Both the “E” Award for Exports and Export Service is given for demonstrating a sustained increase in export sales over a four-year period.

Each company was presented the award from Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross for their significant contributions to increasing America’s overall exports into more than 200 global markets.

“Job creation is a top priority for the Trump administration,” Ross said. “As we kick off World Trade Week, it is a pleasure to honor these companies who increase our domestic exports and create good-paying jobs for the American people. Congratulations on this exceptional achievement.”
