Salt Lake City, Utah, October 17, 2017 – Today at the Utah Global Forum Meeting, held at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City, Utah, Ultradent Products, Inc., accepted the award for 2017 International Company of the Year, presented by KeyBank and the World Trade Association. Each year business and political leaders from around the state gather at the Utah Global Forum meeting to present and learn about developing international business and export strategy, as well as tap into new markets. The International Company of the Year Award honors one company and one individual each year for excellence in these areas, as well as global citizenship and humanitarianism. Nominations for International Company of the Year are submitted only by parties not employed or affiliated with the nominee.
Accepting the award on behalf of the company, Dr. Dan Fischer, Ultradent founder and CEO, said, "Ultradent wasn't just founded by me, it was founded by family, and we're proud to have maintained that family feeling as the company has grown throughout the decades to include 1,600 employees in offices in ten countries around the world, including our home office in South Jordan, Utah." He went on to say, "We believe in the opposite of outsourcing. We do our own R&D, our own machining, our own injection molding, and our own primary and secondary packaging and mailing. We're proud to say that 95% of what we sell, we manufacture ourselves, and we're also proud to say that 70% of what we manufacture is exported beyond our U.S. borders to over 100 countries."
Special guest speakers at the Utah Global Forum meeting event included Utah Governor Gary Herbert; CNN, ABC News, and Telemundo Political Contributor and GOP Strategist, Ana Navarro; as well as many other influential business and civic leaders throughout the country and state.
