“It’s a tremendous honor to be chosen by the SBA for this distinguished award,” said Foley. “Over the past two decades, Dynavac has proudly supported a number of mission-critical projects across an array of industries. It goes without saying that these accomplishments would not have been possible without our outstanding team of employees who invest their talent, expertise and creativity here every day. This award is a direct reflection of their dedication.”

“It is an honor to recognize the important work Dynavac has contributed to United States space exploration and defense programs,” said SBA Massachusetts District Director, Robert Nelson. “Large- scale production and innovation at the federal-level isn’t possible without partners such as Dynavac. Congratulations to the entire team at Dynavac!”

The SBA award comes on the heels of Dynavac marking 20 years of achievement as a privately held organization led by Tom Foley. The company was launched in 1999 with a five-person team with a vision to expand its product offerings into several niche markets. Since then, Dynavac has enjoyed steady growth momentum, earning a global reputation for producing high-vacuum systems with complex manufacturing and testing processes. Notably, Dynavac has supported several high-profile space exploration and defense programs, including the International Space Station, James Webb Space Telescope, Global Positioning System, and Orion.
