Edgetech I.G. Receives Certificate for Exporting Excellence
May 4, 2010

Edgetech 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 local leaders.

"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 in 2002.

"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."
