Serve Daily - - FOSTERING INNOVATION -

Michael Lund­wall has been se­lected as the 2015 SBA Utah Small Busi­ness Ex­porter of the Year. Lund­wall owns In­vent-A-Part, Inc. (in­ven­ta­part.com), a Springville-based com­pany that spe­cial­izes in rapid pro­to­typ­ing ser­vices (also known as 3D print­ing).

In­vent-A-Part also pro­duces and man­u­fac­tures the RigidBot, a 3D printer that cre­ates plas­tic ob­jects based on dig­i­tal schemat­ics and CAD de­signs. Since 2014, the RigidBot has been ex­ported to 53 coun­tries.

Lund­wall founded In­vent-A-Part in 2009 af­ter re­ceiv­ing his bach­e­lor of science de­gree in man­u­fac­tur­ing and en­gi­neer­ing tech­nol­ogy from Brigham Young Uni­ver­sity. Cen­tral Bank nom­i­nated Lund­wall for the 2015 SBA Small Busi­ness Ex­porter of the Year Award and it­self was re­cently named the most ac­tive SBA Ex­port Ex­press Com­mu­nity Bank Lender in the na­tion in 2014.

“Utah en­trepreneurs have his­tor­i­cally proven they can suc­ceed in any eco­nomic en­vi­ron­ment. Our 2015 awardees ex­em­plify hard work, de­ter­mi­na­tion and vi­sion, which are the back­bone of what it means to be a small busi­ness,” said Stan Nakano, dis­trict direc­tor for the SBA Utah Dis­trict Of­fice in Salt Lake City. Lund­wall was hon­ored at an awards lun­cheon on May 4 at the Joseph Smith Me­mo­rial Build­ing in Salt Lake City.
