The AWB Innovation Award highlights significant progress in designing, developing and delivering a blockbuster product concept.
“We are pleased to honor them as examples of what Washington State’s manufacturers can accomplish,” Johnson said. “Their hard work and creative thinking is helping make Washington a better place for all of us.” AWB states that the winner of this award has maintained a competitive advantage by sustaining considerable innovation while remaining responsive to market demands and that the products made in the winner’s facility are unique and innovative.
TigerStop was founded in a garage in 1994 by Spencer Dick, who as the owner of a thriving manufacturing business, became frustrated with the inherent inefficiencies of his machine operators stopping to reset and recalibrate whenever they were cutting material to various lengths. He also noticed that regardless of how carefully material was measured, the end results were always of slightly different dimensions. Spencer founded TigerStop to automate the cutting process so that exact and accurate parts, whether metal, aluminum, plastic or wood, would result each and every time.
TigerStop has sold over 30,000 machines worldwide and has a unit in use in the White House. TigerStop is committed to using local sourcing and talent in its production facilities, with scholarships and educational reimbursement programs to help encourage lifelong learning. Active in many charity service projects, TigerStop is proud to manufacture innovative products and to help build better communities.
