Pulaski, WI (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
MCL Industries, Inc. of Pulaski, Wisconsin, was one of only thirteen small businesses hailed by the U.S. Small Business Administration for their outstanding support of entrepreneurs. The Champion Awards were presented May 25 in Washington, D.C., as part of the annual observance of National Small Business Week.
MCL Industries, Inc., a manufacturer of electrical control systems and mechanical assemblies for world-class, heavy-duty vehicle manufacturers, won the 2010 Jeffrey Butland Family Owned Small Business Award. The Jeffrey Butland Family Owned Small Business award recognizes MCL for their hard work, innovative ideas, and dedication to the community, as well as for their role in driving the nation’s economic growth.
“MCL was built on family and continues to grow with our extended family of management and employees,” explained Carl Treankler, Director of New Product Introduction. “It’s about relationships, trust and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. When a new customer outsources their electrical engineering job to us, they trust us to deliver a quality and innovative solution on time and on budget. That’s how we grow our family here.“
White House Bound
Carl Treankler, Larry Treankler, Terry Hanstedt and Gary Lofquist received this National Small Business Champion award during the National Small Business Week celebration in Washington, DC. The 3-day event, which included a trip to the White House, culminated in an awards ceremony on May 25.
“The SBA is proud to honor these men and women as true champions of small business, whose tireless efforts have provided tangible and significant support to small businesses and to their communities,” said SBA Administrator Karen G. Mills. “They provide the counseling, advice and support that small business owners need, and foster an environment where the spirit of entrepreneurship can flourish resulting in growth and job creation.”
This year’s Champion Awards recognize winners from Arizona, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Mexico, North Dakota, Pennsylvania, Texas, Washington and Wisconsin.

Today, MCL employs more than 150 people and supplies national and global customers in the military, marine, emergency, construction, agriculture and mining industries.
