AUGUSTINE, Fla., Aug. 17, 2018—Solar Stik®, Inc. hosted Florida Governor Rick Scott for the announcement of the state’s lowest unemployment rate in more than 10 years. Governor Scott attributed the creation of 26,300 private-sector jobs in July to the 3.7 percent unemployment rate. During the past three months, Solar Stik has added four new hires to its now 35-member Team.

Governor Scott also presented Brian Bosley, Solar Stik CEO and co-founder, with the Governor’s Ambassador of Business Award at the morning press conference. The medal is given to individuals for their efforts in creating jobs and opportunities for Florida families.

“This award is a reflection of our commitment to revive American manufacturing starting here, in St. Augustine,” Bosley said. “The most amazing parts of this entrepreneurial journey called Solar Stik are the relationships that we have built along the way. Our Team members are amazing! They are what make this life worth living!”

Solar Stik is the premier manufacturer of portable hybrid power systems for military applications in the 1 to 15 kW power spectrum. It pioneered the design and manufacturing of scalable, modular system architectures used to alleviate the logistical burdens of providing power in remote, off-grid locations.

Following Governor Scott’s announcement, he visited with members of Solar Stik’s Production Team at their work stations and toured the facility. He also was shown samples of several products Solar Stik supplied to state and international emergency relief organizations in Texas, the Florida Keys, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands after Hurricanes Harvey, Maria, and Irma.
