SnowPure increased its exports from 80% to 95% from 2013 to 2016. Exporting began with three countries and has rapidly expanded with its technologies currently being sold into 57 countries (update 2019: now 70 countries).
It is this recognition that led the U.S. Department of Commerce to award this prize to SnowPure.
Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross gave the award, and Representative Darrell Issa attended the ceremony.
Based in San Clemente, California, SnowPure makes and sells membrane-based purification technologies. These are used in various applications, such as pharmaceutical, hemodialysis, semiconductor, and power generation industries. SnowPure products are a component of ultrapure water systems.
“We are very grateful to the worldwide U.S. Commercial Service professionals who were instrumental in helping us to export so successfully,” said Michael Snow, SnowPure president. “Exporting is our focus. So much of the developing industrial world looks for environmentally-friendly American-made technology.”
Snow and Jennifer Nargizian, Manager of Customer Service, were present in Washington to receive the award from Secretary Ross.
