Being part of (the EDGE) program gave my business national recognition and credibility. - ServerLIFT CEO, Ray Zuckerman
PHOENIX (PRWEB) May 01, 2018
ServerLIFT was just honored as an “Expert Exporter” by the 2018 Sun Corridor "Economic Development for the Global Economy" (EDGE) Program. On April 27th, the Maricopa Association of Governments (MAG) presented the honor to the data center lift manufacturer. MAG serves as the regional planning agency for the metropolitan Phoenix area.
MAG assistant director, Amy St. Peter, notified ServerLIFT CEO, Ray Zuckerman, of the honor. “The goal of the EDGE Program,” she wrote, “is to promote and support businesses active in international trade.”
ServerLIFT exports its purpose-built server handling devices to more than 60 countries. Zuckerman commented that the corporation’s newly earned title as an “Expert Exporter” brings new prestige to his business. “By honoring us with the title, the Maricopa Association of Governments is recognizing our ability to build successful trade relationships in the Arizona Sun Corridor, across the nation, and around the globe.”
The Arizona Sun Corridor hosts one of the nation’s fastest-growing populations. Arizona shares 378 miles of its border with Mexico. The Sun Corridor growth and access to ten international ports within the state make it critical to the region’s export economy.
Jackie Meck, the Mayor of Buckeye, AZ and chair of MAG stated in an association announcement, “With more than 95 percent of the world’s population and 80 percent of the world’s purchasing power outside the United States, our future economic growth and available jobs increasingly depend on expanding trade in the global marketplace.”
The EDGE Program, created to increase exporting in Maricopa, Pima, and Pinal counties of Arizona, recognizes businesses with international sales. An independent evaluation team of international trade experts selects the recipients of its “Expert Exporter” honor.
As recipients of this year’s honor, ServerLIFT Corporation participated in the Arizona Commerce Authority and U.S. Commercial Service ExporTech bootcamp. This event is designed to help businesses expand and strengthen revenues via exports.
