue of Twin Cities Business. Congratulations to all the honorees!
