Last fall, Boston Orthotics & Prosthetics was chosen as Manufacturer of the Year for their region of Massachusetts by the Massachusetts Joint Legislative Manufacturing Caucus, which includes more than 60 legislators from around the Commonwealth who are focused on training for manufacturing employees, encouraging innovation, and expanding manufacturing apprenticeship opportunities.
The winning manufacturers were recognized for their innovative manufacturing capabilities and products, and to honor their commitment to creating and maintaining employment and economic opportunities in the Commonwealth.
On Tuesday, March 5th, State Senator Walter Timilty and Representative Bill Galvin paid a visit to Boston O&P to tour the facility and present the award to Tony Gutierrez, Boston O&P Production Supervisor.
“The dedication that Boston Orthotics & Prosthetics offers to advancing the orthotics and prosthetics industry is truly remarkable,” stated Senator Walter F. Timilty (D-Milton) “Having this impressive manufacturing facility right in the Town of Avon is an incredible asset in both providing employment and economic development to Avon and its’ surrounding communities.”
Boston O&P is a leader in pediatric orthotic and prosthetic services, and has been designing and manufacturing specialized orthoses in the Boston area since its founding in 1975.
Tom Morrissey, President and CEO of Boston O&P adds “We are very proud to receive this prestigious award. Our success as a company is due to the great team of people we have working together every day to make a positive difference in the lives of our patients.”
