Washington, D.C. - In recognition of their tremendous efforts and years of success, U.S. Senator Jim Risch has named Seekins Precision as the Idaho Small Business of the Month for September. The company will be recognized in the Congressional Record of the United States Senate.
“I am pleased to recognize Seekins Precision as an outstanding Idaho small business,” said Sen. Risch. “Locally owned and operated, Seekins Precision builds innovative products for precision shooters. Seekins Precision is a true illustration of the American Dream, having grown and adapted for the past 10 years. It all started out of Glen and Katie Seekins’ garage and since then the business has expanded from manufacturing original scope rings with just a handful of employees, to developing over ten major upper-end rifle lines and creating over 25 new jobs. I congratulate everyone at Seekins Precision on their success and wish them the very best in their future growth, both domestically and internationally.”
Founded in 2004 as a start-up company, Seekins Precision provides some of the finest quality rifle products available in the nation. In January, the small business participated in the Shooting Hunting Outdoor Trade (SHOT) Show and Conference in Las Vegas, the largest annual trade show for recreation technology professionals and the world’s premier exposition of combined firearms. Participation in the SHOT Show exposed Seekins Precision to buyers from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. Their commitment to high-quality products and customer service has enabled them to adapt to constant changes in a unique marketplace. Seekins Precision is a great example of the small business spirit that drives Idaho’s economy.

The committee oversees proposed legislation on matters relating to entrepreneurship and provides oversight of the Small Business Administration. They also research, investigate and report all problems relating to American’s small businesses to the full Senate.###
