Careington Recognized by the State of Texas.

FRISCO, Texas -- Careington International Corporation, the premier marketer of discount dental, vision, health care and lifestyle plans, announced today it was one of two businesses headquartered in Frisco to be recognized for its impact on the local and state economy.

"The Frisco Economic Development Corporation (FEDC) was contacted by the Secretary of State's office requesting assistance in nominating a small group of local, longtime Texas businesses to recognize their contributions to the State of Texas," said James Gandy, president, Frisco Economic Development Corporation. "Two Frisco companies were chosen: Sunbelt Plastics and Careington International."

"We are honored by this recognition, and believe it indicates how much pride we take in serving our customers and promoting health and wellness," said Barbara Williams, chief executive officer, Careington International Corporation. "While many businesses have struggled during this economic downturn, we have increased our membership and product offerings, hired new employees and expanded internationally."

Texas Secretary of State Hope Andrade visited and recognized Careington for its tremendous impact on the Texas economy, the lives of its employees and the Frisco community. "Careington has helped Texans save their hard-earned money and gain access to affordable health care that has enhanced and improved their lives," said Secretary Andrade. "In Texas, not only do we celebrate the many new companies coming to our state, but we also appreciate and recognize our countless homegrown businesses that make such a positive impact across our state."

Since 1979, Careington has dedicated itself to improving the affordability and accessibility to quality health care professionals for more than eight million individuals. Careington moved its corporate headquarters to Frisco, Texas in 2001. The city's rapid growth and exceptional reputation, as a premier business travel destination throughout the U.S., has allowed the corporation to affordably expand and build firm relationships with members and clients.
