Banishing the word CAN'T from our corporate vocabulary was a truly brilliant decision.

For the past 60 years, Girard Equipment has developed and grown to accommodate the demands of our changing society. As it stands, the United States has the world’s largest consumer market and is the largest producer as well as user of energy; fortunately for GEI they have been able to satisfy those needs accordingly by being a dominate supplier of hazardous liquid handling equipment to the North American road tanker market.

"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," says GEI President, Timothy Girard.

Moving forward, Girard Equipment is well poised to continue to increase their 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. Moreover, 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 Mr. Timothy Girard accepted the award Monday, December 10th at the Governor's mansion in Tallahassee, he was quick to recognize the community support received from the Indian River County Chamber of Commerce, especially from Director of Economic Development Helene Castletine; as well as the elected county officials who have taken great interest in seeing that the constant growth of GEI's business continues unabated. "We are happy to call Indian River County our home," boasted Mr. Girard.
