300 Below, Inc. received the 4RevAward in Innovation from judges across the manufacturing technology ecosystem, recognizing 300 Below's cryogenic treatment for advancing multiple manufacturing technologies and significantly improving the nation's manufacturing ecosystem.

"300 Below is proud to be revolutionary, elevating innovation in the defense manufacturing industrial base," said Prescott Paulin, President at 300 Below, Inc. "As America regrows manufacturing capabilities, our clients seek ways to avoid shrinking margins and overseas job exports. Our process transforms metal parts, extending a competitive advantage to manufacturers to make parts last longer and perform better than ever before. Benefits include lower operating costs, lower tooling expenses, plus reduced downtime on manufacturing lines. We treat tools used to make items as well as finished products before they ship."

AFWERX, through the US Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), awarded ~$1,500,000 in small business innovation research (SBIR) funding to 300 Below to improve at-risk military metals. 300 Below triples the life of at-risk military metals for ~20% of an item's cost, doubling barrel life and increasing accuracy for military firearms up to 50%, plus reducing downtime for vehicles and aircraft by tripling the life of brake parts, extending a competitive advantage to our military beyond any other nation in the world.

Prior 4RevAward recipients include General Electric, Microsoft, Marmon, Wiegel, and Light Guide. ArcelorMittal, Bank of America, CBRE, Comcast, Accenture, BCG, KPMG, and McKinsey are primary sponsors of the 4RevAwards.

  • Published articles about YOUR SBIR-involved firm
  • Press releases for pick-up by other sources
  • Professional papers; White papers; relevant Business materials

It is a rare issue of the major Business Press - WSJ; New York Times; Washington Post - and regional equivalents; magazines of similar importance - The Economist, Fortune, Forbes etc - and now a wealth of electronic communications and daily news feeds that does not include reference to, or articles about, one/more SBIR-STTR Awardees. With the focus usually on what the firm is about - their technical achievement or business emphasis - it is an unusual coverage that even mentions their SBIR involvement. An integral part of the extensive range of data we continuously assembled in our system on all SBIR-STTR involved firms includes this type of press coverage.  Much that we gather includes firms no longer SBIR involved or still in business, nor now eligible. ...more
