SASKATOON, Sask.—Steel structure maker Norseman Structures was named the 2012 winner of the Saskatchewan Trade and Export Partnership (STEP) Exporter of the Year Award late last month.
Sponsored by Export Development Canada, the STEP Exporter of the Year Award recognizes excellence in achievement and success in tackling export markets.
The award was presented to Norseman Structures on Sept. 26, 2012, at the STEP Trade Conference held in Saskatoon.
The finalists for the award were reviewed by a selection committee of Saskatchewan business leaders.
According to STEP President and CEO, Lionel LaBelle, the committee was focused on companies displaying a “high level of performance in introducing new products and services into world markets, significantly increasing their export sales, achieving a high ratio of export sales to total sales and an ability to create a positive impact on the provincial economy through job creation”.
This year’s finalists included Schulte Industries Ltd.; The Saskatoon Colostrum Company Ltd.; and TinyEye Technologies Corporation.
“It was an honour to accept this award and be recognized amongst top Saskatchewan and international businesses,” Norseman vice-president of client services and construction Darcy McLean said in a statement. “The award provides great acknowledgment for the hard work and dedication of our employees to be Fiercely Reliable in all that they do.”
