MARTIN COUNTY -- B4C Technologies received a 2012 Governor's Innovators in Business award.
This statewide program recognizes companies in emerging and high-technology industries for their contributions to Florida's economic growth.
Coordinated by Enterprise Florida, the awards presentation is held by the governor annually during Florida's business innovators month in Tallahassee.
Companies that vied for the award competed with other businesses, organizations, universities and colleges in markets similar to their own size.
This is the sixth consecutive year that Martin County companies have received awards.
"It's extremely rewarding to work with local companies that receive such warranted accolades" said Tim Dougher, executive director, Business Development Board of Martin County.
The Business Development Board of Martin County facilitated applications for many of the companies that participated in the process and authored letters of support to the governor for each.
"It's an honor to add B4C Technologies to the growing list of winners from Martin County," said Mr. Dougher.
B4C Technologies has developed and invented a generational leap in boron diffusion technology that dramatically increases the hardness of metal parts, while also greatly reducing the parts coefficient of friction.
