This month, the Small Business Administration announced (see story here) that IBA client Southwest Steel Coil (SSC) of Santa Teresa is its 2013 Exporter of the Year for Region VI (Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas and New Mexico). SSC, a steel coil supplier and steel slitter, has been a Gateway to Exporting client since the program’s inception. The company has experienced tremendous success developing its export market in Mexico, and particularly in that country’s maquiladora (twin plant) market. Region VI is a large geographical area that consists of a large industrial base, so it is a great honor that a New Mexico-based company has won this award.
SSC and its president, Ed Camden, will be honored in June at the New Mexico Small Business Week Awards Luncheon on June 4 at the Hotel Albuquerque.
