announces STEP grant funding
CHARLESTON, W.Va. (August 24, 2016) – Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin, along with West Virginia Department of Commerce Secretary Keith Burdette, on Wednesday, August 24, 2016, awarded the International Industry Entry Award to 37 companies from across the Mountain State. These awards honor West Virginia organizations that successfully exported to a new country. In 2015, West Virginia companies exported much more than .8 billion in items to much more than 140 nations.
During the award presentation, Gov. Tomblin also announced that West Virginia has been once once more chosen by the U.S. Small Enterprise Administration to get funding via the State Trade and Export Promotion (STEP) grant initiative. These funds will help the West Virginia Improvement Office’s export assistance system to support little firms offset the charges of international enterprise.
"Today we celebrate West Virginia companies that have established our state can compete effectively in the worldwide market place. Exports are a important tool for economic development," Gov. Tomblin mentioned. "These companies are an asset to our state as we continue to develop our company landscape and diversify West Virginia’s economy. I always appear forward to this opportunity to recognize their successes."
The Governor’s Commendation for International Marketplace Entry Awards honor companies that have effectively exported to a new country in the preceding year. Each firm receives a framed piece of currency from each new country to which the enterprise began exporting. The presentation is primarily based on the tradition of displaying the initial dollar a organization earns.
Companies receiving the Governor’s Commendation for the first time this year are Probe America in Beckley, Mountain State Hardwoods in Bancroft, and Mountaineer Brand in Shepherdstown. In a special presentation, Wheeling Truck Center received its 100th export award. Considering that making their very first export sale in 2010, the company has exported to more than one hundred countries.
