Reliable Industries Receives US Presidential E Star Award
E-Star LogoThe E Star Award, presented by the President to recognize outstanding export success, is the highest honor American firms and organizations can receive. Winners of this award are helping their country as well as themselves.

The President’s E Award was created by Executive Order in 1961 to afford suitable recognition to persons, firms, or organizations that contribute significantly in the effort to increase U.S. exports.

In 1969, the President’s E Star Award was authorized by the Secretary of Commerce to afford continuing recognition of noteworthy promotion efforts by E Award recipients.

The President’s E Star Award recognizes continued superior performance in increasing or promoting exports. Only recipients of the E Award are eligible, and the level of performance must exceed that for which the E Award was given.

To qualify for an "E" Award, a manufacturer must show evidence of a substantial increase in volume of exports over a four-year period. Exports should constitute a significant portion of total product sales and/or be materially in excess of the industry's average percentage. The company also should demonstrate breakthroughs in especially competitive markets, introduce a new product into U.S. export trade, or open a new market.
