2013 Celebration of Excellence Awards recognizes Jenike & Johanson’s Leadership and Tenacity
May 8, 2013 – Tyngsboro, MA – On Tuesday evening, May 7 2013, before over 1,800 business and community leaders, Enterprise Bank presented its 2013 Celebration of Excellence “Business of the Year” Award to Jenike & Johanson, Inc. This award recognizes and honors successful, local businesses for their financial achievement, positive workplace environment, and continued community impact.
Despite its small size compared to the size of their clients, Jenike & Johanson is the largest firm of its type and has the most complete solids flow testing laboratory in the world. Under the leadership of President John W. Carson and CEO Herman Purutyan, the company prevailed through the recent economic downturn without eliminating staff and has resumed its pre-recession growth. Combining international joint ventures in Canada and Chile with its U.S. company to create Jenike & Johanson Global, the company expanded into Perth, Australia in 2012, and plans to open offices in Houston and Brazil this year.
“Two keys to our success are a passion to offer value and top quality service to our clients while providing a rewarding and stimulating workplace for our employees”, said Dr. Carson.
Jenike & Johanson strongly encourages employees to contribute their energies and resources in giving back to their communities, with the company’s management serving as role models, allowing employees to take time off for charitable work.
“While much has changed in the nearly fifty years since Dr. Andrew Jenike started the company in his basement, his philosophy, vision and goals for the company remain constant: create value for employees, clients and shareholders, as well as for its communities”, said Dr. Carson. “I’m proud to see how this company has grown in the 42 years I’ve been here and I look forward with confidence as a new generation of employees is taking over”.
