  • Wilson's Sleek 4G mobile cellular signal booster was named a winner in the 11th annual Utah Innovation Awards.
  • The Utah Manufacturers Association chose the company as a Workplace Safety Award winner.
  • The Competitive Carriers Association, the trade group for the nation's rural and regional cellular service providers, honored Wilson with an Excellence in Marketing Award.

"We feel these honors reflect the Wilson spirit – we take pride in the products we make, the processes that produce them and the way we tell our story," said Jonathan Bacon, Wilson director of marketing. "We're very honored to be recognized by all three organizations."

The Sleek 4G, named most innovative in the Outdoor & Consumer Products category, boosts signals inside a vehicle for cellular customers whose devices operate on all U.S. carrier 4G networks (except WiMAX). It also amplifies 2G and 3G signals for all major carriers and their legacy voice and data services, which  allows users to enjoy a strong, reliable signal even where 4G service is unavailable.

The UMA cited the company's "meritorious performance in creating a safe workplace environment" in presenting the Workplace Safety Award.

The CCA honored Wilson in the Electronic and Social Media category for an online series of humorous video shorts illustrating the frustrations of cellular customers trying to find a reliable signal. The award winning videos are available for viewing here.
