to export expansion. The ‘E’ Awards Committee was very impressed with
Master Electronics’ presence in 135 markets with strong year-over-year
growth in export sales. The company’s innovative approach to eliminate

economy and create American jobs.”

vital branch of our distribution. Logistics and export processes, which
can be costly or sluggish if not addressed with exuberance, are key. We
are proud and humbled to receive this President’s ‘E’ Award on behalf of
all of Team Masters.”
