BALTIMORE, Md.—Pixelligent Technologies, a manufacturer of high-index advanced materials (PixClear®) for displays, solid state lighting, and optical components, was recently named the 2017 Manufacturer of the Year by Frost & Sullivan. Pixelligent won the award, in the small/midsize company category for companies with revenues under $1 billion, for its PixClearProcess™. The winner for the large company 2017 Manufacturer of the Year was Dow Chemical.
The Manufacturing Leadership Awards, now in their 13th year, honor manufacturing companies and individual manufacturing leaders that are shaping the future of global manufacturing. Frost & Sullivan works in collaboration with clients to leverage visionary innovation that addresses global challenges and related growth opportunities.
Over the past five years, Pixelligent has invested more than $20 million in designing and building its advanced product development and manufacturing platform, the PixClearProcess. The proprietary platform is reported to have enabled Pixelligent to scale from a manufacturing capacity of grams-per-year, to “one of the most sophisticated and highly capital efficient manufacturing lines in the world, capable of mass production volumes in the tons,” according to a release from Frost & Sullivan.
“We are deeply honored to be named the 2017 Manufacturer of the Year by Frost & Sullivan. It’s especially gratifying as we competed against some of the most respected high-tech manufacturers in the world.
