COOPER-ATKINS CORP. RECEIVES PRESIDENTIAL AWARD FOR EXPORTS

Cooper-Atkins Corporation was presented with the President’s “E” Award for Exports by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker at a ceremony today in Washington, D.C.  CEO Carol P. Wallace received the award on behalf of the company. The “E” Award represents the highest recognition any U.S. entity may receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.

 

U.S. companies are nominated for the “E” Award for Exports through the Department of Commerce’s U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service office network, located within the Department’s International Trade Administration.

 

“Exporting continues to be the foundation of our sales growth, and we are honored to receive the “E” Award,” said Wallace. “Our export sales grew 36% in the past four years enabling us to sustain jobs and even expand our work force.”

 

In her congratulatory letter to the company, Secretary Pritzker wrote “Cooper-Atkins Corporation has demonstrated a sustained commitment to export expansion.  The “E” Awards Committee was very impressed with Cooper-Atkins’ innovation in entering the international healthcare market.  The company’s development of market entry strategies was also particularly impressive.  Cooper-Atkins’ achievements have undoubtedly contributed to national export expansion efforts that support the U.S. economy and create American jobs.”
