Antunes Honored As Illinois Family Business Of The Year
Antunes was named the 2017 Family Business of the Year in the large company category by the Family Business Center at Loyola University Chicago's Quinlan School of Business. The awards recognize Illinois-based companies with a strong commitment to both business and family.
“We are deeply honored to be recognized with this award, building on the legacy started by August J. Antunes more than 60 years ago,” says CEO Glenn Bullock. “All of our team members are an extension of the Antunes family, and we pride ourselves on having a culture where everyone is working together toward a common goal: making our customers successful.”
“This recognition represents a milestone for our family and for the company,” said Jane Antunes Bullock, V.P.-Administration at the Carol Stream, Ill., manufacturer. “What started as a small Chicago-based manufacturers’ representative business has grown into a successful business with more than 300 employees working to provide equipment for operations in more than 150 countries—all while keeping family at the heart of what we do.”
The two executives accepted the award in November at the Illinois Family Business of the Year Awards gala in Chicago.
