"As a persistent and determined organization, MityLite completed a supply chain transformation yielding remarkable results that are keeping and bringing new jobs to the U.S.,” said MityLite President and CEO John Dudash. "This award recognizes the contributions of our dedicated employees and the direct impact of their efforts on MityLite’s success and longevity.”
