When James Julia’s auction house was presented with a 2012 Governor’s Award for Business Excellence, he gave credit to the employees who help him find and sell treasures.

James D. Julia Inc. in Fairfield was among six companies to receive the award, presented by Gov. Paul LePage on Monday in Augusta.

Among the other companies to receive the award was Saddleback Ski Resort in Rangeley, where owners Bill and Irene Berry have created more than 150 new seasonal jobs since buying the business in 2003, according to JoAnne Taylor, a resort spokeswoman.

The other recipients are:

Volk Packaging Corp., a family business that operates a high-quality corrugated and foam-products plant in Biddeford.

Allen Insurance and Financial of Camden, a marine insurance agency based in Knox County.

Moose River Lumber Co., which has saw and planer mills in the town of Moose River.

Tambrands, Inc., a Proctor & Gamble company that runs an Auburn plant that manufactures Tampax products.

For the past 22 years, the business excellence awards have been distributed annually to a handful of Maine companies. Thirty-four companies were nominated this year.
