JMC wins Presidential Export Award from Department of Commerce

by JMC on May 25, 2017

Today, U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross honored 32 U.S. companies and organizations that export goods and services during the 2017 President’s “E” Awards ceremony.

JMC Inc., a Durham N.C. based company, won the President’s E-Award for Excellence in Export 2017, and it is the only company in North Carolina awarded this year.

Companies representing 23 states and Guam were recognized as part of the 55th anniversary of the award. This year’s honorees include 26 small and medium-sized businesses and 11 manufacturers.

“Job creation is a top priority for the Trump administration,” Secretary 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.”

The President’s “E” Award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. In 1961, President Kennedy signed an executive order reviving the World War II “E” symbol of excellence to honor and provide recognition to America’s exporters. Today’s honorees helped contribute to the United States’ exporting $2.2 trillion worth of goods and services in 2016, and the estimated 11.5 million American jobs supported by exports.

This year, 16 companies and organizations were honored with the “E” Award for Exports for demonstrating a sustained increase in export sales over a four-year period. There were 11 companies and organizations that assisted and facilitated export activities and received the “E” Award for Export Service. The “E” Star Award for Exports, which recognizes previous “E” Awardees who have reported four years of additional export growth, was awarded to three firms. And, two companies were awarded the “E” Star Award for Export Service, which recognizes previous “E” Awardees that have shown four years of continued support of exporters since first winning the “E” Award.

Secretary of Commerce - E-AwardAmerican companies are nominated for “E” Awards through the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service office network, located within the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration. Record years of successive export growth and an applicant’s demonstration of an innovative international marketing plan that led to the increase in exports is a significant factor in selecting the overall winners.
