AMARILLO EDC ANNOUNCES AWARD

Enterprize Challenge Grants $75,000

(Amarillo, TX)  The Amarillo Economic Development Corporation announced this week that it had awarded its top prize to Graham Towerton of G&M Global Enterprises based on his written business plan to help bring additional jobs and economic activity to the Amarillo region.  "This is one of the greatest honors of my life," said Towerton during a brief conversation after the awards ceremony at the EDC's offices at 901 S Fillmore in Amarillo.  "This shows me that Amarillo is ready for new business and is ready to help nurture and finance economic growth and  development in a serious way."
This year's top prize is a $75,000 award which Towerton will use to expand his current custom chemical blending operation.  The additional funding will be used to purchase automated chemical filling equipment and enhance in-house graphic design and printing capabilities for custom labeling and custom branding for customer products.  "When anyone is looking to open a custom chemical blending operation they worry about the cost of land and the cost of transportation.  I looked at many different situations in many different places... and Amarillo offered the perfect location for both our current and future expansion plans.  This award really signals the community's commitment to new ideas and solid business growth."
Towerton's custom chemical packaging operation currently employees four full-time staff members, with additional expansion slated for later this year.  "I think what makes us unique in the industry is our ability to help anyone develop and produce any custom chemical blending task.  We have in-house graphics capabilities and access to established media and marketing consultants... a really great package that can help anyone bring a private labeled or private branded product to market.  I am really grateful that the Amarillo EDC helped us share our vision for continued and strong business development here in the Panhandle."
