U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross has announced that Morse Manufacturing has received the President’s “E” Award for exporting. Ross said, “Morse Manufacturing has demonstrated a sustained commitment to export expansion. The “E” Awards Committee was very impressed with Morse Manufacturing’s significant gains in exports over the previous four years. The company’s use of Federal, State, and local resources to support international expansion was also particularly notable. Morse Manufacturing’s achievements have undoubtedly contributed to national export expansion efforts that support the U.S. economy and create American jobs.
Morse president Nate Andrews said, “We are very pleased to receive this national honor, and to be the only company in New York State to be awarded.” From Morse’s new 120,000 sq.ft. facility in Central New York, the company designs and builds equipment to handle industrial drums (barrels), plus smaller drums and pails.
Winning criteria of Morse’s export performance included; development of superior foreign distributors around the globe, working with U.S. Department of Commerce and New York Empire State Development, participation in trade shows of international import, travel by Morse executives to Central America and Europe, employee training through Syracuse University Export New York, and demonstrating the value of Morse products that outperform and outlast inferior products. Very notable is the export business’s support of Morse’s stable employment base in Central New York.
Ross stated, “This well-deserved award is the highest honor given to U.S. exporters.”
