Cooperstown, ND – Tamara Somerville, vice-president of Posi Lock Puller Inc., Cooperstown ND, recently was presented with the US Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 2013 North Dakota Small Business Exporter of the Year award.
“It is truly an honour to be recognized as SBA’s 2013 North Dakota Small Business Exporter of the Year,” said Somerville. “We have aggressive international growth plans here at Posi Lock, and accepting this award is a fantastic milestone.”
Posi Lock Puller was founded 35 years ago by Dean Somerville when he developed an innovative manual gear and bearing puller featuring a patented steel Safety Cage. Posi Lock Puller’s product line has since expanded to include hydraulic pullers, specialty tools and recently, the addition of the first 200-Ton hydraulic puller in the US.
The annual Exporter of the Year award recognizes an exceptional small business that is successfully engaged in exporting. Posi Lock Puller was selected following a state-wide competition. The company was recognized by multiple parties, including the North Dakota Trade Office, for its export accomplishments.
