 MULTI-TECH SYSTEMS IS GOVERNOR'S INTERNATIONAL TRADE AWARD WINNER
 ST. PAUL, Minn., May 14 /PRNewswire/ -- Multi-Tech Systems, Inc. of Mounds View, Minn., is the winner of the 1992 Governor's International Trade Award. Lt. Governor Joanell Dyrstad presented the award to Raghu Sharma, chairman and president of the company, at noon today at the Minnesota World Trade Conference being held at the Radisson Conference Center in Plymouth, Minn.
 Multi-Tech Systems is a fast-growing manufacturer of computer modems and other data communications equipment for major international companies including Seimens/Nixdorf, Hewlett Packard, Digital Equipment, UNISYS and Compaq. It serves clients in Europe, Asia/Pacific Rim, Scandinavia, Africa and the Middle East.
 Founded in 1970 by Sharma, Multi-Tech currently generates $80 million in sales annually, and employs more than 200 people. Multi- Tech's international activity, initiated in 1986, today represents 25 percent of the company's total sales. Multi-Tech currently has distributors in more than 70 countries and operates Multi-Tech Computers, a manufacturing plant in New Delhi, India, and Multi-Tech Software Systems, a software development company in Bangalore, India. Software Systems develops software programs for Multi-Tech products.
 According to George Crolick, executive director of the Minnesota Trade Office, a division of the Minnesota Department of Trade and Economic Development: "Data communications is the fastest growing segment of the computer industry, and Multi-Tech Systems is one of the fastest growing companies in this market. With sales of $15 million in 1986 to about $80 million currently, Multi-Tech owes much of its growth to sales in foreign markets."
 Ronald Kramer, executive secretary of the Minnesota District Export Council, said Multi-Tech is "a class operation. We think the company's state-of-the-art products will keep it a leader in international markets." Each year, the District Export Council nominates a company that has excelled in the international marketplace for the award.
 The Minnesota Trade Office, the Minnesota District Export Council and the U.S. Department of Commerce, in participation with higher education institutions, serve on the World Trade Week Inc.'s board of directors, which organizes the conference.
 This year the conference is focusing on "Competing Profitably: Managing Global Markets" to an attendance of approximately 500 exporting, importing and international business service companies and 35 exhibitors.
