The Butler County Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors invites you to ‘celebrate business’ on Wednesday, September 9, 2015, at the Chamber’s ‘Celebrate Business’ Annual Dinner at the Robert M. Smith Student Center on the campus of Slippery Rock University. The event will recognize the accomplishments of local businesses and highlight the activities of the Chamber, our programs and our volunteers. The evening begins at 5:30 p.m. with hors d’oeuvres cocktail party (microbrews courtesy of North Country Brewing Company) and continues with dinner and award presentations. The culinary staff at Slippery Rock Dining Services (AVI Food Systems) has promised a wonderful display of gourmet delicacies.

The Butler County Chamber of Commerce board of Directors is pleased to announce that Nadine Tripodi, Butler Technologies, Inc. has been selected as the recipient of the 2015 William A. Morgan, Jr. Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Butler Technologies, Inc. is a high tech, precision screen printer specializing in the manufacture of membrane switches, graphic overlays, labeling, gauge graphics, insulators, electronic shielding layers, and other product markings. Formed in 1990 by William J. Darney, Jr. and Nadine Tripodi, the company operated as a sales organization, representing various printers, board manufacturers and screen printers. In 1993, the company purchased and renovated a building in the City of Butler and began to manufacture precision screen printed products for instrument and equipment manufacturers.

Beginning with 3 people, employment increased to 55 full-time experienced personnel. The Company has grown steadily over their 25 years in business. The uniqueness of Butler Technologies lies in our commitment to respond to the needs of customers. The focus is on manufacturing a quality product, on time, and at competitive pricing. This is accomplished through attention to detail, from initial sales contact through the manufacture of the finished product. Every employee at Butler Technologies is trained to respond in this manner, and works in accordance with this company philosophy.

The Entrepreneur of the Year Award is presented to an outstanding local business owner and is recommended by the Chamber’s Past President’s Advisory Council along with past award recipients. Past recipients include John Giles, Joe Gray, Bob McCafferty, Tom Graham, John and Tom Buckner, David Lloyd, Richard Musko, William McCarrier, N. Lee Ligo and Matthew Diehl.

During the dinner we also honor the Annual Chamber Business Champion Award, presented to outstanding businesses that display vision, ingenuity, commitment and determination. Congratulations to Concordia Lutheran Ministries as the 2015 Chamber Business Champion. Concordia Lutheran Ministries evolved from a small, safe haven for orphan children founded in 1881 and retains their mission to serve the aging community with the highest quality of services through a continuum of caregiving options provided in a Christian environment, and to serve those with limited funds to the best of their ability. Currently comprising thirteen locations and sixteen facilities, they offer inpatient care or residence in the expansive Concordia family. The numbers are impressive: 22 villas – 532 retirement living apartments – 978 personal care/assisted living (which includes 73 dual licensed for memory support) – 355 skilled nursing – 26 inpatient hospice – 1,913 total units. Through the Good Samaritan Endowment Fund, Concordia Lutheran Ministries cares for many residents each year who do not have sufficient resources to pay for the full cost of their care. Established in the early 1990s, the fund has helped several thousand people meet the expense of the quality health-related services at Concordia.
