Archangel Receives 2014 Governor’s Trade Excellence Award

Archangel Systems was recently presented a Governor’s Trade Excellence Award by Alabama Governor Robert Bentley. The award was presented to eight Alabama companies that are excelling in international trade.

Governor's Award“Alabama products are among the best in the country, and the companies recognized today show how successful Alabama products are reaching the global marketplace," Governor Bentley said. “In 2013 Alabama exports totaled $19.3 billion which represents a 57% increase since 2009.  The Export Alabama Alliance is connecting Alabama companies with exciting new opportunities, and that’s good business for this state.”

“The companies honored here today make up an important component of the state’s engine for growth, retention and job creation,” Alabama Secretary of Commerce Greg Canfield said.  “A sustained increase in exports plays a key role in Accelerate Alabama, the state’s strategic plan for economic development.”

The Governor’s Trade Excellence Awards Program was established in 2005 to recognize Alabama manufacturers and service companies for excelling in international trade.  The objectives of this program include identifying Alabama’s successful exporters, promoting exports as role models to the Alabama business community and increasing awareness of the impact of exporting on Alabama’s economy.
