BALTIMORE, Sept. 18, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Sinclair Broadcast Group (NASDAQ: SBGI) is pleased to announce its wholly owned subsidiary Dielectric, a leading provider of innovative broadcast products, was named one of 2019's Best Places to Work in Maine by the Society for Human Resource Management of Maine and Best Companies Group.
The annual survey and awards program was designed to identify and honor companies that have consistently fostered outstanding workplace environments, ultimately benefiting the state's workforce and economy. The 2019 list is made up of 100 companies, with Dielectric recognized in the medium size (50-249 employees) category.
"We are truly honored and proud that Dielectric has been named as a best place to work. It is a direct reflection of the talented, hardworking employees and dedicated leadership team," said Keith Pelletier, vice president and GM of Dielectric. "This prestigious award will benefit Dielectric with future recruitment activities, help with sales initiatives, further enhance morale and strengthen the positive company culture."
With roots dating to 1942, Dielectric helped pioneer the broadcast age and has earned a reputation for offering the world's most sophisticated antenna and signal-transmission solutions. As an industry leader, Dielectric is committed to serving the needs of U.S. broadcasters participating in the multi-year FCC spectrum-reallocation program, the TV Channel Repack, in addition to supporting deployments of the new ATSC 3.0 standard and continuing to supply products built in Maine to global broadcast and scientific markets. Since opening its new facility in Lewiston, Maine, less than two years ago, Dielectric has increased its workforce – including engineers critical to the company growth – as it seeks new solutions for the industry.
