World Cat announced in a statement that it received the 2019 Governor Export Award from the Economic Development Partnership North Carolina. The builder of World Cat and Glacier Bay power catamarans was one of six companies recognized.

The award is given to North Carolina-based manufacturers who have shown growing sales in international markets.

“The EDPNC is proud to celebrate companies like World Cat,” Glenn Jackman, EDPNC senior international trade manager, said in the statement. “They are leaders among the businesses we work with because they make amazing, innovative products, and that has allowed them to reach new levels of success in exporting in markets all over the world.”

“We’ve had a concerted effort to grow our brand internationally, and we can certainly see the recognition not only by the state of North Carolina, but also our growing customer base across the globe,” World Cat marketing and international sales manager Alexandra Flora added.

Now in its third year, the export awards program was developed with the North Carolina Department of Commerce and the Economic Development Partnership of North Carolina.
