Industry news Pelican Receives Presidential “E” Award P elican Products was awarded the Presidential “E” Award for Exports in May. The award was presented by U.S. Department of Commerce Secretary John Bryson at the White House. The “E” Award is the highest recognition a U.S. entity may receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports. “‘E’ Award winners like Pelican Products have excelled in this effort, demonstrating four years of successive export growth. It is companies like this that are helping to grow our economy and put more Americans back to work,” Bryson said. Pelican’s President and CEO Lyndon Faulkner and COO John Padian accepted the award. Congresswoman Janice Hahn, who represents the 36th Congressional District (which includes the company’s Torrance, Calif., corporate headquarters), also was present. “Pelican takes pride in selling high-quality products in every corner of the world and, most importantly, helping to create good jobs for American workers. We’re honored to receive the President’s ‘E’ Award, and feel it reflects Pelican’s continued commitment to its export business,” Faulkner said. Forty-one U.S. companies and organizations were presented with the “E” Award in May during World Trade Week ceremonies in Washington, D.C.
