Elk Grove Village, Ill. – Nov. 17, 2016 – Electrical, industrial, and generator distributor Steiner Electric Company has been recognized by Loyola University of Chicago’s Quinlan School of Business as its Illinois Large Family Business of the Year 2016.
The Quinlan School rates local family-owned firms on business success, multi-generational involvement, contributions to industry and community, and innovative business practices and strategies. Independent judges select one winner in each of three business-size categories, large, medium and small, based on number of employees.
“The Steiner team is very proud to receive this honor,” said Rick Kerman, president and CEO of Steiner.
“We are grateful for our valued customers, suppliers and employees, all of whom have contributed to our success over these last hundred years.”
Kerman’s grandfather, George Steiner, founded the company in 1916. Rick and his father Harold were partners for 35 years. “Today, the third and fourth generation of Steiner descendants operate with the same commitment and core values that George and Harold brought to the business,” Kerman added. “We’re investing and innovating for the next hundred years with products, services and social responsibility.”
