Vista Technologies LLC (VistaTek), recently received the Small Business of the Year award by the Vadnais Heights (MN) Economic Development Corp. (VHEDC). “This award is more of a reflection of VistaTek’s great employees,” said Dan Mishek, managing director and co-owner of this second-generation manufacturing company. Because they embrace change and remain motivated, we have been able to battle out of this recession and continue our community service in the local region.”
The company was founded in 1996 as a rapid prototyping company. In 2001, VistaTek added mold manufacturing, and in 2007 brought molding in-house, according to Allen Mishek, marketing director. The status quo was not an option for VistaTek, and along with investing time and resources into the local community, VistaTek invested in the company to promote new business growth.
