Vortex Valves Wins Exporter Award

November 25, 2008
Vortex Valves has been awarded the 2008 Governor’s Exporter of the Year Award by Kansas Governor, Kathleen Sebelius. The award is presented annually to a single Kansas company that has demonstrated excellence in export sales and international marketing. The award recognizes Vortex as a company committed to expanding sales in international markets and showcases it as a role model to other Kansas companies seeking similar success.

Vortex supplies material-handling valves to a global network of original equipment manufacturers, Fortune 500 companies, and process engineering firms. Its valves are used in the production of a range of products, from Pringles potato chips to the solid rocket fuel used in NASA space shuttles.

Vortex increased its export sales by 148% from 2004-07 and remains committed to transforming itself to compete in the global marketplace. This commitment is demonstrated by the company’s investment in technology, product development, overseas offices, and a new world-class facility in Salina, Kansas.
