Allied Wire and Cable has received the Presidential “E” Star Award for Exports, representing the premier recognition any U.S. company or organization can receive for significantly contributing to the expansion of U.S. exports. Tim Flynn, Allied Wire, and Cable co-owner and co-president, was presented the award by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross at a ceremony on May 21 in Washington, D.C.
The Presidential “E” Star Award for Exports signifies to our overseas customers that Allied Wire and Cable has a proven track record of shipping wire and cable products—and a lot of them—globally. Only 43 U.S. companies and organizations were given the President’s “E” Award this year for their role in strengthening the U.S. economy by sharing American ingenuity outside our borders. Of those, just eight received the prestigious Presidential “E” Star Award for Exports.
“Our company is marking our 30th anniversary, and it’s remarkable to look back and consider that Allied Wire and Cable has grown from a basement operation to not only a sizeable organization with sales and warehouse locations across the country but making a major impact in international trade,” Flynn said.
Allied Wire and Cable has enjoyed past recognition for its trade impact. The company received the Presidential “E” Award for Exports and a Pennsylvania Faces of Trade award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, both in 2014.
