In a ceremony held on May 16 at the U.S. Department of Commerce’s headquarters in Washington D.C. Department of Commerce Secretary Penny Ptritzker awarded DSC Dredge LLC the 2016 President’s E-Star Award for exports. DSC is only the third company in the program’s history to receive a second E-Star Award.
Pritzker said “These companies demonstrate the opportunity inherent in selling made-in-America products to the broad customer base that exists outside our borders. Their success contributes to growth job creation competitiveness and the success of the American economy.” She said the President’s E-Star award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.
“When we first received the “E” Award back in 2008 50 percent of our revenues that year consisted of exports” DSC President and CEO Bob Wetta said. “Exporting is a major component of DSC’s overall growth and in 2012 we were proud to receive an “E-Star” Award. Today in 2016 we are once again deeply honored to receive this prestigious award.”
