BEMISAL’s exporting trajectory is recognized

by | Dec 27, 2017 | News

The Salvadoran packaging manufacturer Bemisal received the highest award granted each year by the Salvadoran Exporters Corporation (Coexport), recognizing its trajectory in foreign markets.

“We all share dreams and sacrifices to meet objectives, and it is nice to receive an award in recognition of our efforts,” said Francisco Quiñónez, president of Bemisal, during his acceptance speech for the Exporter Award.

During the XXXIX Outstanding Exporter Awards, Coexport recognized the work of five companies that were selected from a total of 22. The top award went to Bemisal, which has five decades of experience in the Salvadoran and regional markets.

Bemisal is a leading company in the paper, cardboard, and graphic arts sector. It employs 200 people, and during the holiday season, it expands its workforce by 40 to 50 positions. It exports its products from the United States to Peru, especially throughout Central America, the Dominican Republic, and Puerto Rico.

Pablo Durán, president of Coexport, pointed out that companies that sell their products in foreign markets are currently facing great challenges and therefore highlighted the work of companies such as the award winners, who “even in difficult situations such as those we are experiencing, continue to meet the demands of international markets”.

In this sense, Quiñónez urged businessmen to join efforts and find solutions to challenges such as the fiscal crisis, the low economic growth, and the growing migration. “We have serious fiscal problems, in addition to other worrisome situations such as disorderly immigration. This calls for the business sector to join in the search for solutions. And although late, this is the sector that can provide solutions to the problems,” he said.
