Family Owned and Closely Operated Business Awards
January 5, 2010 – San Diego, California
Happy Heinys, one of the largest manufacturers of modern reusable cloth diapers, is proud to officially announce they have been selected to be a recipient of the Honoree Awards for the San Diego Family Owned and Closely Held Business Awards.
“This is a very special award for Happy Heinys and the owners and family members who work with us to receive,” states Linda Byerline, CEO. “This company was founded due to the medical needs of our youngest child Sarah who was born prematurely. When the decision to take this originally small home business and turn it into a full fledge “real” business was made, it was made on the principles that family and local businesses were most important.” Happy Heinys has strived to continue with those same principles today, 8 years later. As other similar businesses are taking their manufacturing over-seas to China, the owners of Happy Heinys refuse to follow suit stating, “the lack of quality control when product production is out of your hands is next to zero. It is well known that the USA tends to produce higher quality goods and it is our desire to manufacture only the highest quality reusable diaper we can,” explains Byerline.
About the Family Owned and Small Business Awards:
San Diego Business Journal celebrates and recognizes San Diego’s family-owned and closely held businesses. The award honors those with familial ties as well as those having 3 or less individuals who own more than 50% of the business. Some of the items taken into consideration in choosing the Honorees are: the size of business, amount of family working in the business, and charitable contributions. There were a total of 46 finalists and in the small business category there were just 3 Honorees that included MLB Industries Inc dba (doing business as) Happy Heinys.
