Wyle Information Systems’ Aerospace group was named recently as the Patuxent Partnership’s Member Firm of the Year as part of the 11th Annual Leading Edge Awards Ceremony. The division’s headquarters, located in Lexington Park, Md., received the award based on the firm’s contribution to economic growth and community involvement within the Southern Maryland region.
“Our Patuxent River office in Lexington Park and Telemetry and Data Systems business unit in California, Md., are focused on service ““ providing trusted agent services to our customers, service to our co-workers and service to our community,” said Pete Green, Wyle’s Aerospace Group president.
“When you make service your guiding principle everything else just naturally follows,” he added. “This is the value that has shaped our company culture and what has helped us grow over the past 25-plus years in Southern Maryland. Our commitment to service is also what enabled us to experience 10 percent growth and have the ability to give back to our community in 2010.”
