DemeTech Corporation is Named Ex-Im Bank's Small Business Exporter of the Year
DemeTech Corporation, an American manufacturer of surgical sutures and blades headquartered in Miami, FL, USA., received the 2010 Small Business Exporter of the Year award from the Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) at the Bank's 2010 Annual Conference in Washington, D.C., on March 11, 2010. President Barack Obama awarded DemeTech's President, Mr. Luis Arguello, with the award during a beautiful ceremony in Washington DC.
Using an Ex-Im Bank multibuyer export credit insurance policy, DemeTech has expanded into a large number of global markets that want cutting-edge U.S. technology but could not buy it without the Ex-Im Bank support.
"DemeTech tapped the resources of both the private sector and three U.S. government agencies to expand its export of top-quality medical equipment to some 80 countries from Latin America to the Middle East to Asia," said Ex-Im Bank Chairman and President Fred P. Hochberg. "We hope this proactive company's example will inspire many more U.S. small businesses to use government resources to expand globally while supporting U.S. jobs at home."
