UTICA, N.Y. -- Hundreds of business leaders gathered at SUNY Poly to recognize companies helping to expand the region's economy and job growth.

Mohawk Valley Edge honored six local companies for their leadership, economic growth, and innovation.

Danfoss Silicon Power, Doubletree by Hilton, Idea NY, Square One Coating Systems, Tractor Supply Company, and the Westwood Utica.

Lawrence Gilroy was also honored with the Christopher Destito Leading Edge Award for his lifelong commitment to better the Mohawk Valley.

“It's important that a community recognizes it's not just business. Its business, its education, its industry all coming together to make that difference. One can't operate without the other,” said Mohawk Valley EDGE Chief Administrative Shawna Papale.

There were also 20 high school students on hand who were given the opportunity to learn about these companies in an effort to assist them in putting an education plan together for themselves.
