- Shotcrete Technologies is awarded a coveted E-award by the US Department of Commerce for its success in the international export market.
- “Exporting, especially to developing countries is a foundation of our sales growth, and we are honored to receive this award,” said Mary Jane Loevlie, CEO of Shotcrete Technologies. “In this challenging international environment, we are a small company able to compete with the large multinationals due to our nimbleness in the marketplace, and ability to ‘customize’ for each application. In the early 1990s exports made up less than 15% of our sales, but due to international demand for quality and service our exports have grown dramatically to nearly 50% of our total revenues.”
- Shotcrete Technologies has been providing products and services to the underground construction industry since 1979, but unlike many of its bigger rivals shotcreting is all the company does. “While other companies sell all types of concrete additives and equipment, only Shotcrete Technologies maintains a singular focus on shotcreting products and services,” said Loevlie.
- US Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker said: “Shotcrete Technologies has demonstrated a sustained commitment to export expansion. The ‘E’ Awards Committee was very impressed with Shotcrete Technologies’ innovation in developing products for the infrastructure repair industry. The company’s customization of products for export markets was also particularly impressive. Shotcrete Technologies’ achievements have undoubtedly contributed to national export expansion efforts that support the U.S. economy and create American jobs.”
