Awareness Technology Honored with
Presidential E-Star Award for Success in Exporting
Commerce Assistant Secretary for Technology Policy Ben Wu today presented Awareness Technology Inc. of Palm City, FL, with the Presidential E-Star Award for excellence in exporting. The award is the highest honor the federal government can give to an American exporting company. It recognizes U.S. firms for their competitive achievements in world markets and their part in increasing U.S. exports abroad.
"Awareness Technology is an outstanding example of how small business innovation and ingenuity is working to build economic opportunity across our nation,” Wu said. “Small businesses like these create most of the new jobs in America, and the Bush administration will continue to work hard to help U.S. firms increase their exports. I congratulate Awareness Technology on their outstanding accomplishment.”
Awareness Technology, Inc. is a family-owned-designer and manufacturer of laboratory instruments and chemical analyzers that are used mostly in health care/clinical diagnostics. Awareness Technology participates in collaborative worldwide export counseling, trade shows, and numerous other export services for international sales to China, Russia, England, Canada, Saudi Arabia, India, Germany, and the United Arab Emirates.

The President's "E Star" Award recognizes continued superior performance in increasing or promoting exports. Awareness Technology was honored with the President's E Award in 2000. From 2000 to 2004, Awareness Technology increased its total sales attributable to exports by 15 percent - with exports now accounting for 84 percent of the firm’s total sales
