Chattanooga, TN (February 4, 2015)- Each year, the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce honors local small businesses who have exhibited exemplary success within their industries. This year, Viatek Consumer Products Group is pleased to announce that they are a finalist in the running for the prestigious Small Business Award!
To qualify for this award, companies must display a high level of corporate citizenship. For the last few years, not only has Viatek expanded its business in Chattanooga, but has become a veritable powerhouse for design, development, and distribution on a global scale. Viatek’s proven formula for success has allowed the company to establish partnerships around the globe and currently distributes products in seventy countries spanning five continents.
Due to high consumer demand for solution-oriented merchandise, Viatek has experienced rapid grow within the 150 billion dollar consumer products market. In addition to their international partners and distribution among major catalogers and retailers, Viatek’s customer base also boasts such retail giants as Wal-Mart, Amazon, Kroger, Home Depot, Target, Home Shopping Network, QVC, CVS, and The Shopping Channel. With a talented team of in-house designers and engineers, Viatek is able to conceptualize and develop more than fifteen proprietary items each year.
While Viatek is committed to developing innovative products, they are also committed to community service. Founder and president Lou Lentine encourages his staff to participate in programs and projects that benefit both local and national charity organizations. This winter, staffers braved the freezing temperatures to run the Red White & Blue 5K to benefit UTC’s Student Veterans Organization. At Christmas, Viatek sponsored four children through the Salvation Army’s Angel Tree project. A member of the management team also sits as Marketing and Public Relations Chairwoman for the Friends of the Chattanooga Library’s Club Lib.
As a nominee, Viatek looks forward to attending the Small Business Awards Luncheon March 25, 2015 and is proud to stand among the 12 finalists locally recognized for their successes.
