Baldwin Filters was named the Exporter of the Year by the Midwest International Trade Association at its 2013 World Trade Conference in La Vista, Neb., on May 17.
Baldwin says the MITA Exporter of the Year award is presented to companies that demonstrate both individual company accomplishments, and the importance and benefits of trade to the wider community, through outstanding achievement in the global marketplace.
Nebraska Lt. Gov. Lavon Heidemann recognized the company’s accomplishments, noting that Baldwin Filters has grown from one man making filters in his garage to a worldwide exporter. Baldwin products are shipped to 65 different ports around the globe. The company says it has been expanding its global reach at a rapid pace over the last 20 years.
Diane Karstens and Rosario Castillo of Baldwin’s international sales department represented the company at the conference and accepted the award on the company’s behalf.
“We are proud to have earned this honor,” says Brent Yaw, Baldwin’s vice president of International Sales. “Our company is geared to support equipment and customers around the world. Exporting our product has been and will continue to be an integral part of our growth plan.”
