Pelican Products honored with export award

Pelican Products, a designer and manufacturer of high-performance case and packaging solutions and advanced portable LED lighting systems, recently received the 2011 Export Achievement Award at the World Trade Week Kickoff Breakfast.

The Southern California World Trade Week Awards Committee, in conjunction with the Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, gives the award to an outstanding company in the Los Angeles area that has successfully entered and/or expanded in the international marketplace.

Pelican, based in Torrance, Calif., operates in 12 countries and has 22 offices and six manufacturing facilities across the globe.

Its total export sales last year were up almost 35 percent from the previous year. It exports to countries in Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Africa, Latin America and Canada.

“As the majority of our products are manufactured in the United States and our business is gaining an ever-increasing global presence, with four new international sales offices opening in 2011, export is a significant contributor to the future growth of our business,” president and CEO Lyndon Faulkner said in a statement.

“The 2011 Export Achievement Award is tremendously valuable to us because it recognizes that our international team is driving growth in the business that has a material influence to our success,” he added.
