New Way Named Finalist for American Business Award

New Way® Air Bearings Named As American Business Award ‘Stevie’ Finalist For Brand-Building Web Site

Aston, Pennsylvania, USA, June 10, 2008 — New Way Air Bearings has been announced as a finalist for a ‘Stevie’ in The Sixth Annual American Business Awards. The Aston, Pennsylvania-based company is being considered for its brand-building web site, launched on January 15, 2008.

The American Business Awards are the only national, all-encompassing awards program honoring great performances in business. Global Sponsor of the 2008 Stevie Awards is Dow Jones. Over 2,600 entries were submitted for consideration in more than 40 categories, including the ‘Brand Building/Promotion’ category in which New Way is competing.

“The American Business Awards are the Oscars of the business world,” noted Nick Hackett, New Way Air Bearings President and CEO. “As a small manufacturing company, we’re proud to be included as a finalist with global brands like GE (ecomagination), LeapFrog Interactive, Oce Business Services, Jack Daniels, Electronic Arts, Terremark, and others. It is quite a statement about the growth of the New Way brand.”

Finalists were selected by business professionals nationwide during more than five weeks of preliminary judging. Nicknamed ‘Stevie’ for the Greek word “crowned,” the coveted award was designed by the same company that makes the Emmy and other major awards.

Stevie winners will be announced during a gala event at New York’s Marriott Marquis Hotel on Thursday, June 12. Ceremonies will be broadcast live nationwide on radio, and simulcast worldwide via the internet, by the Business TalkRadio Network at 7:50pm on that date. (The 5:00pm ceremony will be taped and broadcast at 12:00 pm ET on Saturday 6/14.)

“It took our entire company working together with some trusted creative partners to build this site,” said Michael Wright, New Way Director of Marketing. “Schmidt Advertising and Design was instrumental in the development of our user interface and navigation strategy, Codrian enabled us to implement an effective CMS system, and NanoSPRINT helped us to build some wonderful animations that put our products into context for engineers worldwide.”

“It’s all about communication,” Wright concluded. “And ensuring that our customers understand the value that the New Way brand can bring them.”
