Holganix Receives Cleantech's Prestigious Company of the Year Award

Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) September 27, 2013

Philadelphia is a city rich not only in history but as an important hub of business innovation and entrepreneurial spirit. Each year, PACT Enterprises recognizes business gems within the greater Philadelphia region when they announce their prestigious award recipients within the technology and life science industries. PACT Enterprise is recognized as a celebration of, “achievement, innovation and success in the Greater Philadelphia region.”

“As a customer-centric and innovative entrepreneurial firm, we are all about creating value for our customers,” says CEO Barrett Ersek. “We are grateful and honored that PACT has recognized Holganix as a leader in innovation and problem solving.”

Ben Franklin Technology Partners, Exelon Company and PECO sponsored the PACT award for the Clean Tech Company of the year. In order to be considered, companies must have innovative new products or services that have a positive impact on the environment. In 2012, the Clean Tech award went to FieldView Solutions for their efforts in helping customers cut energy usage and power bills, as well as for utilizing greener IT practices. This year Holganix received the award because it is making a big difference in the way landscapers, golf course superintendents, farmers and property owners are thinking about fertilizers.

“Winning the PACT Clean Tech Company of the Year is a tremendous honor,” says Ersek. “Our entire team is focused on our Big Ambitious Noble Goal (BANG) to eliminate 100 million pounds of nitrates, 20 million pounds of phosphates and 100 million ounces of concentrated pesticides from entering our water sources by Earth Day 2016. In a way, winning this award is a great recognition of the significance of our mission at Holganix.”

Awards were presented at the region’s distinctive black-tie gala at the Valley Forge Casino. Runners up in the competition included OxiCool specializing in advanced air conditioning and refrigeration technologies, and Renmatix which produces the lowest cost cellulosic sugar.

This was the 20th annual event and as Diane Strunk said “This was a special year, with a red carpet feel, but what has not changed is PACT’s commitment to honoring the regions’ best technology and life sciences companies and entrepreneurs. It was truly a night of celebration on all fronts.”
