Colorado Companies to Watch, the state-wide organization whose mission is recognizing entrepreneurial, Colorado-based businesses with 6 to 99 employees, celebrated its decennial class of fifty honorees with a gala at the Denver Marriott Tech Center June 22, 2018. Among the 2018 winning companies was Littleton’s Crazy Scrubs, Inc., located at 151 West Mineral Avenue in the Safeway shopping center. Opening their doors in 1994, owners Scott and Sandi Richter re-imagined previously staid blue, green and brown hospital scrubs as cheerfully colorful garments made from wildly patterned fabrics. First selling to Littleton doctors and nurses, Crazy Scrubs caught on quickly as medical personnel saw the positive effect happy patterns had on anxious patients. Now boasting a network of thousands of wholesale accounts worldwide, the company gives back by supporting more than 100 medical missions around the globe. A visit to the Crazy Scrubs corporate office shows photos of clinicians wearing the scrubs in Tanzania, Kenya, Haiti, the Philippines, Mexico, China, Cambodia and India. American surgeons working globally say Crazy Scrubs help bridge the language barrier. Two years ago the company began Ripcord Brands, a new division which is Amazon’s leading seller of medical apparel and one of the online behemoth’s highest-rated and fastest growing companies. Congratulations to Crazy Scrubs!
