Allied Wire & Cable has been recognized with the Presidential “E” Star Award for Exports. Allied co-owner and co-president Tim Flynn traveled to Washington, D.C. May 22 to receive the award, presented by U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross.
Forty-three companies and organizations from across the country were recognized with the President’s “E” and “E” Star awards — for their role in strengthening the U.S. economy by exporting their products, writes Donna Rovins in The Pottstown Mercury.
Allied Wire & Cable was one of only eight companies that received the prestigious Presidential “E” Star Award for Exports. The “E” Star award recognizes previous “E” awardees who have reported four years of additional export growth.
Allied Wire & Cable has expanded and now occupies about 200,000 square feet in Perkiomen. Flynn said the company is looking to add employees.
