Alabama 2016 export awards go to 8 companies

MONTGOMERY, Alabama — Eight Alabama companies are being honored today with a Governor’s Trade Excellence Award for their successful exporting strategies.

Across the state, companies large and small are involved in shipping their products to overseas customers. This year’s roster of award winners offers a glimpse of the wide ranging Alabama-made lineup, from high-tech satellite communication systems used by military and humanitarian aid organizations to Southern lumber used in flooring, cabinets and furniture in homes around the globe.

“Exports are an accelerator for Alabama’s economy, creating new jobs and expanding trade opportunities for businesses across the state,” Governor Robert Bentley said. “The world-class businesses being recognized today are not only creating great ‘Made-in-Alabama’ products but also showing the global marketplace just how innovative and competitive Alabama companies are.”
