VanDyne has won several awards, grants and development contracts, and in 2010 was named Cleantech Emerging Company of the Year by the Colorado Cleantech Industry Association (CCIA).
“The flex office space at Centerra is designed to accommodate research and development demands, in addition to creating environments in which companies can easily expand,” stated Ron Kuehl, McWhinney Vice-president of Real Estate. “A leading cleantech company like VanDyne SuperTurbo™ is a perfect fit at Centerra and we had the available space to match their immediate requirements,” added Kuehl.
