Invent-A-Part named Utah Small Business Exporter of the Year
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.
