Every year since 1988, the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University has awarded local companies by placing them on one of their Weatherhead 100 lists.
This year, Special Metal Stamping has been honored with a placement on the Weatherhead 100 Upstarts List. This category is for companies that have no more than 15 employees or have net sales of less than $5 million.The Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University has one of the top MBA programs in the country. The school also offers a number of undergraduate and graduate degrees. The classes are taught by renowned faculty who are experts in their fields. This makes the Weatherhead 100 list an even greater honor, as we received these accolades from some of the best of the best. Plus, it’s possible to make the list more than one year in a row, as some excellent businesses have done. As long as we keep being great at what we do here at Special Metal Stamping, the sky’s the limit!
In order for a company to be placed on the Weatherhead list, they need to go through the application process. All companies need to be located in Northeast Ohio, a region that the Weatherhead School of Management defines as extending from Trumbull to Erie Counties in east and west, and down to Stark County in the south. The applications ask for financial information on each company. Candidates need to be an independent business – not a franchise or a subsidiary. They also need to be for-profit enterprises.
Weatherhead 100 Award Ceremony
Representatives from all honored companies attended the Weatherhead 100 Award Ceremony on November 30, 2017. There, we accepted the award for our place on the list during the ceremony. The ceremony was held at the Superior Ballroom in the Downtown Cleveland Hilton Hotel. This year marked the 30th anniversary of the awards, making it all the more memorable. The awards ceremony and a list of all of the winners will be published in an upcoming edition of Crain’s Cleveland Business. Please look for our name and accompanying information!
We’re thrilled to be included on the Weatherhead 100 Upstarts list, especially since they named us as one of the area’s 100 Fastest Growing Companies. We look forward to serving the Northeast Ohio area for years to come. We are excited that they chose to honor our business.
