Beaverton Mayor Denny Doyle presented Beaverton 4 Business awards to three local businesses at Tuesday night's City Council meeting in City Hall.

Launched in 2009, Beaverton 4 Business is a program conducted in partnership with the Beaverton Area Chamber of Commerce that publicly recognizes significant achievements of businesses headquartered or with operations in Beaverton.

This year's Beaverton-based recipients include the C.E. John Company, Inc., International Paper and the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center & Foundation.

Here are profiles of the award winners:

• Headquartered in Vancouver, Wash., the C.E. John Company is a family-owned commercial and multi-family real estate development company that's been a part of Beaverton for three generations. C.E. John has owned and leased more than 70 acres of property in Beaverton, including Cedar Hills Crossing, where the company has announced plans for the first phase of a $12 million building investment in Cedar Hills Crossing II, including Seattle-based MOD Pizza.

• International Paper has manufacturing operations in North America, Europe, Latin America, Asia and North Africa. Since 2008, the company has operated four facilities in Beaverton that employ 80 people. International Paper has an ink and plating manufacturing facility, box recycling, and paper bag manufacturing plant. The company works to fulfill its sustainability goals by producing paper bags that are renewable, compostable, recyclable and reusable.

• The first nonprofit recipient of the Beaverton 4 Business Award, the Virginia Garcia Memorial Health Center & Foundation provides comprehensive and culturally appropriate primary health care to the communities of Washington and Yamhill counties, serving more than 35,000 patients a year. An economic driver for the city, county and state, Virginia Garcia strives to make health care accessible to all.

Doyle praised the companies for their contributions to the area's economic vitality and quality of life.

“Dynamic businesses create stronger regional economy, more jobs, support for our schools and a better quality of life in Beaverton,” he said. “The city is proud to recognize the achievements of these businesses that continue to make Beaverton The Best of Oregon.”
