Two Spokane manufacturers honored by AWB

Two Spokane-based manufacturing companies were among seven honored Wednesday night by the Association of Washington Business (AWB).  

Hotstart Inc., a 60-year-old company that makes engine block heaters for diesel locomotives, was honored for innovation.

Sonderen Packaging Inc., which makes paperboard and cardboard cartons, was named “green manufacturer” of the year because of practices such as buying materials certified by sustainable forestry organizations and using soy-based printing inks.


The manufacturing awards were presented in conjunction with the first Inland Manufacturing Expo, sponsored by Greater Spokane Inc.

AWB said in a news release, “Despite grave economic challenges, each of these seven companies has continued to find new and better ways to deliver a better product, improve production and find ways to conserve resources.”
