Bainbridge company recognized for ingenuity


Ozone International LLC. makes products that keep food processors clean and safe.

This week the Bainbridge Island company was recognized for efforts to make its own organization cleaner and leaner.

The Association of Washington Businesses announced Ozone International as the recipient of its annual Operational Excellence Award for manufacturers. In the announcement, AWB highlighted the companies success in streamlining its production processes.

Over the past two years, Ozone improved efficiency by 25 percent and increased capacity by 80 percent, while cutting production time from 27 days to nine days per unit, according to a news release.

The company also reduced overtime costs by spreading work from its busy seasons to slower times of the year, and heightened safety for employees.

Ozone was founded in 2003. It creates ozone-based sanitization systems for food and beverage producers.
