DemeTECH Corporation Wins the 2010 Presidential "E" and "E Star" Award!
DemeTech Corporation, an American manufacturer of surgical sutures and blades headquartered in Miami, FL, USA., received Presidential "E" and "E Star" Award from U.S. Commerce Secretary Gary Locke on May 13, 2010. Mr. Locke awarded DemeTech's President, Mr. Luis Arguello, with the award during a beautiful ceremony in Washington DC.
"President Obama's National Export Initiative goal of doubling U.S. exports and supporting 2 million jobs over the next five years has raised the profile of the importance of exports to our nation's continued economic recovery. DemeTECH is being honored today for its achievement in enhancing export growth which helps strengthen our economy and create American jobs.
"I want to congratulate you on your achievement, and for supporting critical export-related jobs for American workers. President Obama's initiative was designed with one overriding goal: to get people back to work in jobs that that provide security, dignity, and a sense of hope for the future. It's businesses like yours with a proven record of success that are going to help us meet or exceed that goal."
