Rochester Business Journal
March 24, 2014

Michael Allen, president of Z-Axis Inc. in Phelps, Ontario County, has been named New York’s Small Business Person of the Year, an honor that puts him in the running for the national title, as well.

Allen was among winners selected from each of the 50 states, as well as the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Guam.

“Z-Axis Inc. has not only won the Buffalo district and state award but now competes for national recognition,” said SBA Buffalo District Director Franklin Sciortino, in a statement.  “It is my pleasure to recognize Michael Allen for his leadership, for advancing the nation’s entrepreneurial spirit and his contributions to our economy.”

Allen, along with eight other SBA Buffalo District Small Business Week winners, will receive their awards during a small business recognition ceremony on May 5. 

Z-Axis designs and manufactures specialty power supplies and offers contract manufacturing services. The firm has 73 workers and plans to add 10 more over the next three years.
