Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton has presented Jet Edge Inc., a waterjet manufacturer in St. Michael, Minn., with a 27th Annual Governor’s International Trade Award.
The award recognizes Minnesota businesses that have shown exceptional progress and success in international trade. The award also recognizes the tremendous positive effect that exports and trade have on the state’s economy and job growth.
"We are truly honored to be recognized by Governor Dayton for our international business efforts," said Nancy Lauseng, marketing manager, who accepted the award on behalf of Jet Edge. "During the past several years, Jet Edge has worked tirelessly to increase our international sales and enter new markets, including Asia, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East. We have benefited tremendously through our participation in the governor's trade missions to Japan, China, and Israel, and through the outstanding support of the Minnesota Trade Office and U.S. Commercial Service."
