INDIAN RIVER COUNTY -- With export sales increasing from 8 to 19 percent, Girard Equipment of Indian River County, earned the Export Excellence award presented by Gov. Rick Scott.
For the past 60 years, Girard Equipment has developed and grown to accommodate the demands of society.
"Earning the Exporter Excellence Award is the best evidence we have that banishing the word 'can't' from our corporate vocabulary was a truly brilliant decision," said Timothy Girard, GEI president.
Moving forward, Girard Equipment is well poised to continue to increase its export business.
Considering that emerging energy producing countries around the world are now practicing safer transportation methods, the designs and products of GEI are being eagerly adopted.
Mr. Girard trusts that subscribing to the belief that the American worker is still a valued asset means that America's best days are ahead of us and not behind.
As he accepted the award at the governor's mansion in Tallahassee, he recognized the community support received from the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce, especially from Helene Castletine, director of economic development, as well as elected county officials who have taken great interest in seeing the constant growth of GEI's business continues unabated.
"We are happy to call Indian River County our home," Mr. Girard said.
