PMC Hydraulics and Broad Reach Engineering Win Biz Awards

Celebrating the awards from left to right: Joy Chung and Steve Glueck (City of Golden), Chris McCormick (Broad Reach Engineering), Mikkel Johnsen and Eric Akeson (PMC Hydraulics), Renee Rinehimer (Golden Economic Development Commission), and me.

Late last week, as the fire situation (thankfully) began improving dramatically, I attended the annual Jefferson Economic Council breakfast in order to help celebrate the awards received by two terrific Golden companies. PMC Hydraulics – a manufacturer of specialized (and exceptionally cool) hydraulic components for wind turbines – received a Business Recognition Award for their significant economic contributions to Jefferson County. I visited with PMC Hydraulics last year, touring their factory in our Coors Technology Center and learning a lot, PMC’s hydraulic components, the Vestas supply chain, and the statewide economic impact of the new Vestas manufacturing facilities in Colorado. I was also their to support Broad Reach Engineering, a Golden manufacturer of cutting edge spaceflight components and software, which received an Innovative Technology Award for their leadership in the aerospace industry. I visited with Chris and his crew in their downtown office about a year ago as well (although sadly don’t have a blog post up about it). I know the photo is a boring ‘awards banquet’ shot, but the people and technology behind the photo are incredibly exciting and great for Golden.
