WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SnowPure Water Technologies, who makes and sells industrial and medical water purification technologies into the $5 billion global ultrapure market, today was presented the prestigious U.S. President's “E” Award. Created by Executive Order of the President, this award is the highest recognition any U.S. entity can receive for making a significant contribution to the expansion of U.S. exports and is given to only a few select companies nationwide.
SnowPure has increased its exports from 80% in 2013 to 95% in 2016. Exporting began with three countries and has rapidly expanded, with its technologies currently being sold into 55 countries. It is this recognition that led the U.S. Department of Commerce to nominate then award this prize.
Based in San Clemente, California, SnowPure makes and sells membrane-based, cutting-edge purification technologies. These are used in the pharmaceutical, hemodialysis, semiconductor, and power generation industries. SnowPure products are key components of an ultrapure water system.
“We are grateful to the worldwide U.S. Commercial Service professionals who were instrumental in helping us export so successfully,” said Michael Snow, SnowPure's President. "Exporting is our focus. So much of the developing industrial world looks for environmentally friendly, American-made technology."
U.S. exports totaled $2.21 trillion in 2016, accounting for nearly 12 percent of U.S. gross domestic product. Exports supported an estimated 11.5 million jobs nationwide in 2015, according to the most recent statistics from the International Trade Administration.
SnowPure, LLC is a privately-held small business based in California. It manufactures and sells membrane-based water purification and process separation components to system integrators in 55+ countries. With decades of exporting experience and industry knowledge, SnowPure works closely with OEMs to help optimize system design and performance.
