An Eloy-based business, with a home-based Maricopa office, is pulling in nominations for some prestigious awards.
Elite Shutters & Blinds was one of two runners-up in May for the Better Business Bureaus ethics award.“It is a great honor to be a runner-up for this award,” said the company’s owner, Dave German.
“It is very rare for a window covering firm to receive an ethics award.”
A total of 250 companies filled out an application of eligibility for the award after first receiving a nomination. That 115-page application included 40-50 letters from customers about how Elite had established ethics standards in the window covering industry.
While the company didn’t finish first for the ethics award, they are on the verge of being named one of the Arizona Small Business Association’s 10 companies to watch in 2010.
The award recognizes companies the organization views as the pride of Arizona, demonstrating outstanding performance in the marketplace or exhibiting innovative products or processes.
Elite received notification last week that it had made it through to round two of the selection process, and a second application is now necessary. The winners of the award will be announced Nov. 6 at the Sheraton Phoenix Downtown Hotel.
