STREATOR IL, April 14, 2016 – Stertil ALM, has been honored with the Manufacturing/Industry award from the Streator Area Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The award, which represents the second time Stertil ALM has received this accolade, was presented at a gala dinner recently, hosted by the Chamber and attended by the Mayor of Streator, Jimmy Lansford.
“Stertil ALM is an outstanding business in our community and we are very pleased to recognize their contributions,” said Jack Dzuris, the executive director of the Streator Area Chamber of Commerce.
Dzuris commended the company for providing years of steady employment. In fact, Stertil ALM is the area’s third largest employer. The company also regularly brings in visitors from North America and Europe to get hands-on with its equipment and receive training on the broad range of heavy duty vehicle lifts produced in Streator. In turn, these guests help support and stimulate the local economy.
It’s all about being a good neighbor and giving back. In fact, over the past few years, Stertil ALM has undergone a major expansion, purchasing 4.8 acres of land and adding 36,000 square feet of work space. About 20 jobs have been added. The company previously won the Manufacturing/Industry award from the Chamber in 2012.
Noted Allan Pavlick, Vice President of Stertil ALM, “This is a great community to work in. We are proud to be recognized for excellence by our host community.”
