In recognition of its contributions to the local economy and community, the Moab Chamber of Commerce has named The Synergy Company as its 2018 Business of the Year.

Synergy was founded in 1992 by Mitchell May as a small home-business. Today it has grown to employ over 75 people, the majority of whom live in Moab. The company’s award-winning facility in Moab manufactures over 30 certified organic vitamins and dietary supplements, which are sold all over the world.

“We deeply care about our neighbors and our community, and we also know we owe much of our success to the dedication and hard work of our family of Moab employees. We feel a very real responsibility to our employees, and we both honor and reward their service to us with our continued commitment to them, and our commitment to remaining in this locale as we grow,” said May.

A press release from the chamber of commerce describes The Synergy Company’s commitment to supporting Moab’s nonprofit organizations. The company has a “community outreach team” that is tasked with overseeing annual donations, grants and scholarships. The press release also touts the unique “employee’s choice” program, which makes a meaningful donation on behalf of every employee to a local nonprofit of their choice.

Organizations that have benefitted from Synergy’s generosity include the Moab Free Health Clinic, BEACON afterschool programs, Seekhaven, the Moab Valley Multicultural Center and the Youth Garden Project.

Two years ago, the Synergy Company started a program of donating shoes to students in need at Helen M. Knight Elementary School. To date, the program has donated over 80 pairs of shoes.

“Against the advice of business experts and financial advisors, The Synergy Company has established their business in our small town… They serve as an example to industry giants, who travel from around the world to see how this small-town factory can be an industry leader for quality and innovation,”said the chamber’s press release. “Home-grown, successful, influential and inspirational, The Synergy Company is, above all, dedicated to Moab’s economy and community.”
