The U.S. Department of Commerce recently recognized three South Carolina businesses with Export Achievement Certificates during an event hosted by World Trade Center Charleston.

The three businesses, each of which has 10 or fewer employees, were honored for their worldwide success. Each reported more than $3.4 million in export sales. 

“These small businesses are really punching above their weight, finding sales that could compete with the sales some big multinational corporations would make,” said State Sen. Larry Grooms (R-Berkeley), who presented the awards. “That has a huge impact on a small business – supporting jobs and spreading word around the world that the ‘Made in South Carolina’ label represents a world-class product.”

Grooms also presented World Trade Center Charleston with a Certificate of Appreciation.

“South Carolina companies have a major advantage because of an unparalleled level of cooperation between federal and state government teams and other partners throughout the state,” said Dorette Coetsee, South Carolina Director at the U.S. Commercial Service. “We work together to provide funding, training, market research and other service to make exporting as simple as possible for companies here.”
