Bradford White recently was honored as the 2016 Pennsylvania Company of the Year by the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia. Bradford White was recognized for its extensive efforts to increase exports, thereby promoting manufacturing job creation in the U.S.

The WTCGP is a membership-based nonprofit organization and part of a network of more than 300 world trade centers in nearly 100 countries worldwide. Since 2002, the WTCGP has served as a catalyst for regional job creation, helping area companies generate more than $1.5 billion in incremental export sales and supporting more than 19,000 jobs. Bradford White has been both a member and strong proponent of the WTCGP since 2013, it noted.

 “Bradford White has relied on our association with the World Trade Center of Philadelphia to help navigate our global sales strategy,” Bradford White President and CEO Nick Giuffre said. “Our association with this organization has been a valuable asset in growing our international presence. It gives me great pride to ship our American-built, quality products all over the world.

Bradford White Executive Vice President and CEO Bruce Carnevale accepted the award. “We have and will continue to recommend the valuable services of the World Trade Center of Greater Philadelphia to all companies in southeastern Pennsylvania and New Jersey looking to take advantage of global business opportunities,” he said. “The market intelligence, customized research and international networking expertise opens doors in a way no single company could accomplish on its own.”
