The Greater Akron Chamber has named winners of its 2016 Excellence in Business Award. They were recognized at an event Thursday morning at the Sheraton Suites on Front Street in Cuyahoga Falls.



An item in Thursday's Beacon Journal incorrectly said the awards event was Thursday evening. The mistake was made by a reporter.



The chamber said winners of the award demonstrate “outstanding performance, growth, staying power, innovation” and also “provide leadership in the community.”





The award winners are Laudan Properties, a property management company in Twinsburg; Pritt Entertainment Group, a video production and marketing enterprise in Akron; and Securitec One, Inc.; a provider of security systems in Sharon Township. USA Firmware, a product design and consulting services company in Brecksville won the Emerging Business Award.
