“When West Virginia businesses enter new markets around the world, they help foster trade opportunities, support job growth and diversify our economy here at home,” Gov. Tomblin said. “Their ongoing success demonstrates West Virginia businesses and their employees can compete – and succeed – in the global marketplace.”
Baron Blakeslee is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of industrial cleaning equipment and for more than 75 years, we have been providing the most efficient and environmentally responsible standard and custom cleaning systems at our facility in Williamstown, WV.
Last year, Baron Blakeslee began exporting equipment to three new countries: Egypt, Ireland & Qatar. In the upcoming awards ceremony on July 21, Baron Blakeslee and the 45 other West Virginia exporters, will be personally presented with awards from Governor Earl Ray Tomblin. The Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry award is a framed piece of currency from each new country to which the recipient business began exporting. The presentation is based on the tradition of displaying the first dollar a business earns.
Baron Blakeslee is honored to receive such an award two years in a row and plan to continue to expand the business.
