CLEVELAND - NSL Analytical Services Inc. was among a select group of 101 Northeast Ohio mid-sized companies that were recognized at The 2013 Leading EDGE Awards on May 23 at Lorain County Community College in Elyria, OH. The Entrepreneurs EDGE, a Northeast Ohio economic development group, developed the award to recognize value-creating mid-sized companies in the region. Qualifying companies operate within the 17 counties of Northeast Ohio and generate revenues up to $750 million, a portion of which must be outside the region.

Honored companies were identified by the value they create in the regional economy, based on a sum of their EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes) and total taxable compensation for all Northeast Ohio-based employees.

"We have worked hard to support companies from all industries with their testing needs to help them produce high-quality and safe products," said Larry Somrack, President of NSL Analytical Services Inc. "It is a real honor to be part of this esteemed group of companies that are helping to make Northeast Ohio a great place to grow a business. I want to thank the talented people who work for NSL who made this award possible."
