Congratulations to Mimi Crawford, the 2020 Order of George Lifetime Civic Achievement Award Recipient!

Crayex President and CEO Mimi Crawford was awarded the Order of George Lifetime Civic Achievement Award at the Piqua Area Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Dinner on January 16th, 2020! 

The Order of George is Piqua’s highest and most prestigious award, and is presented annually to honor an individual who has demonstrated exemplary volunteer and community service.

Mimi is the 3rd member of the Crayex family to receive this honor, a first for the award. This also marks the first time a father and daughter have both won, as Cliff Alexander received the Order of George in 1985.

Congratulations Mimi, everyone here at Crayex is proud of you, and the example you set in our community!

Piqua High School students took a photography class field trip to Crayex!

Piqua High School students took a photography class field trip to Crayex!

Last Friday, December 6th, Crayex had the opportunity to host PHS Students to help them with a graphic design project for a Media Arts class!

The students plan to practice their graphic design skills by building a poster that features our logo and mission statement on it. Once the design has been approved the final project will be printed on their vinyl printer and hung in the PHS back hallway by their manufacturing lab.

We, at Crayex, feel that educational opportunities within the workplace are extremely important to enhanced student learning. Manufacturing needs to be part of the conversation. Contrary to current debate, small business entrepreneurs create the largest share of new jobs within the U.S. and Manufacturing provides a significantly higher average wage than the Service sector.

“Cheers!” to the Flat Plastic Wine Bottle That’s Perfect for Shipping!

“Cheers!” to the Flat Plastic Wine Bottle That’s Perfect for Shipping!

The wine bottle may be nothing new, but a new “flattened” PET bottle is taking the U.K. by storm, and has even been recognized by Dow as a Diamond finalist in it’s 2018 Awards for Packaging Innovation.

The demand for this new bottle came from a simple problem: The wine industry was losing nearly 100 million dollars a year in failed home deliveries. With the rise of e-commerce this was a problem that was only going to get bigger. “The idea was catalyzed by the need to solve a specific, clear problem of home delivery in the U.K.” said Santiago Navarro, the CEO and Co-Foudner of Garçon Wines. continue reading

This Month’s Employee Spotlight falls on Sandy Lotz!

This Month’s Employee Spotlight falls on Sandy Lotz!

Posted on June 7, 2018 by in News, Uncategorized with no comments

Sandy has been with the Crayex family for 19 years, and as the receptionist she is often the first person a visitor will see when walking into our Piqua, Ohio offices. Sandy originally started her career through a temp agency who thought she would be a good fit, but it was the family oriented nature of Crayex that drew her to stay.

When she isn’t greeting people on the phone or in person at the office, Sandy enjoys spending time with her children, or four grandchildren; Bryce, Brynn, Kingston and Konner. In fact, you can usually find Sandy attending their sporting events, or at the United Methodist Church in Jackson Center where she and her husband Bruce are members.

We thank Sandy for serving as the smiling face of Crayex for almost 2 decades, and we hope she stays a part of the Crayex family for many more years to come!
