Balsam Lake – May 21, 2013
Core Products International, Inc. was recognized by the Polk County Economic Development Corporation for its contributions to economic and community development in Polk County. The Award was presented by Steve Healy, Executive Director of Polk County Economic Development Corporation, during PCEDC’s Business Awards Luncheon at Paradise Landing, in Balsam Lake Tuesday, May 21. Phil Mattison CEO accepted the award on behalf of Core Products International, Inc.
Core Products, which is based in Osceola, Wisconsin, has been a fixture in Polk County since moving from Minnesota in 1998. Since that time, it has manufactured and assembled high quality, professional health care products in Wisconsin.
“We are thrilled to accept this award from the EDC,” said Philip Mattison, CEO of Core Products. “We have been proud to call Polk County home for the last 15 years, and we hope to spend many more here as we continue to work toward our goal of improving health and comfort in our customers’ lives.”
Core Products moved from Minnesota when Ken McAdams with Forward Wisconsin, toured owner Philip Mattison around several communities and introduced us to the business leaders in each community. “He explained the tax benefits and financing opportunities then introduced us to the people in the state that put all these programs together,” said Mattison.
Core Products partner Hollywog’s innovative WiTouch® and WiTouch Pro® were recently recognized as “Best of the Best” in the category of product design at the prestigious 2013 Red Dot
Design Awards. Core Products is the exclusive U.S. distributor of the unique wireless devices, which incorporate TENS technology to specifically target back pain.
“The recognition that we at Core Products and our partners have recently received just solidifies our commitment to providing our customers at home and abroad with products of the absolute highest quality,” said Mattison. “While it is an honor to be recognized, the real satisfaction comes from knowing that the products we provide make a positive impact on the quality of life of our customers.”
The Polk County EDC was formed in 2004 to build and maintain a strong economic base in Polk County through local business growth and expansion throughout Polk County.
