by David Heitman

We’re thrilled for our client, Birko,  just named Top Company of 2013 in the manufacturing category by ColoradoBiz magazine.

Birko had an impressive year in 2012, its third consecutive year of double-digit growth. It was also the third time Birko was up for this prestigious award.

“We owe a tremendous debt of gratitude to our customers for their loyalty,” said Birko’s CEO Mark Swanson. “Yet we couldn’t have achieved this prestigious honor without the dedication and hard work of our wonderful employees.”

In the words of Kelly Green, third-generation owner and chairman of Birko’s board, “My grandparents founded this company on a bedrock of perseverance. Throughout our 60 year history, we have taken to heart Winston Churchill’s advice: ‘Never give up. Never give up. Never give up.’ ”

Birko is a leading provider of food safety solutions to the meat, produce and beverage industries. Birko manufactures concentrated, environmentally friendly chemical formulations used in the manufacturing process of food.
