PORTLAND, Ore., March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Swagelok Northwest, a leading supplier of fluid system products and solutions for a number of industries, including semiconductor, oil and gas, and pulp and paper, was recognized as one of the "100 Best Companies to Work for in Oregon" yesterday evening at an awards dinner hosted by Oregon Business.  Swagelok Northwest ranked fifth in the medium-sized business category.

More than 13,000 employees from 273 companies participated in the program, which measures companies in the areas of work environment, management and communications, decision-making and trust, career development and learning, and benefits and compensation.  This is the first year Swagelok Northwest participated in the list's 20-year history.

"Swagelok Northwest is a values-driven company with a culture of permanent employment and community involvement," said Jim Trolinger, principal.  "We're a family here, not just a business, and like a family, we push each other to be the best we are capable: Better colleagues, better workers, better community members and better people.  I'm proud of our associates for their commitment to making Swagelok Northwest such a great place to work."

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
