Vacuworx Honored with Governor's Award for Excellence in Exporting

TULSA, Okla., April 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Vacuworx, a global leader in the manufacture and distribution of vacuum-lifting technology and material-handling equipment, has received the 2014 Governor's Award for Excellence in Exporting. Vacuworx President Bill Solomon accepted the award, presented April 10 by Oklahoma's Secretary of State Chris Benge on behalf of Governor Mary Fallin during the 31st Annual Oklahoma World Trade Conference at the Double Tree by Hilton Hotel Tulsa at Warren Place.

Vacuworx President Bill Solomon and a stockpile of RC 10 Series lifters housed near the company's home office in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The export award was created to recognize the achievements of small- to medium-sized companies that have successfully entered the worldwide marketplace. Tulsa-based Vacuworx was nominated based on its commitment to investing in logistical, environmental and cultural resources and meeting fast-growing worldwide demand for reliable and economical material-handling solutions. 

"We take a personalized approach to building lasting relationships in communities served in North America and across the globe," Solomon said. "From partnering with pipeline and energy companies in Oklahoma to expanding our efforts to move parts and equipment even closer to customers and dealers in Europe, Australia, Latin America, South Africa and other parts of the world, the No. 1 priority at Vacuworx has always been to earn the highest-quality reputation in pipeline, utility, construction and energy related industries."

Vacuworx Lifting Systems can handle nearly any diameter of steel, plastic, cast-iron or concrete pipe, as well as steel plate, pre-cast slabs and concrete road barriers. The company manufactures, sells, rents and services the lifters, which can be attached to excavators, backhoes, cranes, pipelayers or forklifts. Lift capacities range from 6,600 to 44,000 lbs. Vacuworx was founded in 1999 and the following year made its first international export to Australia. Export sales skyrocketed in 2013 as the company improved on its logistical capabilities and expanded into new markets.

"Vacuworx is honored to be included among Mathey Dearman Inc., TD Williamson and The Charles Machine Works Inc. and other past Governor's Award recipients," Solomon said. "Starting at the local level, these world-class organizations work tirelessly to elevate the state of Oklahoma's status in a global economy."
