Jet, Incorporated is leading the effort to expand Ohio exports and helping to meet the President's goal of doubling our nation's exports by 2015.
Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) October 17, 2014
U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman, the lead United States trade ambassador, and U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown toured the production floor of Jet, Incorporated, a leading provider of innovative wastewater treatment systems to 33 countries around the world. Jet also manufactures commercial package plant equipment for treating biological wastewater from homes, communities, and commercial facilities.
The visit was a part of an effort to tout Ohio’s all-time high exports total. In 2013, Ohio exported a record-breaking $50.8 billion of Made-in-America goods to the world.
Exports account for one quarter of Jet’s total sales, and the company has been able to hire new employees as a direct result of the export business. Moreover, many of Jet’s products are essential to providing clean, treated water for reuse and replenishing local water resources in the developing world.
“Jet, Incorporated is leading the effort to expand Ohio exports and helping to meet the President's goal of doubling our nation's exports by 2015,” said Senator Brown.
In 2012, Jet was recipient of the President’s “E” Award for exports. The “E” Awards are the highest recognition any U.S. entity may receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports.
Jet, Incorporated was founded by David MacLaren in 1955. The company designs and manufactures onsite wastewater treatment systems and commercial package plant equipment for treating biological wastewater from homes, communities, and commercial facilities. Depending on local regulations, the treated water can be reused for certain applications.
Jet products are sold in all trading regions through a global distribution network. Their employees attend both webinars and external training seminars related to export shipments and international sales transactions. Jet views education and training of international distributors and local regulatory agencies as other critical factors in increasing exports to developing countries. Creating an awareness of the opportunity for water reuse supports global goals for improved sanitation and environmental sustainability.
