Beyond naming Exacto Spring Corp. as its mid-size business of the year, Ozaukee Economic Development recognized two other businesses in the categories of small-size and large-size business of the year.
n Small-size: Fiddleheads Coffee, located in Thiensville, Cedarburg, and Mequon, received the honor.
Started in 1996, it has grown from one coffee café to five retail locations. It developed a wholesale and retail coffee roasting business, as well as an artisan bakery specializing in pastries and bread.  
The growth has resulted in more than 20 new jobs.
“Fiddleheads continues to be a strong community supporter — they participate in all of the local Cedarburg, Mequon and Thiensville events,” Ozaukee Economic Development said in a release.
Fiddleheads’ motto is “We don’t know where our company stops and community begins,” Ozaukee Economic Development said.
n Large-size: Kleen Test, headquartered in Port Washington, is the winner.  
The company discreetly develops, manufactures and packages items including wet wipes, dryer sheets, liquids, pads, lotions, and soaps. It employs more than 250 employees between its Port Washington and Mequon locations.
“Kleen Test is a strong community partner,” Ozaukee Economic Development  said. “They financially support Fish Day, Pirate Fest, United Way and the food pantry, while also working with the City of Port Washington on sustainability efforts, water monitoring and economic development efforts.”
The awards will be presented at a breakfast at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 26, at the Ozaukee Pavilion, W67N866 Washington Ave., in Cedarburg.
