SUWANEE, Ga. — U.S. Representative Rob Woodall recently presented Winton Machine Company, manufacturer of over 100 different tube and coax fabrication machines, with a U.S. Commercial Service Export Achievement Award during a ceremony at the company’s headquarters in Suwanee.
The Export Achievement Award was created by the U.S. Commercial Service to recognize small and medium-sized enterprises that have successfully entered the international marketplace for the first time or that have successfully entered a new foreign market with assistance.
“When we talk about entrepreneurs and small businesses being the backbone of our economy, you won’t find a better example than Winton Machine,” Rep. Rob Woodall said. “Having seen the expertise of their operation first-hand, I could not be more proud of what Lisa, George and their whole team here in the Seventh District has accomplished, and I’m thrilled to see them receive the broader recognition they deserve. Their hard work and commitment turned a vision into an industry-leading manufacturer that not only serves countless clients across the world, but remains an invaluable contributor to our community.”
Winton Machine was founded in 1997 by company owners, George and Lisa Winton, in the basement of their home in Lawrenceville. The company started by designing and building dedicated hand benders and in less than a year, found their basement full of machinery equipment and supplies.
The firm designs and manufacturers all of its machinery onsite at its 13,000 square foot facility in Suwanee and has also developed proprietary software that is used exclusively on Winton Machine products.
