Key Technology has been selected for the 2007 Governor’s Trader of the Year Award that honors one Washington State business each year, recognizing innovative products or services that demonstrate outstanding success in international market development.
"At Key, technology innovation and a dedication to strong customer service are cornerstones of our business," noted David Camp, President and CEO of Key Technology. "Many of our customers have an international presence and it is our strategy to support these customers with superior service wherever they are located. This base of multinational customers supports Key in building its sales and service organization around the world and that global presence helps Key reach new customers in a wide number of regional markets. It’s very rewarding to be recognized for our success in these areas."
Key Technology maintains demonstration and testing facilities, manufacturing, engineering, R&D, parts, and service at its headquarters in Walla Walla, Washington, and at Key Technology BV in Beusichem, the
