Cobalt Boats was one of five companies to receive top honors in the Wichita Business Journal’s 2013 Best in Business Awards.
Honorees were selected on April 25 by an independent panel of business leaders based on revenue growth, community involvement, marketing and production innovation.
Cobalt said a combination of pride, innovation and customer satisfaction are among the top qualities that have led the company to its success. It is these characteristics that have allowed Cobalt to flourish in the wake of the Great Recession.
“Every day, if it’s not a quality product, it’s not going out,” chief financial officer Bill Wallisch said in a statement. “Cobalt has a deep-rooted quality initiative and the associates here truly believe in it.”
The five top honorees were drawn from 15 finalists and a much longer list of nominees who submitted detailed information about company financials, operations and community involvement. Cobalt joins a roster of Wichita’s top businesses that also earned this recognition.
