SALT LAKE CITY – April 30, 2019 – Monnit’s wireless sensors and gateways have earned the 2019 Best in State (Utah) Award for Production & Manufacturing Hardware. The award recognizes Monnit® Wireless Sensors, Gateways, and Software for “Excelling and Surpassing All Else®”.
“The Best of State Award reflects more than just the performance of our wireless sensors, it reflects the greater community,” said Brad Walters, Monnit CEO. “Monnit’s remote monitoring solutions are undoubtedly the best-of-breed because they are engineered, assembled, and supported by Utah’s best and brightest, and this award recognizes that.”
About the Best of State Award
Best of State judges from academia, health care, hospitality, and business services evaluate products and services in 10 sectors ranging from sports/recreation to technology and dining. Judges evaluated achievement in the respective field, innovative approach, and dedication to quality of life in Utah.
“The Best of State Awards were created to recognize outstanding individuals, organizations, and businesses in Utah,” said Mark Layton, Best of State CEO. “By recognizing excellence in our community and sharing examples of success and triumph in so many worthy endeavors, we hope all will be inspired to reach a little higher, to try a little harder, and to work a little smarter for our dreams and goals.”
Competition for the Best of State production award was fierce as Utah is home to the Silicon Slopes—a global tech hub. This proximity means that there was an onslaught of tech-forward products vying for recognition, and it also means that the judges are experienced in recognizing superior technology.
