Critical Matters: MCS Wins 2023 Bedford County Economic Development Award

It’s with great honor that we announce Mission Critical Solutions has been awarded the 2023 Bedford County Economic Development Award!  This recognition is a testament to the dedication and hard work of our entire team. It’s in these moments that we are able to take a step back and appreciate what we, as a company and team, have built in the heart of Bedford County. 

At Mission Critical Solutions, we have always believed in the power of economic development. We understand that thriving businesses don’t just benefit themselves; they also serve as engines of growth for the communities they call home. This award reaffirms our commitment to making a positive impact on our local economy and we are grateful to be recognized for our efforts. 

As we accept this award, we are reminded that our work is far from over. Economic development is an ongoing process, one that requires adaptability, innovation and a sense of responsibility. We are dedicated to doing our part to create jobs and promote sustainable growth in our region. 

 “We are honored to accept this award,” said Darin Mauzy, Vice President of Operations. “We have worked closely with BCDA over the past few years, striving to help promote the community we call home.” 

Mauzy says while this award is one of several highlights as we celebrate our 15th anniversary, we still have more to do. 

“This award is reassurance that our efforts as a company don’t go unnoticed. With that being said, we are quick to remind ourselves, the work isn’t over. We will continue working tirelessly day-in and day-out to build a better company, better county, and better future.” 

Bette Slayton, President & CEO of Bedford County Development Association was asked about the prestigious award. 

“It’s an honor for BCDA to select MCS for the 2023 Economic Development Award,” Slayton said. “MCS is a long-time, valued Bedford County employer with a reputation for creating world class products, providing high quality jobs and appreciating its employees. We applaud the phenomenal growth of MCS and credit it to an astute leadership team and talented, committed employees. We also appreciate the company’s strong support of local community initiatives. Congratulations to our friends at MCS and thank you for being an important part of our business community.” 

This award belongs to every member of the Mission Critical Solutions family, past and present. It is a symbol of our shared commitment to excellence and the pursuit of a better future. We are proud to be part of Bedford County and we pledge to continue our work in support of the economic development of our region. Thank you once again for this honor and we look forward to a future filled with continued growth, collaboration, and prosperity.
