Jul 13, 2022 - U.S. Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo hosted the 61st President’s “E” and “E Star” Awards ceremony at the Herbert C. Hoover Building, where she presented Technologent and 18 other U.S. organizations with the President’s “E” or “E Star” Award. The “E” and “E Star” awards are the highest recognition a U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. Of the 19 recipients, 14 are small and-medium-sized businesses and 5 are manufacturers. This year’s recipients come from 15 different states.
In her official remarks during the ceremony, Secretary Raimondo stated, “Today’s E Awards winners contributed to nearly a billion and a half dollars of exports in goods and services from 2018 through 2021. Exporting world-class American products overseas isn’t just essential for our domestic economy, it’s also vital for our global economic competitiveness.
"Strengthening our domestic supply chains and increasing our engagement with international markets are critical to our economic recovery. That’s why we’re doing everything we can at the Commerce Department to promote American businesses and products globally. I’m thrilled to recognize the achievements of this year’s recipients for showcasing the innovation and dynamism that is characteristic of America’s private sector,” said Raimondo.
“E Star” Award for Exports
Three companies received the “E” Star Award for Exports, which recognizes previous “E” Awardees that have reported four years of additional export growth.
- Beekley Medical, Bristol, Connecticut
- Grand-Rock Company Inc, Painesville, Ohio
- Technologent, Irvine, California
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.
About the “E” Awards
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. Criteria for the award is based on four years of successive export growth and case studies which demonstrate valuable support to exporters resulting in increased exports for the company’s clients.
