US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker recently presented IMS Dredges with the President's 'E' Award for Exports at a ceremony in Washington, DC.
The E Awards are the highest recognition any US entity may receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of US exports. During the awards ceremony Secretary Pritzker gave special recognition to IMS for their exporting success.
"Exporting is what drives our growth, and we are honored to receive the E Award," said Ryan Horton, IMS Global Sales Director.
"IMS exported its first dredge to Thailand in 1988. By 1992 over 25 per cent of our business was from exporting and in the past four years well over half of our sales are from exporting."
"IMS Dredges has demonstrated a sustained commitment to export expansion. The E Awards Committee was very impressed with IMS Dredge's innovative design of products specifically for export. The company's dedication to solving logistics challenges was also particularly impressive. IMS Dredges's achievements have undoubtedly contributed to national export expansion efforts that support the US economy and create American jobs," said Secretary Pritzker in her congratulatory letter to the company announcing its selection as an award recipient.
