Whereas, the Vermont International Business Council (VIBC) is a standing committee of the Vermont Chamber of Commerce, and

Whereas, each year, the VIBC designates as the Exporter of the Year a company that contributes significantly to Vermont’s international trade stature, and

Whereas, this award recognizes the innovation and hard work that a company competing in the global market has displayed, and

Whereas, for the last three years, Sonnax’s export sales have experienced a double‑digit annual growth rate, and

Whereas, the company exports its products to more than 60 nations around the world, including emerging markets, and

Whereas, in presenting the award to Sonnax Industries Inc., the Vermont Chamber of Commerce’s Vice President Curtis Picard stated that Sonnax Industries exemplifies the spirit and intent of the annual Exporter of the Year award, now therefore be it

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives:

That the General Assembly congratulates Sonnax Industries Inc. of Bellows Falls on its designation as the Vermont International Business Council’s Exporter of the Year, and be it further
