R&M International Recognized for Export Expansion
Delivered by the hands of Wilbur Ross, R&M International now boasts the
President’s “E” Award for Exports along with other select U.S. companies making a substantial impact on export initiatives. With a focus on producers of raw textile and plastic materials, R&M Sales Corporation focuses on disposal strategies for over production, substandard, and waste materials. The company then utilizes the materials for other opportunities in trading and recycling.
“The President’s “E” Award for Export is a great recognition of a long history of working very hard in developing export markets for raw materials in textiles and plastics,” said Stephen Rawson, Partner, R&M International. “It speaks to the importance we place on logistics, efficiency, and excellence. Foreign buyers want quality products from the United States and we are honored to receive the “E” Award.”
Companies are vetted through the U.S. and Foreign Commercial Service office network in the U.S. Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration for the coveted recognition. Selected winners are determined by substantial export growth and the strategies implemented to increase overall exports. R&M reports 79 percent of its sales are to export markets with 90 percent of its suppliers located in domestic market regions.
“Exporting isn’t just for big businesses, 98 percent of all U.S. exporters are small and medium-sized firms,” said Tony Ceballos, Director of the U.S. Commercial Service in Philadelphia. “Here in Pennsylvania, “E” Award winner R&M International is a great example of how businesses are boosting their bottom line and international competitiveness by exporting.”
“In just the last four years, R&M has nearly doubled its export sales, which now account for nearly 80 percent of total sales. Each year, our Philadelphia office—working in tandem with our worldwide U.S. Commercial service network—helps hundreds of businesses like R&M realize their export goals. Our office can assist your business as well,” Ceballos concluded.
