WAUCONDA, Ill., April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- MBX Systems, a manufacturer of custom-built OEM server appliances and embedded systems for software vendors and service providers, has been named a finalist in the 7th Annual 2012 Hot Companies and Best Products Awards presented by technology research and advisory publication Network Products Guide. MBX was recognized in the Hot Companies category, which honors organizations for performance and growth.
The recognition marked MBX's fifth accolade in the last nine months. Most recently MBX was named 2012 Quality Plant of the Year by Quality Magazine and featured in the cover story in the publication's March issue.
Since last July, the company has also earned a 2012 Manufacturing Leadership 100 Award from Manufacturing Executive; Customer Service Department of the Year recognition in the Stevie Awards for Sales & Customer Service; and Executive of the Year/Computer Hardware honors in the Stevie Awards' 2011 American Business Awards for founder and CEO Tom Crowley, who has led the company in 16 years of consecutive growth.
MBX's purpose-built appliances provide a reliable alternative to delivering software and media applications via electronic download, virtual instances or in the cloud.
