A.G. Stacker’s SVTC Innovation in Utilization Award was presented May 4 at the council’s TechNite at James Madison University.

A.G. Stacker won the Shenandoah Valley Technology Council (SVTC) 2022 Innovation in Utilization Award, which was presented during the SVTC’s 22nd Annual TechNite Ceremony at James Madison University on May 4.

“A big thank-you to our team and technology vendors for the work they do every day to bring this technology solution to market,” said A.G. Stacker President Joe Wunder. “We also want to thank Dynamic Aviation as the official sponsor of this award category and the SVTC for bringing awareness to the technology being developed in the valley. Our biggest reward is being able to offer innovative solutions that effectively meet the needs of our converter customers and the corrugated industry. Our team is committed to innovation because of their commitment to customers, and it’s humbling to have their work recognized among the tech leaders in our community.”

This past spring, the company was nominated for the Innovation in Utilization category following its new digital twin assets and solutions, released during fall 2021. The Innovation in Utilization award “recognizes outstanding commercial growth and achievement by an established company that produces high tech products or services … where technology itself is not the core business purpose.”

For 22 years, the SVTC has recognized and awarded the achievements of local, technology-focused businesses, programs, and initiatives. Innovations are recognized in eight categories: Emerging Business, Community Impact, K–12 Education, Higher Education, Development, Utilization, Leadership, and People’s Choice.
