Leyard and Planar Win Oregon Technology Association Award
At the Oregon Technology Awards ceremony on May 11, 2018 Leyard and Planar were named “Influential Technology Company Not Headquartered in Oregon” by the Technology Association of Oregon (TAO). The awards celebrate the region's vibrant technology industry by honoring local individuals and companies for their accomplishments, leadership and commitment to excellence within the industry and community.
This year’s celebration was the largest awards ceremony in the organization’s 34 year history with more than 600 entrepreneurs and tech professionals. New Relic and Sensory were also nominated in the non-headquartered category.
Leyard and Planar were chosen because of the unique approach to market innovation, competitive advantage with solution-oriented sales strategy and strong satisfaction with customers. The TAO also looked at Leyard and Planar’s commitment to employee engagement, community involvement and contributions to Oregon’s tech evolution. Recent accolades from the Portland Business Journal (including “Manufacturer of the Year” in 2017 and “One of Oregon's Most Admired Companies of 2016”) and Best of Show awards at industry events including Integrated Systems Europe 2018, Digital Signage Expo 2018 and NAB 2018 also contributed to the award win by demonstrating the company’s strengths as a local business and within the ProAV industry.
The award ceremony was covered by The Oregonian.
