– AMX® has once again been named a "Best Place to Work In America." This is the third year in a row that AMX has been included in this prestigious ranking.
RICHARDSON, Texas – June 26, 2008
The Best Places to Work Award list was announced this week by the Society for Human Resource Management or (SHRM) and selected and ranked by the Great Place to Work® Institute (GPTW), which works with FORTUNE Magazine, HR Magazine and other leading publications in 29 countries around the world to publish and recognize employer excellence. AMX was proudly named number eight to the list of the top 25 mid-sized companies in the U.S. for 2008.
"It is fantastic that we achieved an even higher level of success this year. When you consider our explosive growth over the past several years including six acquisitions, doubling our number of employees, and achieving record sales, I am extremely proud that our corporate culture - which encompasses our strong customer commitment along with a positive, enthusiastic attitude toward everything we do - has remained intact," said Rashid Skaf, AMX President and CEO. "Through the dedication and commitment of our employees, this award again proves that great employees do make a great company."
AMX has continued to pursue an accelerated growth path since last year's ranking – including several new acquisitions, more than 120 product introductions and an increase in our international expansion. Last week, AMX announced that it acquired Atrium Group Developments Ltd. This is the sixth acquisition for the company in less than two years.
