Optimum Vehicle Logistics has been named a 2013 Future 50 company by the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce’s Council of Small Business Executives (COSBE) for the third year.

The Future 50 programme, now in its 26th year, recognises privately-owned companies in the seven-county Milwaukee region that have been in business for at least three years and have shown significant revenue and employment growth.

COSBE executive director Mary Steinbrecher said:"It is always encouraging to see such a strong group of applicants and winners in this programme each year. These companies truly represent the future of our region."

The Future 50 companies will be honored at an awards luncheon on Thursday, 19 September from 11:30am to 1:30pm at The Pfister Hotel in downtown Milwaukee. The luncheon will be hosted by the MMAC, COSBE and BizTimes Media. To register to attend, visit
