Teamvantage Wins 2014 "Architect of Defense" Award 

Minneapolis - 24 September 2014:  The Defense Alliance held its annual award event Wednesday evening at HGA.  More than 70 people from defense-oriented organizations attended the event which was hosted by HGA, one of the nation’s leading architectural and engineering firms. 

The event, titled “Architect of Defense,” was principally a networking opportunity for the diverse group representing a spectrum of industries that contribute to defense and homeland security.  Following a reception and program, the seventh annual “Architect of Defense” award was presented to Randy Kvalheim of Teamvantage.  The award is presented to the Defense Alliance member who best exemplifies and promotes the ideals and mission of the Alliance.  The company is a market leader in manufacturing precision-machined parts for a variety of industries.  During the past two years, Teamvantage has executed a strategic approach to the defense market that led to significant sales and potential growth with new defense industry customers; and the company moved to a brand new, custom-designed manufacturing facility in Forest Lake, Minnesota.  Randy Kvalheim was central to the company's aggressive approach to new business development and value for the Warfighter.

The evening was sponsored in part by Founding Fathers Brewery, which donates half of all profits to Veteran, servicemember and military family initiatives.
