Diversified Machine Systems Receives the Governor’s Excellence in Exporting Award at World Trade Day
Diversified Machine Systems was announced as one of two winners of the 45th Annual Governor’s Excellence in Exporting Award at the Ritz-Carlton Denver for World Trade Day 2015. As part of World Trade Day Denver 2015, Diversified Machine Systems (DMS), Colorado Springs manufacturer of DMS CNC Routers and Large Format Machining Centers, was announced as one of two winners of the 45th Annual Governor’s Excellence in Exporting Award given by the Office of Economic Development and International Trade (OEDIT). As a prestigious award given annually to Colorado-based companies since 1970, the Governor’s Excellence in Exporting Award represents an ongoing sustainability or increase in export sales for the winning companies. As a multi-billion dollar industry, exporting brings $15.4 billion into Colorado alone, and the award identifies companies who have played a role in this economic growth through international trade. The award was presented at the 42nd annual World Trade Day, a conference centralized around international trade as well as international business opportunities. This full-day event allowed for attendees to gain insightful information through keynote speakers, networking opportunities and breakout sessions. This year, the focus of the conference was on advanced industries such as Electronics, Manufacturing, Bioscience, Aerospace, Information Technology, Engineering/Infrastructure and Clean Tech/Energy. With approximately 20% of DMS’ business coming from international trade in 14 different countries outside of the U.S., DMS is honored to be able to represent the state in such an important and economic way.
“We’re honored to receive this award here at DMS and will use this opportunity to continue our efforts in promoting the Colorado’s Advanced Industries products and programs, as well as Southern Colorado’s manufacturing capabilities in the international markets,” says DMS Executive Vice President and CSO, Ed Hilligrass.
