Foster Needle Receives President's |E' Award

The prestigious "E" Award for Excellence in Exporting was recently presented to felting needle supplier Foster Needle, Manitowoc, WI, in recognition for its efforts in international marketing. The award is presented to firms that have exhibited growth in export sales for the previous four years.

President Perk Foster told NONWOVENS INDUSTRY that 47% of the company's turnover last year came from export sales and that figure will be well over 50% in 1991. Foster Needle sells into more than 65 countries and has representatives in 30 countries.
