Each year, Fairleigh Dickinson University’s Rothman Institute of Innovation and Entrepreneurship coordinates with other companies to honor New Jersey’s best family businesses. In conjunction with sponsors and previous recipients, representatives from the Rothman Institute review dozens of nominations and select the finest family businesses in the state. Once again, Triangle was selected as an honoree in the sales over $10 million group. It is the most prestigious acknowledgment of the power of family business in the State of New Jersey.
In 1955, William Strohmeyer left his job as a machine shop engineer in the aerospace industry and founded Triangle Manufacturing. More than 66 years later, Triangle has become a leading provider of instrumentation and implantable devices for all facets of the medical industry. Willie’s grandson Dax, a third-generation Strohmeyer, is now the CEO leading the extended “family” of 170 Triangle associates in four state-of-the-art-facilities in Upper Saddle River, NJ. The “roll up your sleeves and get it done” spirit that Willie fostered still thrives at Triangle today.
The 29th Annual Family Business of the Year Awards Luncheon took place on October 27, 2021 at the Glen Ridge Country Club.
