Maine medical supply firm wins Inc.’s “Company of the Year”

GUILFORD, Maine (AP) — A Maine manufacturer of medical supplies that have proven critical during the coronavirus pandemic won the “Company of the Year” award from a business magazine.

Inc. magazine bestowed the award on Puritan Medical Products of Guilford. The company has played a key role in diagnostics during the pandemic because it manufactures nasal swabs.

Inc. wrote that Puritan “will have increased its production capacity more than 30-fold within a year.” The company recruited hundreds of employees to meet manufacturing demand, the Maine Department of Labor said Wednesday. It also opened a second facility in Pittsfield.

Maine’s Democratic Gov. Janet Mills said Puritan “embodies the long and proud tradition of Maine businesses stepping up during tumultuous times to meet the needs of our state.”
