Tech business earns top recognition

Superior Controls Inc. of Seabrook was recently named “Manufacturing/Technology Business of the Year 2013” by Business NH Magazine.

Superior Controls is a leading provider of custom automation and information technology systems for the biotech, food and beverage, and energy industries. Since 1993, the company successfully automated and implemented more than 400 validated automation systems for the biotech industry, winning multiple awards from leading life sciences and food and beverage manufacturers.

“We are very proud to receive this honor,” Rick Pierro, president of Superior Controls, said in a statement. “As with any recognition, this award is a reflection of Superior Controls’ continuing commitment to put our customers’ needs first, while also being good corporate citizens to the communities in which we live and work.”

The award also acknowledges the leadership Pierro has assumed as trustee of the NH High Tech Leadership Council and board member of the regional chapter of International Society of Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE). Superior Controls is recognized for its extensive civic and charitable support, including local fire and police organizations, Girls Scouts and Boy Scouts of America, and the Cystic Fibrosis and Muscular Dystrophy Associations.

On Sunday, residents and visitors will have a chance to honor those who gave their lives for their country at the commemorative services, while also enjoying the town’s annual Memorial Day parade.

Seabrook officials and its American Legion Post 70 hold Memorial Day service Sunday morning at 9 a.m. at the Smithtown War Memorial at Trinity United Church, located in front of Town Hall.

Following the service, the parade steps off from Town Hall heading down Walton Road to Washington Street, and South Main Street to Rand Memorial Church and Wildwood cemetery, where closing services will be held.

The parade is again shaping up to be a great event, and will include members of the town’s police and fire departments, selectmen and state representatives, along with floats and four bands: the Winnacunett High School Band, Ancient Order of Hibernians Bagpipe Band, the Muchachos Drum and Bugle Corps and the Sons of Italy Bugle Corps.
