U.S. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross on Thursday presented Sterling-based WFN Strategies with the president’s “E” Award for Exports during a ceremony in Washington, DC.
The company, which specializes in submarine and terrestrial optical cable, microwave, mobile and Wi-Fi, satellite and other RF technologies, was among 48 U.S. companies giving the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.
“President Donald J. Trump has placed a high priority on restoring the balance of global trade to ensure American businesses and workers are not left behind,” stated Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross. “With companies like these awardees who have placed a premium on export success, we can reclaim the lost years of ever-expanding trade deficits.”
This year, 26 companies were honored with the “E” Award for Exports for demonstrating a sustained increase in export sales over a four-year period, according to the announcement.
