Oklahoma Lt. Gov. Todd Lamb presented three Oklahoma businesses with the Lieutenant Governor’s Small Business Award of Excellence during Small Business Day activities Wednesday at the state Capitol.

The three award winners were Ram Jack Systems, of Ada; APSCO, of Tulsa; and GEFCO Inc., of Enid.

Ram Jack Systems is a 40-year-old company that offers a method for supporting residential and commercial foundations, according to a news release provided by the lieutenant governor’s office . The company employs 85 Oklahomans and continues to grow.

For more than 82 years, GEFCO has designed and built portable drilling rigs. The company employs 172 people.

APSCO of Tulsa manufactures pneumatic cylinders, controls and valves for mobile, truck equipment and automotive markets. It began in a garage in 1964, but has evolved into a $10 million operation with a workforce of 65 employees.

“Oklahoma businesses of all sizes power our economy, but small businesses are the pistons that power the engine,” Lamb said.
