ABILENE, Texas -

Automated Copy Systems and Tige Boats were the winners of the Torch Awards from the Better Business Bureau Wednesday at McMurry University.

The idea for the Torch Award is to honor companies that build trust in the marketplace.  They take nominations from customers and other business owners.

The keynote speaker for the event was Larry Conlee, former Chief Operating Officer for Research in Motion, the parent company of Blackberry.  He's a 1971 graduate of McMurry University.
