May 4, 2010
I.G. was presented with the 'Excellence in Exporting Certificate'
at the Eastern Ohio Development Alliance (EODA) 20th anniversary
meeting on April 30, 2010, in Walnut Creek. Ohio Congressman Zack
Space presented the award to Ramsey Bader, Edgetech's international
sales and marketing director, during the luncheon that was attended
by more than 300 people from legislators and media to county and
"Edgetech has achieved steady growth in both North America
and our various international markets, which now account for nearly
30 percent of our sales," Bader said. "We have focused
heavily on expanding our efforts globally and now sell our flagship
product Super Spacer® in more than 80 countries. It is a great
honor to once again be recognized by the EODA for our exporting
achievements and look forward to continued worldwide success, which
ultimately translates to success for our region."
This is Edgetech's fourth EODA award. The company earned the Governor's
'Exporter of the Year' Award in 2006, the Governor's 'Business Excellence'
Award in 2005 and the Governor's 'Excellence in Exporting' Award
"Continuous improvement initiatives have always been the backbone
of Edgetech's success," said Mike Hovan, president of Edgetech
I.G. "We have taken this innovative spirit and added resources
in-house and overseas, facilitating growth of our company and contributing
to the success of our region. We thank EODA for all of their efforts
and for this great honor, especially U.S. Department of Commerce
Director in Columbus, Ohio, Roberta Ford, who nominated us for this
award and who has always been a great supporter."
