WingSwept was celebrated with two awards in the past 30 days from both the Garner Chamber of Commerce and the Triangle Business Journal. The Garner based IT firm was awarded the Steady Growth and Achievement Award from the Garner Chamber of Commerce, while the Triangle Business Journal recognized WingSwept with Green Action Program award for the 2010 Green Awards.
The first annual Garner Summit Business Awards banquet was held by the Garner Chamber of Commerce on September 30th. The Summit Awards honor the Best in Business in several different areas. While WingSwept won the Jones Insurance Agency Steady Growth and Achievement award, it was also finalists in two other categories including the Entrepreneurial Award for businesses with 16-50 employees and the Exceptional Customer Experience Award. WingSwept was in the company of other prominent local business in these categories such as S & A Cherokee, Agri Supply, F & D Huebner, LLC and others.
WingSwept was also awarded the Green Action Program award by the Triangle Business Journal this month. This award is given out to the firm who has incorporated successful, environmentally sustainable practices into their company and community. WingSwept was recognized for its environmental initiative, the Technology Spring Clean. The recycling event was started in 2009 by the company to inform the community of the dangers of improperly disposing technological equipment such as old computer monitors into landfills where the chemicals can affect the soil, air, and water supply. This past year WingSwept collected over 22,000 pounds of waste from community members and disposed of them in an environmentally friendly manner.
“It is such an honor to be selected to win both of these esteemed awards,” says WingSwept CEO, Jay Strickland. “Congratulations to our amazing staff and community that made all of this possible!”
