Panel Discussion on Prestigious President’s “E” Awards
During a year that has been especially tough for businesses, two Michigan companies have risen to the top. Redi-Rock International and Foster Swift Collins & Smith are being recognized by the President and the U.S. Department of Commerce for their innovative ideas and expertise in the world of global exports.
Redi-Rock recently received the President’s “E” Award for Exporting, while Foster Swift was honored with the President’s “E” Award for Export Service, the highest honors U.S. entities can receive for making significant contributions to the expansion of U.S. exports.
In five years, Redi-Rock quintupled the number of jobs provided in Michigan and overseas, the company expanded from four international customers to 23 international manufacturers. Speaking during a recent panel interview with Foster Swift, the company is sharing information and resources so that other Michigan businesses gain access to similar opportunities.
