NABCO Inc., the leading producer of explosive ordnance and CBRN disposal solutions to military services and civilian security agencies worldwide, has announced that it has received the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Commercial Service Export Achievement Award.
Presented to employees and executives at NABCO headquarters by Congressman Tim Murphy (PA-18), the Export Achievement Award recognizes U.S. companies that have successfully entered new markets overseas.
“NABCO is a great example of the success local businesses can achieve making superior products in America. Now a world leader in the design, development and manufacture of total containment vessels for explosives, NABCO has demonstrated the value of producing high quality goods.” said Congressman Tim Murphy. “I congratulate NABCO for their dedication and success in growing their markets overseas and creating hundreds of jobs for Americans.”
“NABCO is a great example of a sharp, export-savvy company that leveraged local U.S. Government resources to grow their market overseas, ” said Lyn Doverspike, Director of the U.S. Commerce Service in Pittsburgh.
With products and solutions that help government security agencies and first responders around the world confront criminal and terrorist organizations that use explosives – as well as chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) devices – to inflict violence on civilians and military personnel alike, NABCO’s suite of containment and management solutions are becoming the first choice of a growing number of overseas customers.
“As governments and first responders around the world continue to confront crime, terrorism and CBRN threats, they are seeking the most effective tools for safeguarding the public and protecting their own technicians,” said NABCO Chairman and CEO Frank Tobin. “We are proud to offer solutions that help military and civilian personnel around the world by keeping their people and communities safe.”
The Commerce Service recently worked with NABCO to establish links with the Brazilian Federal Police and British Royal Mail, efforts that led to new business opportunities for the company. In the past several years the Commercial Service has also advised NABCO regarding international business cultures, qualified agents and on other issues that have helped strengthen the company’s international growth strategy.
“We are honored to receive this award and are appreciative of the Commercial Service’s efforts to help us educate potential clients abroad about the strengths of our products and services,” said Tobin. “NABCO will continue to value the advice we get from the Department of Commerce about how we achieve additional international growth.”
