Company recognized for creating jobs, opportunities in North Florida

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — B&C Technologies has received the Governor’s Business Ambassador Award for its commitment to creating jobs and opportunities in North Florida, the company reports.

Florida Gov. Rick Scott recognized B&C along with two other companies on March 18 during a meeting of the Florida Cabinet. Bengt Bruce, president of B&C, was presented with a medal for the achievement.

“This will encourage our company to do better and provide more jobs for Florida, especially since we are expanding our business in Panama City with a production of high-technology small-piece towel folders for the laundry industry,” says Bruce.

B&C Technologies opened in Panama City Beach in 1995 with two employees, and has since grown to 25 employees, the company reports. It operates a 60,000-square-foot-facility in Panama City Beach and has plans to relocate to a 70,000-square-foot facility in the next six months.

“With Florida’s unemployment down to 6.1% and more than 500,000 private-sector jobs created since December 2010, businesses like B&C Technologies help Florida continue to create an opportunity economy,” says Scott.
