Safety and survival specialist ACR Electronics, Inc. has been recognized as one of the highest-performing manufacturers in Florida as a winner at the annual Florida Sterling Manufacturing Business Excellence Award Ceremony.

The Broward County-based company was presented with the top award in the category for companies with up to 199 employees at the 2018 Governor's Sterling Awards Banquet at the JW Marriott Orlando Grande Lakes in Orlando, Fla.

Representing the company at the ceremony, Gerry Angeli, Executive Vice President at ACR Electronics, said:

“We accept this award with great pride with the knowledge that this achievement is only possible with an exceptional team doing exceptional work,” said ACR Electronics executive vice president Gerry Angeli in a statement.
