FRANKFORT -- Kentucky's small businesses were celebrated recently in the Capitol Rotunda in Frankfort during Kentucky Celebrates Small Business. The Kentucky Small Business Development Center and the Kentucky District Office of the U.S. Small Business Administration presented the awards ceremony.
Among the 10 recipients of the Kentucky Pacesetter awards were Two Rivers Fisheries Inc. in Wickliffe and Universal Compressor Solutions LLC in Mayfield. The winners were chosen based on how they are changing Kentucky's economic landscape by introducing innovative products, increasing sales and/or production, boosting employment and serving their communities.
"Small business is the backbone of the American economy," Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton said. "As you've seen over the last several months, Kentucky is experiencing an unparalleled renaissance of economic growth, and it's only going to continue as we nurture a climate for small business to thrive."
