In a ceremony on June 29, 2011, Congressman Mike Kelly (PA-03) presented Rogers Brothers Corporation with the U.S. Commercial Service’s Export Achievement Award.
The Export Achievement Award recognizes U.S. companies that have made their first export sale or entered a new overseas market with the assistance of the Department of Commerce’s U.S. Commercial Service. With joint assistance from the U.S. Commercial Service in Pittsburgh and Lima, Peru, plus the Small Business Development Center at St. Francis University Small Business Development Center’s Center for Global Competitiveness, in Loretto, PA, Rogers was able to develop relationships within the Peruvian market and, ultimately to sell a lowbed trailer to a large copper mining company. Future sales in this market are currently being negotiated.
