SEL Receives 2023 Top Project of the Year Award for PCB Factory
PULLMAN, Washington— Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories (SEL), a global leader in products and solutions that protect and control electric power systems, earned the 2023 Top Project of the Year award by the Idaho Business Review last week at Idaho’s 2023 Top Projects award ceremony in Boise. The SEL printed circuit board (PCB) factory at Schwartz Campus in Moscow, Idaho, was selected for the top honor from 36 construction projects in Idaho.
According to an Idaho Business Review Editor Matt Lutz, Idaho's 2023 Top Projects awards celebrate construction projects, developers and contractors that have gone above and beyond. Winners are selected due to their ability to overcome challenges, adhere to budget/time constraints and provide quality products and services.
“SEL employee owners from across our company worked hard and collaborated with many to get this project done—all on our own dime without any help from the government,” said SEL Founder and President Edmund O. Schweitzer, III. “We committed to each other to do it right, and now we are safely producing the highest-quality printed circuit boards in the cleanest plant, using the fewest resources that science and engineering afford us today. This is $100M of employee owners’ money well spent on creating our future right here in America.”
Winners were selected by an expert panel of local judges, including representatives from academia, the business sector and industry associations. Projects were judged based on the following criteria:
- Scope of work
- Challenges and obstacles
- Budget and schedule
- Overall quality
SEL has been recognized for its commitment to ensuring the factory and processes are at the forefront of innovative and environmentally friendly PCB fabrication. The company recently received the 2023 Environmental Excellence Award from the Idaho Association of Commerce and Industry and was named a 2023 Pollution Prevention Champion by the Idaho Department of Environmental Quality.
