Schwarze Industries, manufacturer of some of the finest, most durable, quality power sweeping equipment in the world, is selected as a 2015 recipient of the 9th annual Governor’s Trade Excellence Award. The company will receive its honor from Governor Robert Bentley on March 18 in a ceremony at the State Capitol in Montgomery, Alabama.
“We are very pleased to be recognized for our international efforts with the Governor’s Trade Excellence Award,” says Greg Heyer, Schwarze Vice President of Sales, Marketing, Customer Service & Product Management. “International sales continue to be an important part of Schwarze’s business.”
Presented by the Alabama Department of Commerce and the Export Alabama Trade Alliance, the Governor’s Trade Excellence Award recognizes companies in Alabama that excel in overseas sales and service. The objectives of the program are to identify the state’s successful and innovative exporters, promote them as role models to encourage increased involvement in the global marketplace, and develop awareness of how exporting impacts Alabama’s economy.
“Alabama products are among the best in the country, and the companies recognized show how successful Alabama products are reaching the global marketplace,” Governor Bentley says. “The Export Alabama Alliance is connecting Alabama companies with exciting new opportunities, and that’s good business for this state.”
