“This was a really fun experience for us,” said Luke Jordan, Electro Acoustics, “It’s just been really affirming that all the work our people have done and the impact that we’ve had on the community has been recognized.”

“Small businesses are a key indicator of a region’s economic health,” said Brittany Brookens, the Chamber’s Director of Small Business, “the Forte Awards provides a platform to showcase and promote the incredible work they do in the Fort Worth area.

The competition – formerly known as Small Business of the Year – is categorized by industry rather than the number of employees. Categories were Emerging Business, Manufacturing/Distribution and Professional Services. The category winners, aside from Electro Acoustics, were Emerging Business (up to three years): DPC Healthcare and Manufacturing/Distribution: All American Tire Recyclers.

Electro Acoustics was the category winner in the Professional Services category.
