Firstronic was awarded the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) 2016 Exporter of the Year award for the Midwest Region, on May 5 at the Twelfth Annual Michigan Celebrates Small Business awards dinner. The awards program was part of SBA’s National Small Business Week (May 1-7), which helps to celebrate the contributions businesses like Firstronic make in helping drive America’s economy.
Firstronic won the Exporter of the Year award at both the State and Midwest level, which covers Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin.
“We are very pleased to receive this award at both the state and regional level. Once again, Firstronic’s ‘Keep America Competitive’ business model is being honored. I’d like to thank our team for their hard work and our customers for having faith in our ability provide scalable manufacturing solutions globally. Finally, I also appreciate the business-friendly environment created by the State of Michigan. The fact that Governor Rick Snyder made time to attend the awards banquet, underscores just how committed to the business community both he and our state is,” said John Sammut, Firstronic’s president and CEO.
