In response to the honor, Faustson Vice President Heidi Hostetter said, “We couldn’t be more honored to receive this recognition. It’s truly an honor and, as noted at the awards ceremony, this is Colorado’s award; we merely accepted it. Thanks to Manufacturer’s Edge, School of Mines, OEDIT, Ball and Lockheed and certainly to all the employees of Faustson for their hard work and efforts to make these ideas a reality.”

Faustson was nominated for its long history of leading its field in innovation. Faustson won the award for demonstrating outstanding leadership in building a practical research center in Colorado that provides testing, performance analysis, and materials knowledge for 3D metal printed parts; especially as those parts apply to aerospace and advanced manufacturing.
All nominees were evaluated by entrepreneurial community leaders and Innovation Pavilion partnership organizations. Selection criteria were based on a peer review of a company’s outstanding contribution to advancing innovation in Colorado.
About the awards ceremony, Vic Ahmed, Innovation Pavilion Founder and CEO, said “Since our founding, it has been our mission and vision to recognize and promote leaders in our entrepreneurial community. It is our honor to highlight these nominees in our newest expansion location, Parker, CO. This event has brought together leaders from every sector of our community- businesses, government, and non-profits. These productive collisions are what make Colorado such a special place that promotes problem solving, collaboration, and innovation”.
