Equilibar receives President’s "E" Award for exports

Equilibar, a manufacturer of specialty fluid control instruments for research and industry, received the 2019 President’s "E" Award for Exports during a May 23 ceremony in Washington, D.C. The President’s "E" Award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to an increase in U.S. exports. U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross presented the award to Jeff Jennings, Equilibar president, and Julie Detmering, exports and customer service manager. Equilibar was recognized for its commitment to export expansion, including international certifications and global networking.

American companies are nominated for "E" Awards through the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service office network, located within the Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration.
