North Sutton, NH--At an awards ceremony held in Orlando, FL, Labsphere was named Company of the Year by its parent company, United Kingdom-based Halma plc. The annual award recognizes the company with the best all-around performance of the 40 Halma Group companies worldwide. While one of the criteria is significant growth in sales and profits, the award also takes into account good governance and overall management of engineering and manufacturing.

Labsphere provides integrating sphere system technology to global customers seeking solutions for light measurement, remote sensing, reflectance spectroscopy, and optical coatings and materials. "Since being acquired by Halma plc, Labsphere has made great strides in overcoming global economic turmoil, to achieve record sales and earnings during the last two years," said Kevin Chittim, president of Labsphere for the past four years. "More important, however, are the substantial investments in automation, process improvement, and people development (for which we also received the top corporate award). It is both a humbling and uplifting occasion to be singled out as the best-of-the-best in the forty company Halma family of companies."

In addition to the Halma Company of the Year Award, Labsphere was recognized for two other achievements: Organic Sales Growth and People Development. Labsphere has demonstrated a continuous investment in personnel development and innovation, resulting in improvements to its manufacturing operations and world class customer service.
