“We’ve got a really good team here, and we always have, so we always kind of say that our team is kind of capable of anything. We’ve seen a lot of challenges in the past couple of years with Hurricane Michael, and so we’ve got a great team that gets the product out and we’ve been working with some good customers, so we kind of just push through with a lot of other businesses and we’re pretty happy with being recognized,” said Alex Willson, Chief Operating Officer.

The Department of Economic Development says GLOBE winners from 17 counties across the state collectively entered 75 new international markets.
