MARCY, N.Y. – Mountainside Medical Equipment was honored at the 2019 Family Business Awards of CNY, claiming top honors in the Veteran-Owned Family Business category. The company’s founder Martin Zarnock, Sr. is a service-disabled military veteran, having served as a Sergeant in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War.
In its fifth year, the Family Business Awards of CNY event recognizes family-owned businesses established and operating in Central New York. It is presented annually by the Central New York Business Journal, itself a family business, and produced by BizEventz. This year’s ceremony was held at the Sheraton Syracuse University Hotel on Tuesday, December 10, and Mountainside Medical Equipment was one of ten awards winners in various categories.
“This is my chance to honor my family,” said Martin Zarnock, Sr., accepting the award. “Without them, I wouldn’t be receiving this award. One day seventeen years ago my children asked me why we couldn’t just start our own business, and it’s 2019 and we’re still in business.” Zarnock Sr. attended the ceremony accompanied by his son Martin Zarnock, Jr., Vice President of Mountainside Medical Equipment; daughter Christina Zarnock Nelson, Operations Manager; and son-in-law Rory Nelson, Purchasing Manager; as well as his wife Valerie Zarnock and grandson Ben Nelson.
The United States Small Business Administration has certified Mountainside Medical Equipment as a Service-Disabled Owned Small Business. The company was honored not only for its success as a business, but also for its active and ongoing support of veterans’ outreach programs and services.
