Governor Justice honors 27 WV companies for their export success


27 West Virginia companies that grew their business by exporting a good or service to a new country last year were recognized by state officials in a virtual ceremony on June 30. Seven of these companies were first time winners. 

During the event, each business received the Governor’s Commendation for International Market Entry Award, which is given to companies that made their first sale to a new country in the previous calendar year. 

“2020 was a tough year for all West Virginians but these businesses kept going and kept working in spite of the pandemic,” said Gov. Jim Justice. “Exporting to a new country is an incredible accomplishment and we are all proud of their success. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all those who are making this happen in West Virginia.”
