Alabama Governor Recognizes Mack For Excellence In Exporting

Matt AwardMONTGOMERY, AL – Governor Robert Bentley of Alabama recently presented the Governor’s Trade Excellence Awards to Mack Manufacturing, based in Theodore, AL. Mack was one of eight Alabama companies singled out for excelling in international trade.

The governor’s presentation noted that Mack has been doing business internationally with its crane grapples and buckets for over 35 years. Export sales account for over 15% of Mack’s annual production.

Increasing exports from Alabama companies is a major priority in the Accelerate Alabama long-term economic development plan. “The success of these companies shows how Alabama products are reaching a global marketplace,” Governor Bentley said. “These companies are taking advantage of the tools available to them to serve customers all over the world.”

“All of these companies are leaders in Alabama for exports,” Alabama Department of Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield said. “By expanding their markets beyond those of the state and the U.S., they are creating high-paying jobs that support families, sustain jobs and make a major impact on the local and state economies.”
