Kingsbury recognized for economic contributions

WASHINGTON, D.C. 6/21/12 (PennWell) -- Industrial manufacturer Kingsbury Inc. was recently recognized by U.S. Commerce Secretary John Bryson at a ceremony in Washington, D.C.

The Philadelphia-based company, which designs and produces parts for hydroelectric application, was given the President's "E" Star award in acknowledgement of its export growth.

"This administration is committed to leveling the playing field for American businesses and workers to help U.S. companies build things here and sell them around the world," Bryson says.

To qualify for the "E" Star Award, companies must demonstrate export growth or of supporting the export growth of others for four successive years. Applicants must show that their contributions are measurable, innovative, sustainable and broad in impact.

"It is companies like this that are helping to grow our economy and put more Americans back to work," Bryson says.

HydroWorld.com reported in June that Kingsbury and utility PPL Holtwood celebrated the 100th anniversary of the first bearing Kingsbury installed at the 108-MW Holtwood hydroelectric plant in Pennsylvania.
