Governor Phil Bryant recognizes Mississippi companies

This is a news release from Mississippi Development Authority

Gov. Phil Bryant presented four Mississippi companies with awards today at the 2015 Governor’s Awards for Excellence in Exporting event, which was held at the Jackson Convention Complex. Designed to recognize Mississippi companies for their success in maintaining or increasing export sales to international markets, the awards recognize companies in the manufacturing and service sectors.

“I congratulate these homegrown Mississippi companies for their successful efforts to grow their business through international trade,” Gov. Bryant said. “While they are all unique in the products and services they provide, each one of them is helping demonstrate to the world that Mississippi has the tools and resources companies need to grow and be successful while creating jobs for individuals here at home and around the world.”

Tupelo-based Hyperion Technology Group, provider of multi-disciplined engineering and custom manufacturing solutions, received the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Exporting in the manufacturing sector. NVision Solutions of Diamondhead, creator of innovation geospatial solutions for small and large organizations, received the award in the service sector.

Gov. Bryant also presented the Governor’s Award for Export Achievement to two companies in the manufacturing sector, Belmont-based Wood Industries, Inc., and Trilogy Communications of Pearl. Wood Industries manufactures and distributes high-quality air compressors, air tools, parts and air-powered accessories, and Trilogy Communications manufactures advanced technology coaxial cables.

Four additional companies were recognized as Export Champions for their success in exporting. They are Flathau’s Fine Foods, Hattiesburg/Petal; Chevron Products, Pascagoula; Hunter Engineering, Durant/Raymond; and M-Tek, Inc., Madison.

“MDA salutes the recipients of this year’s awards for the significant roles they play in growing Mississippi’s economy through trade. These leaders embody the dedication to excellence, innovation and energy that is powering Mississippi's growth in trade around the world,” said MDA Executive Director Glenn McCullough. “We believe that these companies will continue to achieve extraordinary success in Mississippi for many years to come.”

The 2015 Governor’s Awards for Excellence in Exporting were sponsored by MDA and the Mississippi District Export Council.
