Milwaukee, November 10, 2017 - Alpha Source, Inc., a leader in imaging service and medical device parts distribution for health care providers, announced today it was the recipient of the Outstanding Corporate Growth Award, presented by the Wisconsin Chapter of the Association for Corporate Growth.

Every year, ACG honors a Wisconsin company that demonstrates sustained financial performance, strong business culture and strategic excellence, with revenues between $10–250 million.
